Monday | February 16 | 6-8pm

Remember that awkward conversation you had with family when you were a younger about "the birds and the bees"? Do you remember anything they taught you? Are you informed about STDS and safe sex? If you've answered no to any of these questions, then come to Behind Closed Doors, a not so typical dialogue on safe sex from our UCSD Sexual Health Advocates, and a visit from Lea Caughlan from the Rubber Rose. A Q&A will be held if anyone has questions, so come get informed and learn more than just the "birds and the bees." Questions? Contact Jeannette at jnetperez@gmail.com.
