Two Months of Sexploration
Sexploration at IU is a university-led event that gathers student and community organizations to promote a sex-positive attitude and provide an educational experience for students about sexual orientation and gender expression on a personal and cultural level. This is the sixth year the IU Health Center has organized Sexploration events. Previously, Sexploration at IU has lasted one week. This year’s events have been expanded to two months to make more programs available to students throughout the semester. WFHB News Reporter Nash Hott spoke with Patrick Nagal, the chair of Sexploration 2013 and a health educator at the IU Health Center for today’s WFHB News Feature.
