Sexversation Nation Update

Since the launch of Sexversations® on Valentine’s Day 2009, we have been amazed at the warm and enthusiastic response our entertaining educational tool has received—both the program and the products. Sexversations® is actively being used in Resident Halls, Violence Prevention offices, Women’s Centers, by Campus Activity Boards, Peer Educators and Fraternity men and Sorority women. In additional to college campuses, communities and organizations such as the United States Military, County Health Departments and various offices of Planned Parenthood are also using Sexversations®. While this is certainly not an exhaustive list of who is sexversating, it has given us insight to who is actively leading their communities in conversations that will help contribute to a more sexually empowered culture. It is a remarkably exciting time for us as we look for additional opportunities to grow the resources that support the Sexversation® nation (more on that soon)!

Sexversations® program at SEMO
In the past year, we have presented the Sexversations® educational program at such prestigious conferences as the Bacchus and Gamma General Assembly, Sexual Assault in Our Schools National Conference, National Association of Campus Activities National Conference, Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values Central Conference and National Conference for College Women Student Leaders as well as numerous college campuses and military bases throughout the country. The consistent feedback we receive is that the program is getting important conversations started. We have gotten positive comments about the implementation of a text in option during the program. This is an exciting feature that creates a safe (anonymous) space for participants to share their thoughts with the entire audience and it also allows us to capture data from thousands of participants on various issues related to sex, sexual health, relationships and sexual assault. Each campus that hosts Sexversations® receives a post program report with their specific data. We decided to compile all the available data and give you a snapshot of some of the responses we have been given. While this is not inclusive all the information we have acquired it gives you an idea of some of the responses we have received. If you are interested in learning more about our outcomes send an email to us at
