Going Out SHEP Style: Authors, condom projects, awards, and more

We recently had our final Sexual Health Education Program (SHEP) seminar of the semester and traditional end of semester potluck. For the past several semesters we have had an aphrodisiac themed potluck with various forms of entertainment from group presentations, games, to talent shows. However, this semester I decided to do things slightly different and invited Danielle Sepulveres, author of Losing It: The Semi-scandalous story of an ex-virgin, to join us. I’ve discussed this book in an earlier article,  Losing It: A look at Cervical Health Through the Eyes of An Ex-Virgin

Though on a book tour she took time to come chat with my SEXperts at UC Berkeley! Danielle shared a  little about the experience that lead her to write a book on being diagnosed Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) cervical cancer form. She also chatted a bit about how life has changed since publishing a personal story and answered questions. The SEXperts were interested specifically in how disclosing a personal matter in such a public way may have changed how her loved ones view her.

Danielle was kind enough to bring along books to giveaway. She decided that the SEXperts who came up with the best Sexy Names (a name alliteration activity that SHEP is well-known for; e.g., Rockstar Robin) for her and a friend she had with her would win the books. The SEXperts came up several great options. Some names were raunchy such as “Dick Me Down Danielle” while others were sweet like “Delicious Danielle.” Sadly, I do not recall which 3 sexy names won.

As part of our traditional potluck we usually hold the SHEPIs, an award ceremony with varying levels of recognition. The students are given the opportunity to recognize their peers for career-based aspirations, personality traits, knowledge and more. The peer-based awards are meant to be fun. As the staff coordinator, I tend to recognize students that stood out for one reason or another. This semester was no exception. SEXpert Jasmine was recognized for being the SEXPert with the most growth, while Lucero was recognized as the most dedicated and responsible SEXpert. Student Leader, Summer, was recognized for being the Student Leader to make the most growth during her time in SHEP. If  that wasn’t exciting enough, this year along with the standard SHEPIs, we also recognized those students who went above and beyond the minimum program requirements to earn the first ever SHEP completion certificates making them official SEXperts. That’s super HOT!

We certainly had an interesting and intriguing year here in the Sexual Health Education Program (SHEP). In addition to having Danielle join us, and presenting the first official SEXpert awards, the SEXperts shared their final Insertive Condom group projects.  This exciting project deserves its own blog article which is coming soon. Until next time…


Keep it safe and sexy,
