University Of Minnesota To Host ‘Female Orgasm’ Event
University of Minnesota students will soon be invited to an education seminar that delves into much deeper issues than college algebra or biomedical science. The symposium, dedicated to the female orgasm, will teach attendees “everything from multiple orgasms to that mysterious G-spot,” according to a description posted on the school’s official events calendar.
Hosted by the university’s Office of Diversity and Equity’s Women’s Center, almost $3,500 has been spent on the event, which is open to male and female students of all ages.
Sex educators Marshall Miller and Kate Weinberg will host the event and “use a mixture of interactive activities, multimedia, funny stories, and question and answer.” According to the university’s Web site, the instructors will teach participants how to have their first orgasms, achieve better ones or help their partners reach the big-O.
The Female Orgasm Program will also include:
• An emphasis on making proper personal sexual decisions
• Analysis of messages women receive about their sexuality from sources such as media, religion and families
• Body image’s role in experiencing physical pleasure
• Small-group open forums to discuss sexuality and issues related to the female orgasm
“This educational workshop is open to the full university community and participation is voluntary,” said university spokeswoman Patricia Mattern. “As a research institution, we study, publish and educate on a vast range of topics, including human sexuality.”
The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. April 10 at the Theater St. Paul Student Center.
