We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Whatever you decide you want your relationship with sex to be about, there are opportunities out there. Whether you want to have sex or you don’t, you’re looking for love or a one-night stand, you’re gay or straight or somewhere in between, it’s all possible. And whatever happens remember to be safe, get consent, and watch out for your friends.
Well, OK. What seems odd to me is the college administration selling this. Is selling sexual experimentation part of their job?
Regarding consent, I'd suggest recording it on video on your iPhone, ladies. Make sure the fellow gives you sober consent for you to enjoy his body.
What I don't get is how colleges on the one hand feel they can push the all-sex-all-the-time message to students from the second they enroll, and on the other are shocked at occurrences of date rape and that a woman might be subject to unwanted sexual attention and assault.
Obviously, putting students together in close proximity with the other gender, together with alcohol, drugs and a philosophy of free sex is going to create a very dangerous situation.
But somehow colleges don't seem to be able to see this.
I'm just shocked that they include that "whether you want to have sex, or you don't..." bit. For a school sponsored freshman orientation to say that it is OK to not be sexually active is quite unusual these days.
