    You're basing that on an article that essentially addresses two or three seminars of a WEEK of activities. In my area there little or no 'glofication' of anything. I'm POSITIVE they learned that STDs increase exponentially with the number of partners, the pill doesn't protect against STDs, condoms fail and when they do they also do not protect against STDs, etc.

    The message was more like, "If you decide to have oral sex, this is a list of risks associated with that, and here is how you can protect yourself." And that might have been part of a seminar about how to give oral sex because that's how they got people in the door.

    Look I get your point, but I know a woman who was involved in the local Sex Week, and the organizers and many of the participants had a very serious goal, which was to actually educate students. And they've found the traditional methods of getting information out didn't work, and college students remained ignorant. Sex Week was an attempt by serious people to try a different approach. Had nothing to do actually with encouraging "promiscuity" beyond the simple non-judgmental recognition that 21 year old single people DO HAVE SEX, and WHEN THEY DO, they need to do certain things to prevent pregnancy, STDs, etc.

    I can guarantee you, for instance, that no young man is going to walk into a seminar about "How to get laid while still being a gentleman" with either "safe sex," or even "being a gentleman," anywhere in his mind.
    Maybe not, but if the organizers are doing their job, he'll hear how to have safe sex during the seminar! And they'll be happy they got a method to get otherwise jaded young men in the door and who might have learned something they can use later, WHEN they have sex, not whether...

    You might very well be right, for all I know. While the article does mention some things about the event which would seem to go against what you describe (threeway, oral sex, and bar pickup instructional classes, for instance), this could ultimately turn out to be an attempt to basically trick students into learning something by promising one thing, and delivering another.

    I still maintain that the marketing of the event is somewhat questionable, in any event, however.

    Tell me. How many people die, or are even injured, crossing the street each year?
    Virtually all the people trying to put condoms on while crossing the street. It's a daunting statistic. All those wasted condoms...

    But I thought they were supposed to be 99% effective?!

    Then they should teach their students about condoms, and leave lessons like "how to get laid," "how to negotiate a threesome," and how to give "O-face oral sex" off the lesson plan.

    Yeah, they should be taught that sex is a bad, negative thing

    That always works well

    “Whether it’s how to use lube and condoms to enhance the safety and pleasure of a blow job or how to have … a ‘Safe Sex Elevator Speech’ so you can have a safe and healthy threesome, all of my classes, no matter how outrageous, provocative, or explicit the titles may be teach adults better communication and intimacy skills, offer accurate sexual health information, and do so in a non-fear based and ‘edutaining’ environment,” he said.

    Well, let's look at the record then, shall we?

    Were STDs and unwanted pregnancies more of a problem before the sexual revolution, or after?

    The fact of the matter is that sex is not a game, no matter how much certain people may happen to wish that it was.

    I'm sorry, but "Be wild crazy and sexually freeeee!!!!" followed shortly thereafter by "but make sure you use these horribly inconvenient and expensive things that, quite honestly, kind of make sex suck" really isn't a terribly effective message either, especially when it comes to dealing with reckless demographics who are likely to be blitzed out of their minds when the time comes for sex anyway.

    People tend to take the first part, and forget all about the latter.

    The sexual revolution is over and there are more STD's. We should have kept it going.

    As far as unwanted pregnancies, they are less of a problem now because abortion provides a solution to those who don't want to give birth

    Condoms are expensive?
