Cal Gets Week-Long Focus on Sex Ed

Sexual health week will be followed by family history month

Clear your calendar.  It's Sexual Health Awareness Week at UC Berkeley.

Condoms, raffles, and "naughty treats" are available to Cal students all week, along with lots of educational options of course.

The kicked off Monday with an onanistic event. The festivities continued Tuesday with workshops about college sex, and Wednesday with workshops on coital creativity.

Few details are available on Thursday's workshop, entitled simply "Feeling Sexy?" other than that it is being held in an "all-purpose room." Friday's theme is Relationship Awareness Day, with a focus on alternative lifestyles.

The event is hosted by the Sexual Health Education Program, and features such slogans as "Keeping Cal GOLDEN in and out of the bedroom." All these workshops and conversations should keep the student body busy for quite some time, or at least until the university's biggest event: National Condom Day in February.

And if condoms aren't your thing, don't worry: October is Family History Month, an opportunity to explore one of the many outcomes of unprotected sex.

The California Genealogical Society is holding such workshops as "Who Do You Think You Are?" as well as training session for creating genealogical time-lines and searching newspaper archives.
