Just some fun little activities you may or may not encounter during your time at Queen’s or elsewhere. If you do or don’t, either way you might have some burning questions.

There is also a very detailed Sexual Health page that provides students with information about anything sex. If you are curious or interested in anything related to sex, I highly recommended taking at least a glance at the information provided, and then ask away any other questions.
