'Sexpert' Jay Friedman will speak during AIDS Awareness Week

Among numerous events scheduled during the University's third annual AIDS Awareness Week, Feb. 1-9, is a free, public lecture by "sexpert" Jay Friedman at 8 p.m. Mon. (Feb. 3) in the University Club, first floor, Michigan Union.

Friedman will offer his insights on love, sex and dating in a humorous multi-media event. "My sex-positive message helps people avoid problems like AIDS, unintended pregnancy and date rape---and instead begin to enjoy sexuality as a natural and healthy part of their lives," says Friedman, a sex educator certified by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists.
