Sex@Iowa is a sexual health blog published during the fall and spring semesters in which two University of Iowa Student Health physicians, Ann Laros, M.D. and Eric Evans, M.D. will answer questions from UI students. Questions used are selected from those submitted by UI students to the Student Health web site and from questions asked during campus presentations by Drs. Laros and Evans.

Do not read this if you are offended by open talk of a sexual nature.

Sex@Iowa does not provide medical advice, diagnoses or treatment. This information is not meant to replace medical care and advice from your own healthcare provider.

Prevent sexual assault with phone app?

We like this!  

Great use of existing technology to keep you safe.

Check out this Android and iPhone app:




 It’s called “Circle of 6″ and is a way to use your cell phone as a safety device, safety net and emergency response unit. 


Here is a description of this app from “Circle of 6″ website:

Circle of 6 is more than a safety App: it’s a community and a state of mind. It fosters the formation of groups based on trust and accountability and promotes a culture of care, where friends look out for one another and work together to eliminate violence in their communities. Ideally, all of your friends will be part of this culture whether or not you program them into our app.


This FREE smart phone application is available for free through the Apple app store/iTunes or Google Play store:
