13 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.
