S.H.A.G. Week

The week encompasses a diverse range of activities and advice around the topic of sex and sexual attitudes including STI’s, contraception, sexualities, relationships and consent. S.H.A.G. week is not just for the sexually active, it’s also for students with opinions on culture,
those who want to prepare themselves for when they are ready to have sex and those who want to learn about personal health more generally.

Sex is something everyone is going to experience at some point in their lives. Putting the subject in a deep dark corner out of reach and out of sight will only increase unwanted pregnancies, STD’s and
makes people think they have something to be ashamed or embarrassed about instead of seeking advice and support.

So don’t shy away… let’s talk about sex!
