SHADE’s Safer Sex Week Begins

Branden Largent

Looking to add more free condoms to your personal stash? Well you're in luck. 

Boynton's Sexual Health Awareness and Disease Education peer education group, known as SHADE begins its 2013 Safer Sex Week on Monday. 

The group will have a table giving out free safer sex supplies (yes, condoms), as well as safer sex advice, all week at Coffman from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Safer sex week features activities, like Bowling for Condoms from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday at Goldy's Game Room. Strikes and spares will earn you prizes. 

Other activities include a Safer Sex Carnival on Tuesday, a Sexual Health Fair on Wednesday (and a showing of Easy A later in the night) and a sexual health game night on Thursday. 

Check the events calendar for activity times and locations. 

Throughout the week, students can compete in a golden condom scavenger hunt. The first to find an envelope containing a golden condom will win 25 free specialty condoms and a gift card (find clues on SHADE's Facebook page). 

For a free confidential peer HIV test (no, it won't be processed by insurance or show up on your medical record), visit Boynton's main check-in desk from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for walk-in hours. 

By the end of the week, your condom stash should be replenished and then some.
