Sex and Sexual Health

 

Our latest Storm Event was at the end of February with our Cardiff group and was held in the Public Health Wales building.  

 

The events theme was Sex and Sexual Health and we had a couple of things happening during the event.  To start Mared and I ran a quiz to see how much people really knew and then showed a informative video about consent called the cuppa tea analogy.  This was followed by 3 people from Cardiff YMCA who talked through all the different safe sex and contraceptive options, allowing everyone a chance to see them all close up.  They also gave everyone the challenge of putting a condom on a model properly. We also had two members of staff from the clinic in Cardiff talking through the process when you visit the clinic.  A really valuable discussion started around accessibility in the clinic’s, we spoke about things like making the signage more accessible, how could we tackle the issue if people can’t see the signs and the possibility of making the forms large print or digital.  

 

Lastly, we were joined by Arielle and her colleague from Promo Cymru who wanted to work with the group to collect feedback on the material that they use ot promote their Meic service.
