Sexual Health Education Program

Sexperts 2019

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.

Sexpert Education Clinic

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 Tang Center to:

  • Discuss sexual decision-making, sexual communication, safer sex, and contraceptive options
  • Take a free rapid HIV antibody test (offered once a month; space is limited and clients will be tested on a first come, first served basis)
  • Get free samples of condoms, dental dams, and lube

Schedule your Sexpert Education Clinic Appointment through eTang.


Sex 101: Topics in Sexual Health

SHEP interns teach two sections of “Sex 101: Topics in Sexual Health and Sexuality” for academic credit through DeCal. The course allows students to:

  • Gain a comprehensive knowledge of anatomy, STIs and safer sex
  • Examine differing preferences, ideas, and influences around sexuality
  • Experience a safe space for discussion, acceptance, exploration, and understanding


Outreach

Outreach activities are highly interactive and provide free samples of condoms, dental dams, and lube:

  • Annual awareness events including Sexual Health Awareness Week and National Condom Day
  • Staffing an interactive table at your health fair or event
  • 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.

Schedule your Outreach Consultation appointment.
