On March 10 from 12 to 3 p.m. in the Concourse Lounge of University College, Professor Markie Twist will be available for a Sex Speak Session. 

The free sessions are frank, one-on-one, question-and-answer talks with a trained sex therapist. The goal of the sessions is to provide safe, confidential, nonjudgmental places to discuss sexual health and sex information.

The individual talks can range from 15 to 45 minutes. Discussion topics may include prevention of sexually transmitted infections, relationship issues, proper use of contraceptive devices, gender identity and more. Anyone may attend, and appointments are not required. Sessions are scheduled on a first come first served basis.

This event is hosted by the Centre for Professional and Applied Ethics at the U of M.
