SHAG week stands for Sexual Health Advice and Guidance week! This is when your Student Union gets a bit filthy and spends a whole week talking about SEX and SEXUALITY! The week is fun, lively and informative. We have loads of events throughout the week and we want to see you all coming to your SU, getting involved, asking questions, getting lots free condoms, sweets, prizes and advice… what more could you ask for?
Because sex is important, natural and can be great fun. Unfortunately it can also be unwanted, unsafe and can result in serious STIs. I know most of you are thinking blah blah I’ve had the sex talk and I know what I’m doing, but some of you clearly don’t! 1 in 14 students are walking around with Chlamydia. The fact is ANYONE can get an STI; no ones perfect and mistakes are made. So we like to help our students and give lots of fun friendly advice. It’s SEX why wouldn’t you want to talk about it.
Our amazing acoustic night is hosting one-off love themed special. Come down for drink and listen to the greatest (and worst) love and sex songs as you’ve never heard before! Along with some other fun surprises and freebies.
Our own union debate society will be having their first union debate on sexual attitudes. This should be a great opportunity to be controversial, engage in an interesting debate and discover what Newcastle students really think about sex!
Head down to mens bar for a pint and a raffle! All the proceeds will be going to Charity, prizes include an Ann Summers Hamper, Drink vouchers, event vouchers and cosmetics. Tickets will be 50p each and can be bought all week in the SHAG tent. Come along to our SHAG tent for advice, Chlamydia testing, free condoms or just for free hot drinks and biscuits! Also look out for our own special Embarrassing Bodies event – not for the faint hearted!
We’ll also be giving out ‘Speak’ all week– a fantastic booklet produced last year by FemSoc; which contains anonymous submissions about sexual experiences or lack of, and all thoughts on sex….
Ok, so maybe not so sex related but still very important for all you lovely ladies out there! There will be big boobs bouncing around the SU along with even more freebies and food.
