Sexual Health & Pleasure

Sexual health and pleasure are essential to our overall health and well-being.  

When education and awareness focus on the positive aspects of sex rather than the negative, people feel more comfortable with their sexuality and are more likely to engage in safe and enjoyable behaviors which can in turn improve outcomes for contraception uptake, disease prevention, and the elimination of gender-based violence. 

The Case for Her is committed to using our platform to ensure that we communicate inclusively, respectfully and from a rights-based perspective.  We pledge to keep amplifying the evidence on pleasure-based sexual health and are proud to partner with the following organizations:

“The Case for Her has been pivotal for Aquafit Intimate’s viability and growth. We met Cristina Ljungberg and Wendy Anderson after receiving the first installment of the Israel Innovation Authority grant of $600,000 for our work on sexual wellness self care, of which TCFH invested 25% (matching). This was at a point where no VC’s or angels in Israel were to be found to support our work.  We have gained so much more than funding! Cristina and Wendy are true partners, soundboards for ideas and feedback. Always insightful, clear, passionate and supportive. This past year, Aquafit has been buttressed by the Case for Her’s unwavering advocacy for women’s intimate wellness.”

“The team at The Case for Her are amongst the most trail-blazing and courageous investors in women’s health. They never shy away from investing in the taboo, but critical and chronically overlooked, areas that are central to all of our health and wellbeing. They have been extraordinary thought partners and collaborators on La Ventana, our project that is seeking to take a youth-driven approach to pleasure-based sex ed. They funded this project when others were too reticent – and because of their support, they’ve put pleasure on the map!”
