Transcript Let's Talk About sex... and aids Keesa Farber demonstrates to Jennifer Savage junior pre-law and history major, the correct way to put on a condom. Photo by Cesar Alvarez. 146 With a room full of helium filled condoms posing as balloons, and an RA working the banana daiquiri machine, Resident Advisor Reesa Farber hosted Let's Talk About Sex... and AIDS in the Towers Commons to roughly 100 Moody Towers residents and non-resident UH students. After the audience got settled with daiquiris in hand, Farber got down to business. "How many of y'all came to learn and how many came for condoms?," Farber asked. One tentative hand went up, followed by a few reluctant others. Farber made it clear that she wanted a verbal answer. "Yes!," a voice from the crowd shouted. "Yes, what?," Farber asked. "Information or condoms?" The audience seemed to answer simultaneously and unanimously, "Condoms!" With that questioned answered, Farber went on to give the crowd what they wanted. But first, they had to answer another question. "What kind of STDs are out there?," she asked. A few low mumbles could be heard. Someone in the back said herpes. "Oh," Farber said. Then she threw a condom out in the crowd to the person who answered. "What else?" The crowd perked up after that. The audience yelled out STDs and Farber threw Trojan condoms to the people who said gonorrhea, HIV, crabs and HPV. Farber's next question was a little bit trickier. "What do you think the number one STD on campus is?" The crowd, seeking more condoms, responded quicker offering herpes and the clap as answers. Farber gave them the answer but no more Trojans, "It's chlamydia." Someone from the crowd asked what chlamydia was, and Farber had the chance to demonstrate her credentials in the area of sex education. Farber has done AIDS work in Hartford, Connecticut and Houston for five years and has done birth control and STD work for nearly seven years. She explained that chlamydia is a bacteria that can cause sterility if not properly diagnosed. Farber also talked about communication with partners. The crowd had no problem asking partners about their past sexual experiences, but then she asked, "How many people believe it when you partner says, "Oh, I'm fine?" One audience member summed it up for everyone, "Bullshit." Farber was in agreement. She stressed to the students that they had to protect themselves. The topic turned towards the specifics of condoms. Their life span is "three to five years stored properly in a cool, dry place. Not in your wallet and sitting on it." -Rachel E.
