A Safe and Sexy PSA

It’s Friday/Valentine’s Day! You know what that means? Time to get that sweet sweet consensual lovin’ on! (Though let’s be fair, it should always be that time). We wanted to take this time to remind everyone about access to protection on campus, so we asked Willa Beckman ’15who works for WesWell, a few questions:

Students can get condoms for free on campus?? What’s the deal with that?

Yes!  Students can get SO MANY CONDOMS FOR FREE ON CAMPUS.  We have a whole wall of condoms in the WesWell office at Davison Health Center.  Come by and grab some!  Also, if you work for reslife, you should come pick up one of our pre-made goodie bags to keep your residents protected all the time!

Lust, Lies, and Latex: Condom Qualms

condoms

This is a school where people are down to talk about sex. We’re more than eager to share stories of last night’s sexcapades with our friends. We advocate for consent and take a stand against sexual violence. We’re open to going to lectures, taking classes, and engaging in discussions about sex. So at a school where everyone is so gung-ho about sex, why do people still seem to be confused about condoms (this is not how it’s done)?

Of course, there are many ways to have safe, consensual, positive sexual experiences as well as tons of different forms of birth control. But if you are using condoms, you may relate to some of these struggles. From the humorous to the disturbing, here are some of the best and worst anecdotes and experiences we’ve heard lately about the plight of the condom. Who knew a thin layer of latex could be so controversial and amusing?

Safe Sexfest2010: Cumming Soon!

ASHA (AIDS and Sexual Health Awareness) wants YOU to know that safe is sexy! That’s why we’ve partnered with several campus and community groups to bring you Safe SexFest 2010. From November 3rd to November 12th ASHA wants everyone at Wes to think about making sex safe: this means protecting yourself from STI’s and unwanted pregnancy, as well as communicating effectively to ensure that every sexual activity is safe, consensual, …and fun!

ASHA has partnered with student groups such as the Feminist Network, Sign Language House, and Students for Communication and Consent as well as community groups Planned Parenthood and the Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective to present a range of events from a Sex Toy Workshop to Free STI testing to a Sex Signs Workshop to Sexley: Sexual Health Fair in Exley…and much more! Safe SexFest will culminate in Sexy Can I: a party to promote safe sex and communication and to raise money for local sexual health organizations. MORE DETAILS COMING SOON! Ok Wes, let’s start keeping it safe and sexy!
