Sex and sexual health can be awkward issues to discuss— if we let them be. Think back to middle school when everyone began to experience the changes of puberty. Pretty awkward, right? But the older we all became, the more prominent the topics of sex and sexual health were (and still are) in our lives. These are topics that NEED to be discussed no matter how awkward they may be. And not the birds and the bees type of talk. We need facts! Did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly half of 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year among people aged 15-24 years old? This can definitely be a shock to some.
Thankfully, Georgia Southern is doing its part to combat this issue by giving students the opportunity to engage in awesome programs like Sex Signals. Sex Signals is a humorous, unorthodox presentation that examines dating, sex, gender, stereotypes, sexual assault and bystander intervention. This is not your parent’s coming-of-age speech. This program contains explicit language and content. It also includes audience participation.
Sex Signals will take place in the Assembly Hall of the Nessmith-Lane Building on the following dates and times:
- Monday, August 31, 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
- Tuesday, September 1, 3:30 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 9:00 p.m.
- Wednesday, September 2, 4:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 9:00 p.m.
- Thursday, September 3, 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
Each presentation is scheduled to last 90 minutes. Attendance verification will be provided at the close of each show.
Unfortunately, this presentation is limited to the first 350 people only. It’s recommended that everyone chooses multiple presentation times and arrive early to ensure that they can attend one of them. Clearly, this is a presentation that no one should want to miss!
