Sex. College is the most promiscuous time of most peoples’ lives and consequently the most important when it comes to sexual health. Sexual health is defined as the state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, which is a lot more comprehensive than most students realize. You cannot deny that college is the quintessential time in a young person’s life for new experiences. Students should be able to enjoy a healthy and well-rounded lifestyle that includes sex.
There is a lot to know first about yourself and your own sexuality (both physical and mental) and secondly about your partner’s before you can enjoy a sexually healthy lifestyle. Both education and experience (in that order) are at the heart of sexual health. Rather than having to learn from your own experiences, education allows you to learn what not to do so that you do not end up making mistakes.
In the spirit of encouraging sexually healthy practices among Penn Staters, the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) will be hosting a serious of presentations tomorrow night in 360 Willard. Starting off the series at 7:00 pm will be “The Vagina Monologues,” followed by Sam Richards and his wife, Laura, with the headlining presentation titled “The Needy Penis”. Allison Subasic from the LGBTA Resource Center will also share worthwhile insight. Closing the event will be a performance from “The Penis Monologues”.
Come out on Thursday night and enjoy some entertainment and broaden your knowledge about sexual health. All are encouraged to attend.
