Everyone’s experience of sex and sexuality is different.

It's really easy to draw on your own experiences and your own perceptions of what is ‘normal’ when talking about sex. However, this isn't always an ideal approach to take for health professionals, as everyone’s experience of sex and sexuality differs significantly. At The Nookie Project we move the focus from ideas about what is ‘normal’ to what are safer practices, taking a harm-minimisation approach that is sex-positive and non-judgemental.


What is The Nookie Project?

We facilitate workshops and seminars on the delivery of sexual health education to young people, including the use of appropriate language, manner and approach.

We provide training for corporate entities, health professionals, health students, community health services, schools, and a number of other areas. We are experienced in running workshops for doctors and medical students.

In addition to the workshops, we also are currently engaged in creating a series of sexual health education videos and are looking to partner with a number of sexual health organisations around Australia. If you are interested in learning more about our current projects, please see more information here and contact us here.

We are based in Melbourne, but are prepared to travel. If you are interested in any of the services we offer, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our Vision

Our vision is that sexual healthcare is accessible and inclusive. It should be delivered in a way that is socially and culturally appropriate, and free from judgement. We also envision a time when a sexual health check is a normal part of a young person’s self-care without any associated stigma.

Our Mission

Our mission is to combat the rising prevalence of sexually transmitted infections in young people by improving the quality of the sexual health consultation and breaking down obstacles that currently prevent young people from accessing sexual healthcare. We will teach and promote the delivery of sexual healthcare that is evidence-based, uses non-judgemental ‘safe’ language, and is socially and culturally appropriate to young people.
