Wellness Education


Sex can be a difficult topic for everyone. There are many social taboos surrounding the frank discussion of sex, but sex is, for many, an important part of their personal wellness. These pages discuss some important aspects of sexual life directly. They deal with birth control, the possibility of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease and contain frank safer sex tips provided by students for students.

If you wish to speak directly to a professional, check out the resources section which details information on several local clinics and some websites, make an appointment at health services to speak to one of the staff members there, or come in to see Emily Nagoski, the Wellness Education Director at Smith in her office at Clark Hall.
