Sorry for long post - move over vagina monologues and make way for sex week.
At University of Tennessee (which was canceled but is back)
Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church is located just down the street from UT’s campus, and during their services Sunday morning, they’re trying to be the best neighbors they can be.
They’re donating 100 percent of the money collected during the service to help fund Sex Week.
“This is really a faith in action thing for us. The efforts of students at UT to offer that kind of programming is vitally important, and we see it as part of our ministry to support that,” said Youth Religious Education Director Kim Mason, of TVUUC.
By the way, that “vital programming” includes a drag show, campus condom scavenger hunt, sexual poetry tutorial, transgender sexuality lecture, oral sex seminar, sex-themed trivia game, and a lunch hosted by Planned Parenthood called “Sex Ed That Just Can’t Wait.”

(Bristol Palin was scheduled and then canceled)
Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) hosted an event in the school’s main chapel last week aimed at preparing students to pursue careers in pornography.
“Have you ever wondered how to get into the porn industry?” asked an online invite for the event. “Have you ever wanted to see your favorite performers in clothing?”
The event, entitled “A Night With the Stars: Life, Love, and Sex in the Workplace,” was held in the college’s Graham Chapel on Feb. 8. It included presentations from porn superstars Tori Black, James Deen, and Lance Hart.
University of Connecticut Sex Health
The University of Connecticut’s Health Education Office and its peer education group, the Sexperts, fundraised for a non-profit organization each year. For each dollar we had raised in the weeks before the event, we hoped to teach a safer sex skill to a University of Connecticut student. To do so, Health Education decided to host its 4th annual Condom-a-Thon during a Late Night event around World AIDS Day. Over 150 students participated by practicing a safer sex technique- how to put a condom on correctly or cut a condom into a dental dam- and they received an ice cream sundae in return
Many private universities have sex week. Brown University, RI has a sex week but also a nudity week September 30-October 3, 2013.
. It’s not an administration-sponsored event, although Wolinsky and Pacheco-Fores say they have been in communication with the university and have received the school’s support. The events this week include Nude Body Painting; Nude Yoga; Nudity in the Theater (which includes scenes from plays and explores how the meanings change when the actors aren’t wearing clothes); Nude Cabaret; Nude Open Mic Night; and a panel discussing nudity and how it relates to the “isms” such as power, race, class, gender, etc. All events are for Brown students only
Now there are so many of these I can’t list them all. I basically listed only a few of the universities that use taxpayers money. It costs about $20,000 for student activity.
Our tax dollars are at work paying for student activities or through federal dollars as many universities, both public and private, receive federal grants.
