Starting on February 6th and going until February 16th, the University of Chicago will be hosting a sex week full of all sorts of workshops and talks related to sex. This is probably one of the coolest things I’ve seen a college do for its students. Sex education is something that should be focused on more, and this event seems to do it in a really interesting way. The workshops are a great mix of fun and educational. Here are some of the events that I think would be the best to attend.
Jessica Drake will be doing a discussion on her personal story through the adult industry. This has all the makings of a very interesting discussion. Jessica Drake has been a star in the adult industry for a long time, and it’d be really interesting to get her perspective on the need for better modern sex ed. She’s been making quality films for over a decade and has a lot of insight, I’m sure.
The how-to talks
There are going to be a lot of really neat how-to workshops throughout the week including workshops where you can learn to tie up your partner with rope, how to dirty talk, and the art of oral sex. My only hope is that the rope workshop is interactive, and they let people practice on each other. In fact, colleges should probably just start offering a Bondage 101 class for students.
So overall, it’s going to be a great week for the University of Chicago. There’s something for every aspect of sex. You’ll be able to learn about the business side of the adult industry, get tips on actual sex, and hear discussions on some relevant social issues regarding sex and the LBGT community. This obviously isn’t something everyone can attend. But I think it’s important to raise awareness of this sort of thing in the hope that events like this will spread to other colleges and places.
