Public univ plans event to help female students achieve orgasm
The University of Minnesota - Twin Cities (UMTC) is set to hold an event this spring designed to help its female undergraduate students achieve more and greater orgasms.
The university’s official online description of the event entitled, “The Female Orgasm,” describes it as open to both male and female students.
“Orgasm aficionados and beginners of all genders are welcome to come learn about everything from multiple orgasms to that mysterious G-spot,” reads thedescription posted on the school’s official events calendar.
“Whether you want to learn how to have your first orgasm, how to have better ones, or how to help you girlfriend, Kate and Marshall cover it all…” it adds.
“Are you coming?” it asks.
The description of the event, which is hosted by the university’s Office of Diversity and Equity's Women's Center, does not say whether there is an age requirement. While the average age of undergraduates at UMTC is 21, it is not uncommon for students to enroll at the age of 17.
A university spokeswoman, Patricia Mattern, however, suggested there is in fact no age requirement in an e-mail statement to Campus Reform on Monday.
“This educational workshop is open to the full university community and participation is voluntary,” she said. “As a research institution, we study, publish and educate on a vast range of topics, including human sexuality.”
The program is costing the university $3,406 and is part of the university’s mission of “research,” she added.
The event is to be taught by “sex educators” Marshall Miller and Kate Weinberg. Miller and Weinberg have conducted similar programs at other universities from across the country.
Their website states their programs “use a mixture of interactive activities, lecture, discussion, multimedia, funny stories, and question and answer.”
“Nothing embarrasses us, and no topic is too basic or risqué,” it adds.
Miller previously told Yahoo News about how “amazing” it would have been to “be a fly on the White House bedroom wall during the JFK presidency” and watch the president engage in sexual escapades.
