The things I know

sex-2Bed-2BgamesMy friends and family are trivia geeks of all flavors. From Star Trek to baseball, they do love the details. Trivial Pursuit was one of the most often games played in my house when I was young. I’ll admit to being a sex trivia geek. So a game called Sex Ed Trivia? Sign me up! (This lesson also comes from Game On!)


By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. List two facts about contraception and sexual health care.
  2. Ask a question regarding the various prevention methods.

The Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) says there are many important issues to discuss when addressing sexual and reproductive health. Some topics that are included among these important issues are: contraception, condoms, emergency contraception, health care, and sexuality. Based on a popular game show format, Sex Ed Trivia reviews basic information about hormonal methods, barrier methods, condoms, and sexual health care. It gives the educator an opportunity to reinforce key facts and clarify areas of confusion.


I admit to being partial to the particular popular trivia game that is being spun off of with this game (Jeopardy). It’s a format I use in a number of situations, and people of all ages seem to love and respond to it.

This activity describes creating the activity with paper and poster board, but the same questions and answers can be put into a PowerPoint presentation to make it easier to keep and reuse and to add an element of fun. Descriptions on how to do this in PowerPoint are available here:
