Sexual Health

RGU:Union works to provide support and advice to students, and one way we do that is through our 'SHAG' campaign. SHAG stands for Sexual Health Awareness and Guidance, like it says on the label, it’s a week in which RGU:Union gets all rude and raunchy taking about Sexual Health, Sexuality and Sex Safety! We know that being away from home for the first time and getting to meet lots of new people is great fun, but it’s important that students understand the importance of sex.

Sex can have a major effect on a person’s emotional and physical wellbeing. The Union has welfare as one of our priorities, so our SHAG campign not only encourages a fun social atmosphere, but it is to also highlight and protect the students of RGU too.  Each year, we run a number of campaigns and events to celebrate sex as well as promoting safe sex! 

Free Condom Service

The first step to safe sex is protection! RGU:Union wants to make sure all students are safe and protected. We run a free condom service at our RGU:Union Office on Union Way! We have all regular, trim and even king size, as well as femidoms and lube for all the naughty fun you can handle! If you want condoms, just pop by the office and ask at reception, or you can get an order made up, just click here to e-mail your order. 

Consent

As well as looking after your own sexual health, it is vital that all sexually-active people understand consent in sexual relations. If you have any doubts about what consent is and why it's important, the below video can help clarify this:
