The Center for Sexual Health Promotion aims to assist MSU students in developing and maintaining skills to make decisions consistent with the students' beliefs and values. We provide accurate information about sexual wellness to assist students with communication and decision making skills which encourage healthy relationships.

Deciding to have sex is a decision many students are faced with. Whether you choose to have sex or not, the decision is always yours. People can abstain from sex for many reasons – even after they’ve been sexually active. Abstinence is a choice that can be made for a lifetime, months, days, or even for a night. It may mean simply waiting until you find the right person to have sex with, or the right time and place.
