Sexual Health
Promoting safer sex education and practices

The Women's Center and the LGBTQA+ Center are the distributors of safer sex supplies on UNL campus. We are interested in educating the UNL community on safer sex practices.


Sexual Health & Resource Kits

3 condoms and 1 lube packet are included in our kits (latex free kits are available at all distribution points)

Dental Dams (available in the Women's Center upon request)
A dental dam is a 6-inch, square sheet used as a barrier for oral sex, vaginally and anally, to help reduce the transmission of bodily fluids, germs, and sexually transmitted infections. If you do not have a dental dam available, you can use non-microwavable plastic wrap. Similarly, you can use a condom by cutting off the tip, cutting it open down one side, and opening the condom flat. Dental dams or substitutes should be disposed of after use and never reused.

Internal Condoms (available in the Women's Center upon request)
An internal condom is similar to a male condom except that it is worn on the inside. It is a pouch that is placed inside the vagina or anus before sex to protect against STIs.

Consent means actively agreeing to be sexual with someone. Consent lets someone know that sex is wanted. Sexual activity without consent is rape or sexual assault.
