“Doing It Better” was compiled by the Wellbeing Team for Winter House 2016, using partly their own writing and partly resources already available within the community.

Sex menus are a tool for improving communication around sex. It’s much easier to ask for what you want (or don’t want) if you’re already set it down in writing.

Our friend Audrey has written about her experiences of using a sex menu here.
You can download a blank sex menu template here (Word document) or here (PDF). Feel free to fill-in, edit and share it as you wish.
