Tennessee Lawmakers Condemn UT Sex Week

The Tennessean reports:

Tennessee lawmakers approved another condemnation of Sex Week at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, but even this latest measure may not be the final word on the controversy.

The state Senate passed a resolution 23-6 Thursday morning that criticizes the university for allowing the six-day series of lectures, games and other events meant to promote discussion about sexuality. The resolution also lays out new rules for distributing student activity fees, a portion of which was used to fund the event…

The new rules under consideration could allow students to withhold their mandatory activity fees from funding controversial events.

Legal Insurrection reports some of the details from last year’s Sex Week at UT:

One of the items that the student reporter failed to note was that akey host of the event is porn actress Tristan Taormino. The starlet will hold a Q+A session, a class titled “Get Wet: Exploring the Connections Between Sexual Pleasure, Health, & Advocacy” and another called “We Can’t Stop: Orgasms and Masturbation”. Her body of work includes “Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Bondage for Couples.

As you can see, UT’s Sex Week goes well beyond “promoting discussion about sexuality,” as the Tennessean would have you believe.

Sounds more like they are promoting a very specific sexual agenda–one put forward by the corporate, for-profit sex industry.
