Sexploration: Promoting Safe, Responsible Sexual and Reproductive Health

IUHC Sexploration Logo

Mission statement

Sexploration explores, engages, and challenges sexual norms within individuals, between partners, and among society through diverse and inclusive programming and outreach efforts on the Indiana University Bloomington campus and in the Bloomington community.

Description

Sexploration is housed in the Indiana University Health Center, Department of Health and Wellness offices. We work closely in collaboration with the Sexual Health Advocacy Group (SHAG), a student-run organization, to promote safe and responsible sexual and reproductive health in the culturally diverse student body of Indiana University and the Bloomington community. We are a part of a collaboration of student groups, and community and professional organizations that create and sponsor events which explore, engage, and challenge sexual norms. We promote the acceptance of the ubiquitous and diverse nature of sexuality through education and entertainment that tests the simple and complex qualities of sexuality.

Goals

  • To promote the exploration of topics in sexuality through education, experience, and engagement.
  • To foster a safe and inclusive environment which allows for the open discussion of sexuality.
