The UCLA Sex Squad is a collective of undergrads who use life experiences and creative talents to create funny, multimedia theater to open dialogue with teens all over Los Angeles about sex and sexuality. Singers, dancers, actors, poets, musicians, and even people who would never call themselves “artists” collaborate to help make Los Angeles a sexier and safer place.

We’re here to help!

  • Invite us to perform at your school or upcoming event.
  • Learn our techniques in a variety of interactive workshops.
  • Start a Sex Squad of your own at your school.
