Safer Sex: No ‘Shame’ in Playing Safe

It’s time to give the proverbial “Walk of Shame” – that early morning stroll home in last night’s outfit after an evening of passionate partying – a better name.

The West Hollywood Walk of Shame Bar Crawl on Sunday, April 6, a unique scavenger hunt and bar crawl hosted by collection of West Hollywood bars, offers a fun opportunity to raise safer sex awareness and support a local nonprofit organization.

Proceeds from the five-bar daytime event will benefit AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), which will be offering free HIV/STD testing and free condoms onsite at the bar crawl.

“A ‘one-night stand’ doesn’t have to be shameful – any sexual experience can be fun and carefree when everyone involved shows love to themselves and others by responsibly knowing their HIV and STD status, speaking openly with their partners, and using condoms to prevent any accidental pregnancies or transmissions,” said AHF associate director of Public Health Alexander Goncalvez, who oversees the organization’s testing programs.

Teams of four or more people are encouraged for the bar crawl’s social media scavenger hunt, where participants will get points for missions including taking pictures with AHF advertising, presenting a hand stamp signifying that the participant took a free HIV/STD test, or making a human pyramid (with bonus points if the top person is taking a drink!).
