Maine ranks sixth in the nation in ‘sexual health.’ In fact, the northeast U.S. seems happy on this front. The Northeast did well, with Vermont at the top of the list. Connecticut was second and New Hampshire third. Mississippi ranked the worst in sexual health.

The report ranked the sexual health of all 50 states and the District of Columbia based on 26 measures. The report rankings were based on the World Health Organization’s definition of sexual health, which encompasses wellness, human rights, sexual expression and identity, and pleasure.

According to the report, Maine ranked first in the nation on five of the 26 measures. Those included  laws related to abortion, sex education and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Maine’s worst showing, 38th nationally, was on the percentage of people aged 18-64 who reported ever receiving an HIV test.
