We at Health Education and Promotion (HEP) greatly enjoyed Katelyn Ringrose’s Oct. 10 column on condom history. It was a fun read and quite informative! We appreciate her shout out to the Love Lab, our mobile cart that offers students free safer sex supplies, including 10 free condoms.
HEP would like to reiterate that any student can visit the Love Lab located on the third floor of the Student Health and Wellness Center during the hours HEP is open (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) as well as when the Love Lab is out on campus.
To find out where the Love Lab will be stationed around campus, check out and “like” the “UCD Love Lab” Facebook page to find the schedule and information on our large selection of free products.
We also want to mention that the Love Lab is not just a great place to pick up safer sex supplies. When students stop by the cart they can watch one of our Love Lab volunteers (wearing white coats) demonstrate how to use a male condom, insertive condom and dental dam. Students can even win limited edition buttons when they teach back the proper steps during our Watch It, Teach It, Win It! campaign.
We encourage any students who are sexually active now, or plan to be in the future, to stop by the Love Lab and learn more about ways to protect their own and their partner’s sexual health.
