The University of New Mexico on Wednesday issued an apology for its inaugural “Sex Week” agenda, which includes workshops such as “How to be a Gentleman and Still Get Laid,” “Negotiating Successful Threesomes,” “O-Face Oral” and “BJs and Beyond” – seminars that prompted concern from some conservative students on campus.
While the apology stopped short of calling Sex Week inappropriate, it acknowledged events on the schedule were too extreme.
“The Women’s Resource Center and the Graduate and Professional Students Association were well intended in creating the workshops billed as ‘Sex Week,'” the statement reads. “However, the initiative did not have clear oversight or close enough supervision to prevent the inclusion of topics that are sensational and controversial. For that UNM apologizes.”
“While the university administration believes that it is important to offer opportunities for sex education to college students, it should be done in a careful and respectful manner,” the statement adds. “We will do a better job in the future of vetting and selecting programs offered through campus groups.”
