The Sexual Health Education Program's (SHEP) mission is to empower students in feeling comfortable with their bodies and making informed decisions about their sex and sexuality, including whether or not to be sexually active.
Services provided are inclusive of all races/ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and levels of sexual knowledge and experience.
Students can meet one-on-one (and/or with their partner) with a trained Sexpert on Fridays from 12-3pm in Health Promotion (2nd floor of UHS) to:
- Discuss sexual decision-making, sexual communication, safer sex, and contraceptive options.
- Get an HIV antibody test.
To meet with a Sexpert and have your questions answered, schedule your Sexpert Education Clinic Appointment via the eTang portal today! Rapid HIV Testing Appointments are available but not required - use this Google calendar to register.
Outreach activities are highly interactive and provide free samples of condoms, dental dams, and lube, when possible:
- Annual awareness events including Sexual Health Awareness Week and National Condom Day
- Educational presentations for your class, organization or living center; see current workshop topics
- Advice and materials for students who wish to put on their own sexual health workshop
- Random distribution of safer sex supplies to Berkeley students
To request an outreach service, complete the SHEP Resource Request Form with at least 1-week advance notice.
Each year, SHEP celebrates Sexual Health Awareness Week (SHAW) in September / October and National Condom Week in February.
Sexpress at Memorial Glade
Sexpress at Memorial Glade! Find SHEP students tabling near the Moffitt Library entrance and stop by to pick up safer sex supplies - lube samples, external and internal condoms, educational brochures, and giveaways like condom carriers, stickers, and buttons (while supples last).
All safer sex supplies are pre-packaged into safer sex kits with five condom samples (you can choose from regular, larger-size, or non-latex kits), three lube samples (one silicone, one hypoallergenic water-based, and one water-based), and a mini pamphlet on using condoms correctly.
Sexpress Safer Sex Supplies Delivery
In an effort to support campus efforts to slow the spread, and in response to increasing COVID cases on campus, Sexpress delivery of safer sex supplies is temporarily postponed. If you need safer sex supplies before we resume our delivery service, please check out our Safer Sex Supply map with locations within 1 mile of campus where you can purchase safer sex supplies.
