Sexy Trainers

Macalester is not shy when talking about sexual health and respect. We know a student’s sexual health impacts their overall health and well-being. Our educational approach focuses on enhancing health and safety within relationships of all kinds, increasing access to resources, and facilitating open discussions on our Macalester community value of consent.

For more information about Sexual Respect efforts and resources at Macalester, visit the Sexual Respect webpage.

Sexy Trainers

Every Fall Semester, the Sexy Trainers aim to create a culture of respect by covering the basics of sexual health and consent in the first-year halls: being inclusive of all gender identities and expressions and sexual orientations. We know a large percentage of Mac students are not having sex; but knowledge is important for now, the future, and for helping a friend in need.

Consent@Mac

Consent @ Mac is a program created by students for students, which articulates expectations about sexual respect in the Macalester community. We encourage all students to understand and commit to their rights and responsibilities in their relationships. Look for opportunities to engage with Consent @ Mac around campus and get a free t-shirt!

Request an Anonymous Safer Sex Kit

Products and information are available to help support your healthy sex life. Request an anonymous safer sex kit and choose from a menu of items, including external condoms, internal condoms, lube, and dental dams.

Safer Sex and Relationship Week 2022

Join us for a week of interesting programs, conversations, and the Hunt for the Golden Condom. See the full schedule on the Sexy Trainers Instagram (@Macalester_SexyTrainers).

Hunt for the Golden Condom Spring 2022

The Hunt for the Golden Condom is on! This event will run for five days, from Monday, March 21, through Friday, March 25. We will post the Day One clue in the Mac Daily every day this week. That clue will lead you to a location with a QR Code. Once you find the QR Code, scan it with your phone and follow the instructions. This will give you the next day’s clue. The day’s QR code will be available by 9 a.m. on that day (excluding day 5, the golden condom will be put in place by 7:30 a.m. on Friday!). The first person who finds the golden condom will receive a large bean-bag chair! Second and third place winners will receive Macalester gear.

CLUE ONE: At the place you may visit when you don’t feel well, upon the threshold is where your next clue shall dwell.
