Welcome to the Safer Sex Express! This service is for Resident Advisors (RAs) and groups (Greek chapters, student organizations, etc.) to request a larger supply of safer sex supplies at no cost to make available for their residents or group members. After requesting, safer sex supplies will be available for pick-up within approximately 3-5 business days at the front desk of the Student Health Center (first floor) between 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday. Requestors will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that their request was received and is ready for pick-up.

Sex and COVID-19: GET THE FACTS!
While COVID-19 is not a sexually transmitted infection, intimate activities that involve being physically close to someone, coming into contact with their spit - like kissing - can easily spread COVID-19.
If you are unvaccinated...
- It's best to avoid physical contact, including sex, with other unvaccinated people who don't live with you.
- The safest sexual partners are people who already live with you, or people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
- The safest sex partner you can have is yourself.
If you are vaccinated...
- It's safe for you to have sex and other types of close physical contact with other people.
- If you have a condition or are taking medicine that affects your immune system, talk with your doctor. You may need to keep taking all precautions to avoid COVID-19 — like wearing masks— even after getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
If you do choose to engage in sexual activity, make sure to use condoms and dental dams to help protect you and your partners from sexually transmitted infections. Dental dams and condoms may also help prevent the spread of COVID-19 during oral sex by preventing contact with spit. And using condoms during vaginal and anal sex may help prevent the spread of COVID-19 through things like feces and semen, if it turns out the virus can be spread that way (but scientists still don’t know if it can).
It’s important to wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds before and after you have sex.
