The first world sexual health day and Komaja Macedonia

Promotion of healthy and happy view of sexuality

Let´s talk about SEX

The World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) celebrated the World Sexual Health Day for the first time on September 4th, 2010. Let’s talk about it.... an intergenerational discussion, was chosen as the theme. The purpose of World Sexual Health Day was to encourage open and respectful discussion on sexual matters. Factual information leads to healthy sexuality and encourages positive relationships.

Komaja Society for the Development of the Art of Living, as the organization which is the only member of the World Association of Sexual Health from Republic of Macedonia organized some activities promoting a healthy and happy view of sexuality and encouraging people to talk more openly.

“Yoga and Meditation for Sexual Health” was the title of the workshop held in the NGO Centre of City of Skopje, where the Declaration of Sexual Rights of WAS on Macedonian language was delivered among the participants. Also, was delivered the brochure “Love-Erotic Therapy” from A.A.Makaja which was presented on the WAS Congress in Paris 2001.

On Sunday in the City Park in Skopje was organized football game in which men and women were playing together, but women were especially inspired to play!!:) On the end of these activities in the informal talks we shared “baklava” – traditional Macedonian-Turkish delight with walnuts and pistachios - known as good aphrodisiac – also following the main theme – sexuality:)

As one of the important things was to bring the day to the attention of the press and the general population, we realized few media appearances, as the following ones:
Representatives from Komaja Society- Skopje, Rosano Colakov and Biljana Rimini Sazdanovska,  were guests on AB TV (Private Cable TV) on the talk show “Summer Club”. Also, they were guests on Kanal 5 TV (private national broadcasting service) on the show “Hello Macedonia!” On Saturday in the weekend edition on one of the most popular daily newspapers in Macedonia “Utrinski vesnik” there was published big article about sexual health with the title “Sex for the New Millennium”, written by Biljana Rimini Sazdanovska.

That was modest contribution of Komaja Macedonia for the World Sexual Health Day. We are happy that we took part in the world celebration of happy sexuality!!!

Dear Komaja,
Many thanks for the report - it certainly sounds as though it was a great success.

Best wishes,
