Sex the Sex with WeSex

Willa Sexman ’15 sent you a sext:

Sex things are great! Ten thousand emails a week are overwhelming! Let’s do more sex things with fewer emails!

Message wbeckman(at)wesleyan(dot)edu to be added to the WeSex listserv and get a weekly email on all sex (and health and queer) things at Wesleyan. Updates from ASHA, the PHAs, the SART Intern, We Speak We Stand, SFCC, Take Back The Night, the Clinic Escorts, Unlocked, and QueerWes will be combined and sent out in one (really just one I promise!) message letting you know all of the things going on during the week, how to get involved, and where to get free condoms and sex toys.

Involved in a sex-related group that isn’t part of WeSex? Email wbeckman(at)wesleyan(dot)edu about your group to get on the list!

wespeakwestand

From orientation intern Kate Davis ’16:

WE Speak WE Stand is two series of monologues written and performed by Wesleyan students addressing sexual violence and alcohol use. These peer theatre pieces are a powerful introduction to sexual violence and alcohol use on campus and aim to create a campus that is actively engaged in the prevention of sexual assault and relationship violence and advocates for the responsible use of alcohol.

***If you would like to perform, please contact Alysha B. Warren, Therapist/Sexual Assault Resource Coordinator, no later than Friday, July 19th – awarren[at]wesleyan[dot]edu – reference “We Speak We Stand” in the subject line. Please review all information and if you decide to participate, please send Alysha your student id and cell phone number with the time to contact you for a quick phone interview.***

WesWell Director Tanya Purdy invites you to speak up and stand up for your friends and classmates:

WE Speak, WE Stand aims to create a community that is actively engaged in the prevention of sexual assault, relationship violence and advocates for the responsible use of alcohol. The goal of the program is to empower bystanders to intervene in high risk situations involving alcohol use, sexual assault and relationship violence. Empowered bystanders make the campus community safer by standing up and speaking out when they witness situations that could potentially harm the health and safety of others. Intervening with peers can be challenging for a number of reasons and training will provide you with the skills to move from inaction to action and intervene safely and effectively.
