Sexual Health And Guidance [SHAG]
Talking about ‘Sex’ can often be a bit of a tricky issue for many people, regardless of their age or experience. Our message? Stay safe, stay sexy, and stay protected *wink*.
No one should be pressured into doing anything they don’t feel comfortable with when it comes to sex and sexual relations with others, but if you are sexually active, its about knowing your boundaries, respecting your partner, and being as safe as possible.
Stay Safe & Sexy:
Head over to your MSU Welfare Officer, Síona, who has several types of condoms which can be collected for free from her office. This is for both guys and gals, regardless of sexual orientation, as different forms of protection are stocked in the union this year!
Just carry one.
