UCLA Sex Squad

Videos written and performed by members of the UCLA Sex Squad with the intent of addressing various important sexual health topics.

Created with the belief that laughter and honesty are the best weapons against the silence that permeates difficult topics like STDs/STIs, teen pregnancy, LGBTQ issues, waiting for the right moment to have sex, and many other sexual health concerns in general, these short films were created from personal stories and experiences. The videos can be used in combination with the arts-based workshops in the accompanying PDF viewing guides.
