  1. Way to go Sophie!! I love her. She is doing incredible work. The more we talk about sex, the more we will all be comfortable with the fact that it’s a normal part of being human.

  2. Glow-in-the-dark condoms aren’t nearly as reliable as preventing pregnancy and STDs as standard condoms, and both HPV and herpes can be transmitted via skin-to-skin contact, not just sexual intercourse.

    It’s great that you’re giving out information to students and making sure it’s fun and approachable, but it also needs to be accurate.

    1. Out of curiosity why would glow in the dark condoms be less effective? Wouldn’t it be based on the material they are made of rather then additives to the plastic?

  3. The whole condom fairy thing irritates me. If I am going to have sex I should be responsible enough to buy my own condoms. Put that money to lowering tuition.

    1. Sure, it’s an option, but my battery bills are climbing through the roof, and so are my heating bills. Sometimes you just want a warm body to help you through the night, Mrs. M.

  4. Well this is a doozy…its seems that several residences such as 22/24 Buswell aren’t aloud to receive condoms even though they are clearly labeled as BU dorms and receive interdepartmental mail

  5. Way to go BU Student Health/Wellness and Prevention Services, Sophie Godley, Dr. Weber and Teri A! This is a way to spread information and awareness to students about this and other prevention topics!

  6. Healthy sexuality is an important concern for all men. On one level, sex is just another hormone-driven bodily function designed to perpetuate the species. For many men, thinking about sex starts early, often before puberty, and lasts until their final days on earth.

  7. From a men’s point of view, sex can be very different from a woman’s point of view. Although you may not fully understand a man’s feelings by reading this article, knowing their point of view can clear up misunderstandings in a relationship. Although every man’s view of sex may be different, the following issues are common to almost all of them.
