2 SEX It is a beautiful and amazing part of being human! It is an intimate expression of love between two people!It is how we all come into being!It is also a sensitive and private matter that deserves respect!Use this slide to set the tone of respect and appreciation for our innate sexuality. Make sure participants feel “safe” to anonymously express their responses with the clickers.
3 Let’s be anonymously honest . . . My sexual preference is:HeterosexualHomosexualBisexualEmphasize again the anonymity and confidentiality of the responses. This is sensitive and to be used only to gain insight into your “audience” and to respect the fact that there are sexual differences. If there are homosexual or bisexual participants then you know to be sure and more thoroughly address anal sex and oral sex and to talk with heightened sensitivity.
4 In my lifetime, I have had sexual intercourse (vaginal or anal) with: No oneOnly one person2-5 people6-10 people10+When there are students indicating A. No One, be sure to take note of that as a positive social norm. NOT EVERYONE is sexually active just because they are in college. We have to try and dispel the myth that sex = rampant sex!
5 In the past month, I have had sexual intercourse with: No oneOnly one person2-3 people4-5 people5+When there are C.,D., E., responses it reinforces the emphasis on potential risks and need to emphasize testing and safe practices!
6 I have participated in oral sex at some point in my life: YesNoThis response is almost always higher than the intercourse response!

8 Never been sexually active When I have been sexually engaged alcohol or marijuana or some other drug was part of the scene.YesNoNever been sexually activeThis is a point where sexual abuse risks can be discussed and the truth that alcohol IS the NUMBER ONE DATE RAPE DRUG!
9 Is SEX a GAME?Have students write an alphabet letter on their card starting with A-Z. If it is a small group make sure someone has a P, R,S,V on their card. Have student mingle and each time they meet another person they record all of the letters on the other person’s card onto their card. Keep the time to a couple of minutes. After students return to their seats tell them this is a symbolic activity of what it might be like over a college lifespan of sexual encounters. They should think back to how many pretend sexual engagements they experienced. Then follow with the next slides having a show of hands each time for how many students have the letters and that particular STD based on their exposure. After the mix and mingle time, ask students how many different people they were able to engage during the designated time. Explain that this was an exaggerated example of what could be the number of sexual “encounters” during their sexually active time span.

49 Random Facts!!You may not even get close to these facts but they are here to help drive home the biological reality of sexual reproduction.
50 The Bonding MysteryNatural Bonding hormones make us want to pair and bond with ONE individual:Oxytocin – reproductive “love hormone”, released maternally(Lack of oxytocin associated with sociopathy, psychopathy & narcissism)Vasopressin – associated with pair bonding – decreases after multiple bondsThis is an important point that can be made and is not that well known. The basic premise is that the more sex partners we have the less “bonding” commitment we have. The tape demonstration where tape is wrapped around the arms of two volunteers set up as potential sex partners. They take off their tape and stick them together holding just the corners. Then they select other partners and wrap them around their arms. Then those partners decide to have sex and stick their tape strips together. Repeat the pattern one more time and note that the last couple have trouble holding their bond!
51 Sensational Sexual Reproductive Facts about the Male Beginning around age12 to 13 testosterone causes the beginning of sperm production in the testicles suspended from the body in the scrotum so that the temperature is kept lower than body temperature.A healthy young male will produce about 100,000,000 sperm each day!!! One thousand sperm per second!!!A single ejaculation may contain up to 500 million sperm!
52 Sensational Reproductive Facts about the Female Typically around age 11 to 14 estrogen will cause the breasts to begin forming, hips will widen and menstruation and ovulation will beginThe menstrual cycle occurs about every 28 days as the uterus continually prepares to nurture a fertilized eggA woman will typically menstruate 400 times in a lifetime usually until her 40’s or 50’s when menopause sets in
53 More female fascinating facts Each month about 14 days before the next menstrual cycle a ripened egg from one or both ovaries is released (ovulation)Females do not continue to produce new eggsAn unborn baby girl will have about five million eggs in her ovariesBy early teenage years, she will have about 300,000 eggs Still more than needed for the 400 ovulations
54 Females often have irregular cycles making ovulation unpredictable and meaning she could become pregnant almost any time she has intercourseThe released egg in the fallopian tube must be fertilized by the sperm within 24 hoursThe millions of sperm racing to fertilize the egg can actually live for 3 to 5 days
55 And so . . .Our sexuality has the innate purpose to procreate our species!Something to keep in perspective!
