Sex Talks Draws A Passionate Crowd


At University of New Hampshire - and possibly other campuses



Why do you find this surprising or crazy? This is typical of the world we live in.

I’ll tell you something I found almost shocking. When I was in collage, in about the year 1974, the collage showed a movie in the University center, that became an infamous porn movie. The biggest shock was how many female students were there. They did something to the film that changed the colors of the actual sex scenes. But I didn’t think such a movie should have been shown at all. This is why I said this event you mentioned is typical of the world we made. But I agree that a collage shouldn’t have done the event you mentioned nor the movie mine did in 1974.


There was a time when people knew how to have an orgasm without attending a seminar. I’m curious as to what the rest of this “sexual health” month entailed.


At my undergraduate university, there’s an annual talk on female orgasm every September that draws about 400 women and about 40 men every year. They have more moral conventions too, but they try to let every position be represented, including the sex-positive people. I’m not actually opposed to the female orgasm one at my school (it’s done fairly classily and if a married couple went to it or a single person wishing to know for when they were married, I’d see no problem). But the UNH one seems like it was done much more lewdly, which is unfortunate.


One of the few things it seems our secular culture is solely concerned about.
