Sexual Health

The World Health Organization defines sexual health as “a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination, and violence.” Here at Owls Care, we encourage you to make sexually responsible decisions that are in line with your own beliefs and values.

Some students choose to abstain from sexual activity. Some choose to engage in safer sex practices such as condom use to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections and unplanned pregnancy.

Whatever you choose to do, we’re here to support you. Owls Care provides you with many resources to help you make sexually responsible decisions!

Free condoms
One of the easiest ways to prevent the spread of certain STIs and HIV is consistent and correct condom use. Visit our condom basket and “Lubrication Station” to stock up on a variety of external (male) condoms, internal (female) condoms, dental dams, condom cases, and lubricant. Our staff is also available to provide a demonstration of each of these upon request. Our office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
