Safe Sex Express Order Form

What is the Safe Sex Express?

The Safe Sex Express is a program that delivers safer sex supplies and information to Rochester students’ CMC boxes. The program was created by students on the UR Student Health Advisory Committee (URSHAC) in the spring of 2015. Since then the Express has made over 2500 deliveries!

Here are a few things the program strives for:

  • To provide anonymous and cost-free access to safer sex supplies such as condoms, lube, and dental dams.
  • To provide information on topics such as proper condom use, consent, and STI testing.
  • To increase utilization across all Rochester communities, including first year students, LGBTQ+ students, and Eastman School of Music students.

How does it work?

Any Rochester student with a CMC box can place an order using our request form. Options include:

  • External condoms (AKA male condoms)
  • Internal condoms (AKA female condoms)
  • Water-based & silicone-based lubricant
  • Dental dams
  • Finger cots

If our supplies permit, we are also able to fulfill special requests such as latex-free condoms.

Order requests are checked and fulfilled twice weekly. You’ll receive your supplies and sexual health information in a discreet package delivered to your CMC box within 5-7 business days.

Why is this program important?

The need for the Safe Sex Express program is supported by the University of Rochester’s 2022 National College Health Assessment results:

  • In the past 12 months, 45.5% of students have engaged in vaginal intercourse, 55% in oral sex, and 12.4% in anal sex.
  • Of those sexually active students, only about 5% always used protection (condom, dental dam, etc.) during oral sex, and only about 47% during vaginal intercourse.
  • Over 14% of those that reported having vaginal intercourse in the last 12 months indicated that they (or their partner) have used emergency contraception at least once.
