Porn star teaches sex seminar at residence halls at the University of Illinois

Porn star teaches sex seminar at the University of Illinois

A University of Illinois residence hall reportedly brought in a former porn star to educate student residents in a week-long sex education seminar.

The program, which began Feb. 3, featured former porn star Annie Sprinkle and ended Thursday with an "orgasm workshop," according to a blog post by campusreform.org.

The program, hosted by resident community Unit One, included speeches by Sprinkle about life as a porn star, a presentation on "Eco-sexology," a free sidewalk sex Clinic, and a screening of "Annie Sprinkle's Amazing World of Orgasm."

The week reportedly involved hands-on, but not nude, participation from University of Illinois students and was funded with student fees paid by residents of the community, the blog reported.

Sprinkle, an internationally known artist, visits colleges around the country to teach sex education and her work is frequently used in educational programs and equal rights campaigns.

This seminar is not the first time she has presented at the university, as she spoke at the school nearly two years ago. But as she expanded her sex talks to the campus' Allen Hall at the end of the week, community members and students had mixed reactions to the racy films and clips, the Daily Illini reported.

I went back in the day when Dr. Ruth gave a lecture at our university.

Quoting lga1965:

 The University of Minnesota is having an "Orgasm Seminar"  too.  LOL.

If I was still a student there, I might go. I bet my friends in the Dorm would go,too. We were a fun group.  :-)

The university is not printing money to put on this filth; funding or parental money is being used.  As a parent, this has no place on a college campus. 

Quoting NWP:

I was just pointing out that no tuition money was used for this.

Quoting TranquilMind:

 I know.  Outrageous tuitions are still supporting such ridiculous and appalling activities. 

College founders would turn over in their graves. 

 

Quoting NWP:

It isn't a course offered through the university.

It is a residence hall seminar, an optional "enrichment" offered through the dorms. Kind of like intramural vs. collegiate sports.

Quoting TranquilMind:

I'm sure a lot of parents are thrilled that their tuition is going to support garbage like this.

Just yuck.  That's truly a disgusting use of time in college.

Why does your opinion as a parent matter? These students are adults.

As a parent? What the hell does that mean? You as a parent have zero control over what happens on a college campus. Why? Because the students attending are adults. What does you as a parent even mean? The people there are over the age of 18. At that age, they get to decide what they want to do, not their parents. Don't like it? Tough. That's all I can say to that. 

Control much?

I wish Annie Sprinkle had shown up to my sexuality classes. 

Now I'm disappointed.

I looked her up. She was big in the 70s. Glad to see she's promoting sexuality and knowledge of how to orgasm (too many people, men included, do not know how to achieve orgasm).

No tuition money is being used for this. It is not a course offered through the university. Tuition money pays for university courses.

Living on campus is a separate expense and not all students choose to do so.

This is a resident hall program, not a university program. Resident halls are a separate fee system. Not all students live on campus and not all of those living on campus would be interested in attending this optional offering. It would be voluntary, not required. Often it is student residence councils (made up of students) who choose which enrichment programs to offer through the residence halls. These offerings are extracurricular and optional, and not funded by tuition money.

And I would also point out that many college students pay their own way without parental help, through a combination of work, loans and scholarships. I know I did. My parents had no say over my program choice or activities on or off campus. I was a self supporting adult, as were the majority of my friends. I only knew one person who was attending on "daddy's credit card". The rest of all my friends were responsible for our own way.

Lol.

You have zero input as a parent when it comes to college and your kids.

Deal with it.



College is for adults. So yeah... This kind of thing is perfectly acceptable on a college campus.
