University Plans Class to Help Female Students Achieve Orgasm

by Nathan Harden - Fix Editor on January 29, 2013

Every time we think we’ve seen the most outrageous and debased use of taxpayers’ dollars at a public university, we soon see something even more absurd:

Campus Reform reports:

The University of Minnesota – Twin Cities (UMTC) is set to hold an event this spring designed to help its female undergraduate students achieve more and greater orgasms.

A promotional poster for the event says it is all about “sexuality and pleasure.”

The university’s official online description of the event entitled, “The Female Orgasm,” describes it as open to both male and female students.

“Orgasm aficionados and beginners of all genders are welcome to come learn about everything from multiple orgasms to that mysterious G-spot,” reads the description posted on the school’s official events calendar.

“Whether you want to learn how to have your first orgasm, how to have better ones, or how to help your girlfriend, Kate and Marshall cover it all…” it adds.

“Are you coming?” it asks.

The description of the event, which is hosted by the university’s Office of Diversity and Equity’s Women’s Center, does not say whether there is an age requirement. While the average age of undergraduates at UMTC is 21, it is not uncommon for students to enroll at the age of 17.

A university spokeswoman, Patricia Mattern, however, suggested there is in fact no age requirement in an e-mail statement to Campus Reform on Monday.

“This educational workshop is open to the full university community and participation is voluntary,” she said.  “As a research institution, we study, publish and educate on a vast range of topics, including human sexuality.”

The program is costing the university $3,406 and is part of the university’s mission of “research,” she added…

When will the radical left ever reach a point where they think to themselves, Gee, maybe we’re going too far this time? Will they be conducting live sex in the classroom before long? Actually–now that I think of it–that’s been done already in a class at Northwestern.

Make no mistake, there is a political and moral agenda at work here. These people have no shame, and they are relentless in their quest to corrupt young people. The fact that this is passed off as a legitimate academic pursuit is ludicrous.

    Maybe I’m too new-fashioned, but I don’t see the problem with this. It’s not like this is a political indoctrination class, or one closed to one sex or another. I would expect it to privilege lesbian sex, but there’s a lot of information that is useful and good for women to learn about how their physical responses will differ and what works for them to achieve an orgasm.

    Yeah, Nate, you do some very good work here, but this post strikes me as mindless aggression and false outrage-mongering. This is just an event, not a class, not even a required freshman-orientation thing. And the goal here is a really good one. A lot of women have difficulty achieving orgasm in ways that can detract from the intimacy, closeness, and satisfaction of their relationships with their partners, including spouses. I’m no sexual libertine — consistently monogamous, don’t do hookups, very few partners over my life, want to settle down and get married soon — but I understand that my relationships would not be nearly as intimate, close, and meaningful if my girlfriend couldn’t achieve orgasm during sex, and so that her understanding of her orgasm is very important and not easy to come by. Plus the orgasm is also a scientifically interesting phenomenon — a lot of interesting ideas to unpack in discussing it. It makes sense for this to have a place in a college environment that is supposed to teach about many aspects of life.
