Hey Broncos! my name is Abby and my name is Maddy. We are here with Bronco fit which is the Student Wellness Department. Maddy and I are Peer Health Educators with broncofit our role is promoting wellness to students, staff, and faculty, through the eight Dimensions of Wellness. You are watching this video today because you have requested to use our condom cart follow along for a quick intro to see what supplies are available for your event. We keep our awesome cart stocked up for student needs across campus and are thrilled that you have reserved it. On the top shelf we have external or male condoms, and on the second shelf we have latex free and large size condoms, as well as personal water-based lubricant and dental dams. Hi all, my name is Kenzie Campbell (she/her/hers), and I’m a health educator staff member with the office of Broncofit. My focus area is on sexual health and healthy relationships. There are a few key points we like to share with students when it comes to sexual health, and to ensure that we are all using a shared language across campus, we want to cover these topics with you today. We hope that you are able to share this information with your students when they come to access the condom cart. First is consent. Consent is always the first step to all sexual activity. There are legal definitions of consent, but really consent is all about communicating and respecting boundaries, and checking in if something isn’t clear. At broncofit we use the framework called fries for consent. Abby do you know what fries is? Yeah I love french fries! No silly, I mean fries and consent. Maddy can tell us more. Yeah! Other than a delicious treat, fries is actually an acronym to remember the key features of consent. We’ll start with F: F stands for freely given. Everyone feels safe and comfortable to consent and consent is given without the use of pressure intimidation or coercion. R stands for reversible. Anyone can change their mind at any time for any given reason, even if it is something that you have already agreed to before. I stands for informed. So that everyone has the information that they need to make the correct decision for themselves. You can only consent to something if you have the full story. So like, for example if somebody says that they’ll use a condom but then they don’t? Correct; that is not full consent. Next is E for enthusiastic. When it comes to sex, you should only consent to the things that you want to do not things that you feel like you’re expected to do. And lastly, is S for specific. Saying yes to one thing, like making out, doesn’t mean that you’ve said yes to other things like having sex. Oh, that makes sense! Now we’re going to chat about sexually transmitted infections, or STIs. You may have also heard the term sexually transmitted diseases or STDs. These terms are both referring to bacteria, a virus or parasite that is passed on through sexual activity via skin to skin contact, or exchange of bodily fluids. Examples include chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HPV. Most STIs do not have signs or symptoms. The only way to know for sure if you have an STI is to get tested. Oh, I’m young so I don’t need to worry about getting tested for STIs. Actually, STIs are very common – in fact, one in two sexually active people will contract an STI by the age of 25. Despite being so common, there is still a lot of stigma around STIs. Even the way we ask about STI status; Asking if someone is “clean” or “dirty”, can lead to stigma. Our first goal is to prevent but we also want folks to know that if you take the proper steps, and work with the healthcare provider, you can still lead a healthy and happy sex life – even with an STI. Next, let’s talk about barrier methods. Barrier methods are a type of birth control that blocks the meeting of egg and sperm, or block skin to skin contact with a physical barrier. External condoms, internal condoms, and dental dams fall into this category. These are the only three methods of birth control that can also prevent STIs. Here are some quick tips about using these barrier methods for you to share with your students. Here we have all of our barrier methods that are available to students on the condom cart: right here we have a male or external condom, here we have a female or internal condom, and here we have dental dams! So there are a few important things to remember with each of these barrier methods: the first is that you should always be establishing consent as a first step, some other things to remember is that these barrier methods all need to be stored properly, you’ll want to be checking for expiration dates and making sure that there’s no damage to the package, and then after use just remember that these are not reusable. You need to throw them in the trash and they may not be flushed down the toilet.

All of these methods are typically latex. When using latex products, you can use personal lubricant to increase pleasure. However the lube you use must be water-based, as alternatives can break down the materials in the barrier methods, and make them less effective. All of the lubricant available to you on the condom cart is water-based, so you don’t have to worry about that.
