SHAG WEEK

 

SHAG week is all about celebrating safe sex and working to destigmatise conversations around sex and sexual health.

We want to do our part to promote healthy relationships and educate you on the spread of STDs, so this week your SU will be running events, hosting charities, myth busting, and generally breaking down stigma and embarrassment.

Help us start open and honest conversations, let’s talk about sex!
