World Sexual Health Day

 

World Sexual Health Day: The Birds, the Bees, & the Basics!
Wednesday, September 4, 2019 4pm – 7pm

Hodges Library, 1st Floor

We’re celebrating World Sexual Health Day with an evening of fun and evidence-based sex ed! The event is an inclusive space for students to ask anonymous questions about consent and sexual health to a panel of professionals, engage in activities related to how to use barriers correctly, communication skills related to consent and safer sex practices, and effective contraception options, and participate in a Red Zone pop-up for a free consent t-shirt!

The panel and Q&A begin at 4pm, inside of Lindsay Young Auditorium.

Activities and the Red Zone pop-up begins at 5pm on the 1st floor.

 

What is World Sexual Health Day?

World Sexual Health Day is an awareness day to promote sexual health. It is observed annually by countries all over the world on September 4th. Sexual health is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as “…a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.”

This event aims to provide sexual health education that is informed by national data, local data, and the 2017 Annual Health & Wellness Survey which assesses UT student health behavior.
