Goal: Help clients understand the consequences and benefits of their actions related to safe sex.

Directions:
Assuming there is 5 participants:
1. Before the activity print  the activity cards below, fold them in half and tape them shut so participants don't know what's on their cards until the end.
2. Every participant gets an envelope. They may not open anything in the envelope. Each envelope has the participants profile, 5 cards and 10 tokens.
3. Instruct every participant to trade all of their cards with someone else. Participants must trade all of their cards.
4. When the trading is over the participants will be told that trading cards represented sexual interactions and they need to look at what cards they have to see the consequences of their actions and cash in tokens based on what their cards say. Participants must follow the directions on each card for if they need to cash in tokens or not.
