Healthyhorns 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:
External condoms, internal condoms and dental dams reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
External condoms and internal condoms also prevent pregnancy. Use a protective barrier every time you have oral, anal or vaginal sex.
Know where to get condoms and how to use them correctly.
Choose a birth control method that works for you and your partner(s).
Get the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to protect you from genital warts and cancer.
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 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 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.
If you are sexually active, you should also get tested for STIs regularly and make sure you get yourself tested before you become sexually active with a new partner. At UHS, you can get easy, confidential STI testing.
