Condom Man and Friends materials including coloring pages and button making! Copies of the Little Brown Book will also be available.

*”Food For Thought” game station*
2 or 3 people at a time have a set number of fruits and veggies to cover up with condoms. The person who covers them all in the least amount of time OR who covers the MOST in a given amount of time wins!

A larger version of this will happen for Sex Week (March 13-19th), so be on the lookout for that!

Updates for Spring 2011

This blog has been a bit quiet (well, very quiet, honestly), but get excited because it’s going to get hot and heavy once more! Spring 2011 promises to be ridiculously amazing and event-packed. To start off, let’s update you on what we did Fall 2010, and then move onto some of the immediate updates for Spring 2011.

We had 3 events with Sequoia Redd (if you missed them, check her blog for the reprinted materials & outlines!):

And we were also involved with World AIDS Day programming.

For Spring, we can’t let you know exactly what we’re cooking just yet, BUT here are some tidbits to tantalize you:

  • We were selected as a GACC Safe-Site for the Spring 2011! Hurrah! Expect lots of Trojan condoms.
  • We have 2 listservs which you can join: one for updates about SHEEC events and relevant stuff, and one for those who want to help organizing the events (more high-traffic than the former). Check ’em out here.
  • Sex Week 2011 (March 13-19) is shaping up super nicely. Block off that entire week for SO MUCH FABULOUS STUFF. Even if you’re not a Brown student, you’re going to want to come. Again. And again. Most (if not all) our events are open to the public, so take advantage of these unique educational opportunities!
  • We’re also doing a bunch of programming outside of Sex Week, because sex-positivity and education has to be a constant process! Expect workshops on “Green Sex” and eco-friendly sexuality, managing jealousy, dealing with a breakup (and situations that CALL for a breakup), how to talk to your doctor about your body & sex-life, asexuality, abstinence, and other stuff, as well as a raffle at the Brown/RISD drag show.

Great American Condom Campaign Safe-Site

SHEEC was selected as a Fall Semester 2010 Great American Condom Campaign Safe-Site! Hurrah!

“You are joining 1,000 other young people in creating a sexually healthy nation. More than 2,300 people applied to become a SafeSite this round. In October, Trojan will ship a box of 500 condoms to the address you entered on your application, so you can get started on distributing condoms to your peers!”

What is the GACC?

The Great American Condom Campaign is a youth-led grassroots movement to make the U.S. a sexually healthy nation. Each year, GACC members give out 1,000,000 Trojan Brand condoms on college campuses across the United States, educate their peers about sexual health, and organize to improve the policies that affect young people’s health and lives.
