USM to host Condom Fashion Show on Feb. 10

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Student Health Services at The University of Southern Mississippi hopes the unusually titled Condom Fashion Show will do much more than grab people's attention by raising awareness about the dangers of unprotected sex.

The fashion show is part of a special Sex in the Dark event on Feb. 10 from 7-9 p.m. in the R.C. Cook Union Building, Room B. The program will also include a panel discussion by campus officials who will answer questions submitted anonymously about sex and sexual relationships.

"The fashion show is just a fun activity that's edgy enough to get people talking – which is what we want," said Jodi Ryder, health education and promotion coordinator at Southern Miss. "Sex can be an uncomfortable topic and we want to create a fun, relaxed atmosphere to bring awareness to the risks and responsibilities that come with it."

Ryder comments that the fashion show will consist of students modeling outfits they constructed from condoms supplied by Student Health Services and all entries will be decent according to the rules. A cash prize will be awarded to the winner.
