College Degrees With a Little Venereal Disease

 

It sounds like The University of Toronto mistook Sex & God at Yale as an educator’s handbook:

The University of Toronto’s sexual education center will kick off its annual Sexual Awareness Week next week at “a downtown club that bills itself as a water-themed adult playground, where swingers are welcome and sex is allowed everywhere but the hot tub.”

… The article goes on to note the club where the kick off event will take place boasts “easy-to-clean surfaces, with sanitizing wipes (and) baskets of condoms.”

More details on U of T’s sponsored student orgy here.

But really, would anyone reading this have the courage to get in that hot tub?

    Those poor folks at U of T; setting aside a ‘week’ FOR Sexual Awareness! Things must have changed—when I was in college I was aware of it for at least 52 weeks a year…

    How tolerant of the University. I wonder if that tolerance extends to Christians and Conservatives.

    An annual Sexual Awareness Week?

    That alone has me howling with laughter. People get paid for this?

    Yes, it reeks of the desperation I remember from The Children of Men. Sometimes I wonder if P.D. James will be alive for the last birth.

    I simply can’t imagine why college graduates can’t find jobs these days.

    That would mean Viagra is a way of raising awareness.

    First of all, barf.

    Second of all, triple-barf.

    I hold not one but two degrees from this august institution, and am now wondering about the reception I will get the next time I show my resume to a potential employer. Yippee. 

    Fun fact: when checking in at the U of T student health center, there are five (5!) checkboxes to choose from under the heading “gender.” (Male, female, transgender, transsexual, and something I’ve since forgotten/repressed.) At least, there were five last time I was there. Perhaps they have invented more; they have had a few years to work on it.

    I believe the fifth box is TBD which means either To Be Determined or To Be Disinfected.

    Hey I went to U of T too. Loved it.

    Hot tubs? Getting soft up there these days… Get enough Molson’s and it wouldn’t make a difference

    Amid all this “non-judgment”…I wonder how the happy participants with their “raised awarenesses” (sorry, even at 58 I’m not mature enough yet) would respond to someone who, as a Free Spirit, decides to remain clothed after the 7PM deadline?

    Will they call the cops? Will they have him/her thrown out? Will they say “Good for you”?

    I am quite concerned about this potential Socially Awkward Moment…

    One of my favorite interactions with trans politics was having a transman friend of mine complain that he felt excluded by the Canadian arts funding body’s restriction of gender to, I believe, 7 options. He wanted a write-in option as he, very seriously and intensely, wanted to put down “banana”, which was how he felt he could best describe his gender at that moment.

    I enjoyed my summer course at UT, but do not recall being any more or less aware of sex than usual. I can report that I had no sex in hot tubs, so some things remain the same.
