    Communication is key to finding more pleasure in sex. And pleasurable sex can be vital to ensuring that people build strong relationships. In addition, these seminars include information about the difference between a respectful sexual relationship and abusive or at least unhealthy sexual relationships. This is about building many different aspects of sex. There is absolutely nothing wrong with learning how to make sex pleasurable. It does not encourage more promiscuous sex. In fact, it can easily be said to encourage less promiscuous sex since if a young person is finding sexual satisfaction in one or just a few people, then they don't need to sleep around. This might not apply to all, but it likely would apply to many college students.
    No, it's not the only thing that the Romans did that caused their fall, but the hedonism and corruption that became pervasive in their society certainly had something to do with it.

    According to Gibbon, the Roman Empire succumbed to barbarian invasions in large part due to the gradual loss of civic virtue among its citizens.[9] They had become weak, outsourcing their duties to defend their Empire to barbarian mercenaries, who then became so numerous and ingrained that they were able to take over the Empire. Romans, he believed, had become effeminate, unwilling to live a tougher, "manly" military lifestyle. In addition, Gibbon argued that Christianity created a belief that a better life existed after death, which fostered an indifference to the present among Roman citizens, thus sapping their desire to sacrifice for the Empire.
    The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    civic virtue defined:

    Civic virtue is the cultivation of habits of personal living that are claimed to be important for the success of the community. The identification of the character traits that constitute civic virtue have been a major concern of political philosophy. The term civility refers to behavior between persons and groups that conforms to a social mode (that is, in accordance with the civil society), as itself being a foundational principle of society and law.
    Civic virtue - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hard to focus on maintaining your empire if, in the forefront of your mind and focus, is on intoxication, debauchery, promiscuity, and orgies.

    I'd say that western civilization, with it's permissive sexual revolution going on, it's focus on 'Me, Me, Me', is on a similar trajectory. It would appear that the Islamic fundamentalists think so, and are trying to take advantage of it.

    These students have no real clue what any of these lectures/seminars are about. They are repeating the lies they have been fed by pundits that talking about how pleasurable sex can be automatically leads to people, especially young people, being unsafe and/or irresponsible about sex, even if what they are learning includes information about being responsible and safe when it comes to sexual encounters.

    Not all students will agree with things. And that's fine. But these students' opinions about these are not more important than students who would want to go to these lectures/seminars. They are just as ignorant, and I would say even more so, since they are ignoring anything that does not agree with their view on this, about what the content of these seminars really is.
    I don't think the comments that I highlighted were saying that 'Sex is bad'. They were saying that the whole things was inappropriate for a publicly funded college venue.

    I think that you are belittling their valid concerns and opinions because they differ with your own.

    Liberal academia is such a wholesome and productive way to prepare yourself for a career nowdays.

    Where do I sign my daughters up for this?!

    No, it isn't inappropriate to be taught in a manner that is completely voluntary and actually is likely to reduce things like drunken hookups, date rapes, possibly unwanted pregnancies and STDs, and might even improve relationships on campus, which are all things that benefit the academic environment, even if they only happen a little.

    I feel that their concerns are not valid at all. They are making assumptions based off of their ideology. If they had proof/evidence that these seminars were encouraging actual unhealthy sexual behavior, then I would consider their complaints. But since they are basing their complaints off of the titles of the seminars and their assumptions, then they don't get more consideration.

    Of course not.

    Seems like there a lot of that going on in this forum.

    Of course not. So much for tolerance of differing opinions. Standard response: 'Quash it!'

    I'm not saying that those students who oppose such things shouldn't be allowed to do so, and even protest or share those feelings. However, they also shouldn't automatically be considered valid concerns worthy of action just because they have "concerns" or feel as they do. They need valid reasoning.

    Is this course about actually being able to successfully arrange a threesome or actually having it be fun?

    There is really no evidence to support this whatsoever. It is simply what you have read into course, combined with your completely subjective ideological opinion of what "healthy sex and relationships" should look like.

    Frankly, where your first assertion is concerned, the course titles and general tone in which the subject is being approached suggests exactly the opposite, in point of fact.

    The school is misappropriating public funds to advocate partisan political ideologies and promote deviant, and often dangerous, sexual behavior among its student body.

    Is that not "valid" reason enough to oppose it?

    Should the Rastafarians be able to host a "Ganja Week" touting the wonders of Marijuana next?

    Would that "benefit the academic environment" as well?

    Of course the measure of what 'valid reasoning' is or is not, would lie with someone as yourself? Got it.
