SEX ED BOOT CAMP

Sex Ed Boot Camp: Taking Care of Your Privates
April 21, 2014 at 6:30 pm -  WSU Hughes Metroplex at 29th St. North and Oliver
Free admission!

Sexologist Dr. Joni Frater and Esther Lastique are on a mission to help students deal with the challenges of relationships and sexuality in a college atmosphere. This dynamic duo use honesty, sensitivity and humor to help students own and celebrate their sexuality by learning:
·       the difference between hooking up and building a relationship,
·       sexual responsibility and consent
·       advanced techniques to maximize pleasure while playing it safe

The program is designed to engage students in conversation about love, sex, and everything in between.
This is NOT your typical sex ed lecture!

The program is co-sponsored by Student Health Services, Campus Recreation, Housing Residence Life, Office of International Education, Office of Multicultural Affairs, Student Involvement and the Student Wellness Action Team

WEBSITES FOR HEALTH INFORMATION

You can’t believe everything you see on the Internet and this is especially true when it comes to health information. However, not all health information on the Internet is bad. You just have to follow a couple simple rules to ensure you are getting accurate information.

Rule #1 Don’t “Google” or “Wikipedia” your symptoms and read every result. Some of the information may not be coming from medical professionals or be reliable.

Rule #2 When looking for medical information online, use websites sponsored by the government, medical schools, major research centers and national organizations.

Here is a list of websites that would be good sources for health information:

www.cdc.gov   -  Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC)
www.healthfinder.gov  -  U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
www.health.gov -  National Health Information Center
www.medline.gov -  Medline Plus
www.healthywomen.org - National Women’s Health Information Center (NWHIC)
www.mayoclinic.com  -  The Mayo Clinic
