Sex Discussed Here! for Orientation

Marshall and Dorian presenting sexual education orientation program

Designed specifically for first-year Orientation (freshmen or all incoming students), this customizable program covers sexual health from A to Z. With humor and honesty that college students love, our sex educators address the benefits of abstinence, and then go on to ensure students who choose to be sexually active have the information they need to make smart, safe sexual choices. Our friendly, accessible, funny approach entertains students while offering them a smarter, healthier, better-informed approach to sex as they begin their time in college.

Customized for the needs of your campus

Our Orientation program has a modular design, allowing us to customize it easily by "sliding in" and "sliding out" educational segments on various topics based on the needs of the college. We have conversations with each school that books it to find out if there are issues of particular concern, and whether there are topics they'd rather not have us a discuss, and then revise our program accordingly to fit with the campus culture and context. We frequently add in college-specific statistics, facts, and resources to our presentations. The program has successfully been tailored for the needs of Catholic colleges, women's schools, and environmental-themed colleges, along with a wide variety of public, private, rural, and urban universities. It works well with audiences of any size -- we've presented to freshman classes ranging in size from 100 to 3,000+. The standard program covers the same topics as our Sex Discussed Here! program:

  • both abstinence and safer sex (including how to use safer sex supplies correctly)
  • consent
  • Over 3,000 incoming students at Grand Valley State University attend our presentation as part of their orientation.

  • communication in sexual situations
  • drinking & sex
  • sexual assault prevention
Staff organizers have the option of having us add one or several of the following modules, based on their campus' needs:
  • more detailed information on STI prevention (beyond just teaching how to use safe sex supplies)
  • tips on drinking more safely (designed for schools that will not be covering alcohol issues in more depth during another section of Orientation)
  • a section on LGBTQ issues with the goal of increasing tolerance and reducing homophobia (the entire program is inclusive and non-heteronormative, even without the addition of this module)
  • more detailed advice about making abstinence work if that's your choice, and quotes from real students on your campus about why they're choosing abstinence
  • bystander intervention
  • recognizing stalking behaviors and domestic violence, compared with healthy relationships and healthy breakups
  • pregnancy prevention: strengthening students’ motivation to prevent or delay pregnancy
  • new modules created specifically for a college by request
Sex Discussed Here! for Orientation provides:

  • An interactive, audience-focused exploration of why some college students drink before they have sex, and the risks and dangers of mixing alcohol and sex
  • Practical facts and tips about how to use condoms and other safer sex supplies correctly in order to reduce HIV and STI transmission (information not taught in most American high schools)
