This presentation covers the basics of how various drugs work in the human body, short and long-term effects of lesser known drugs ranging from tobacco to cocaine to LSD and more, and how students can help to create a safer, drug-free community.

- Intuitive Eating: Wondering what is the key to both confidence and well-being? It's listening to your body and dieting keeps you from living a life based on internal cues and forces you to follow external rules and regulations. Intuitive eating focuses on nurturing your body not depriving it, encourages you to honor your hunger, feel your fullness, explore food satisfaction and discover the weight your body is meant to be. This presentation teaches you the principals of intuitive eating and helps you develop a positive relationship with food, eating and your body.
- Things You Should Know About Nutrition & Body Image: Wondering about it the freshman 15 is real? If carbs will make you fat? This presentation dispels some of the more common nutrition myths, gives a brief overview on intuitive and mindful eating and addresses FSU students' biggest concern-their bodies.

This fun presentation covers safer sex techniques and products, consent, campus sexual health resources, and statistics on FSU students’ sexual behavior.
- Hookup Culture: This interactive presentation looks at national, generational, and FSU campus trends on dating, sex, and hookups. Are Millennials and Z’s really living in a "hookup culture"? We also explore what research tells us about consent, pleasure, and safety during hookups.

- Hooray for the Vajajay: In this fun presentation we explore the vulva. We look at how the vulva is portrayed in culture, art, symbolism, architecture, and pornography. We also explore women's relationship with their vulva. Research shows that the majority of women have never looked at their vulva, feel uncomfortable touching their own vulva, and know very little about their clitoris. With the rise of porn, new vulva expectations have risen that favor unrealistic standards that do not reflect normal diversity, leading to more vulva insecurity. This presentation attempts to overcome that insecurity by focusing on vulva diversity, clitoral orgasm, vulva health, masturbation, and sex toys.
- The Lie of Virginity: Did you know that most college students have never had a sexual experience prior to coming to college?

We also discuss how to make sexual experiences pleasurable (even the first time), as well as other important topics such as consent, safer sex techniques, and resources for sexual health on campus.
- Sex, Gender, and Sexuality: Often students see college as an opportunity to explore their identity and "find themselves". In this presentation we explore the differences between sex, gender, and sexual identity. Students are given the tools and the opportunity to reflect on their experiences, explore their own identity, and find support here at FSU.
- "Does Size Matter?": How we feel about our bodies can have a big impact on our relationships and sexual experiences. This presentation explores the connection between body image and sexuality. Together we will break down myths surrounding size, shape, & sensuality, and learn how to feel better about our bodies.
