I’m Bondage Brittany and as the quote goes “Not four years, but for life. “ As a member of the Greek Community, it has become incredibly important to me to educate both fraternities and sororities on sexual health.  The result is a drive to reach out to both the PanHellenic and Inter-Fraternity Council groups and helps them fulfill their harm reduction, or risk management requirements.

Berkeley’s Greek community is composed of 33 social fraternities and 14 social sororities and thus the overall community numbers in the thousands. While I acknowledge that I cannot reach every single fraternity or sorority, my main goal in this is to introduce SHEP to the Greek community as a valuable, fun, and reliable method of sex education. Myths and misconceptions tend to run rampant throughout many communities and the Greek community is not an exception.  As a result, it is incredibly valuable for both fraternities and sororities to learn about resources such as SHEP and to make use of them to correct and add to collective knowledge about sex and foster a sex positive environment.

SHEP has approximately six standard workshops ranging from sexual debuts to sexual pleasure. There is no standard route in which I plan to give workshops as each fraternity and sorority has different needs and desires- much like an individual when it comes to sex! It is vital that I can adapt to the needs of my community in order to present each workshop to the best of its ability and to fill and refine Greek understanding of sexual health.  From STIs to sexual assault, it is important that I can tailor to the needs of the Greek system.

Word of mouth is perhaps the most important method of publicizing my workshops to the Greek community. Each individual workshop should be fun and educational in such a manner to encourage the Greek community to open its doors to SHEP and invite it back time and time again. It is furthermore my hope to be able to use chalking, flyers, and social media in order to get information out to the Greek community.

A common epithet for the Greek community is “Letters today, leaders tomorrow” and as such it is important to teach the Greek community to keep it safe and sexy from the dance floor to the bedroom and much more.
