Healthyhorns Play It Safe

University Health Services educates students about healthy sexuality. We empower you to make decisions that keep you safe, healthy, and successful, including the choice not to have sex. If you choose to be sexually active, playing it safe means:

how to use condoms correctly


Use condoms every time you have oral, anal, or vaginal sex. Know where to get condoms and how to use them correctly. Condoms are the only contraceptive method that also protects you from sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Get Free or Low-Cost Condoms
birth control methods


Choose a birth control method that works for you and your partner(s).
human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine


Get the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to protect you from genital warts and cancer.
Talk with your partner(s) about healthy sexuality


Talk with your partner(s) about healthy sexuality, including STI testing, pregnancy prevention, and consent. Learn how to build and maintain a healthy relationship.
avoid alcohola and drugs before sex


Avoid using alcohol and drugs before having sex. If you use alcohol and drugs, you are more likely to take risks, like not using a condom. Plus, you are less able to give and receive consent.
Keep learning about what you can do to take care of your sexual health


Keep learning about what you can do to take care of your sexual health with one of our interactive workshops. All workshops are taught by our Longhorn Wellness Peer Educators and are available to all UT students—all you have to do is get a few friends together and pick a time and place.

For more information about healthy sexuality and relationships, please explore the healthy sexuality links on this page.
