Sex Week vs. True Love Twue Wove Week, otherwise known as the loose free for all's against the prudes sparks debate on Yale campus

I misread the headline as "Star Trek week, ..." which probably disqualifies me from either one. Back to the basement.

Why would Yale have to have a week to explain sex to the students? A 1/2 hour on YouPorn and they would learn all they need.
Take sex out of school and put it back in the gutter where most Farkers learned about it.

Sex Week is going to get True Love Week drunk, have his way with her, then never call.

FTA: The week is billed as a way to promote sexual health though a series of events and workshops.

Events? Workshops? Count me in!

You know, it sounds prudish and lame, but college students seem to have, in general, figured out f*cking. They do need help at avoiding STIs and unintentional pregnancy, sure, and I'm all for rigorous sexual education.

However, people do not come out of school, college, whatever, intrinsically knowledgeable of starting, growing, and maintaining relationships. How many people have you met that as an engaged couple or newlyweds couldn't even bring up their problems, financial plans, desires about children, etc? You hear people lament the boredom of marriage, the pain of divorce, the isolation of single parenthood... and yet where does all that come from?

People don't know how to actually build loving relationships beyond infatuation. I'm not going to snicker at the "true love week" folks for no reason... it is a worthy goal. Just don't ignore the problem of STIs, dating violence, unwanted pregnancy, etc...

You'll likely get divorced from anyone you married from college. Enjoy yourself. You can't do college twice.

It depends on if they're attending. Once all the students are coming, they can all start learning.

From the comments:

Timothy Larkin · University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
The professors are not leading the students. In many cases, the professors encourage amorality. If I were the chancellor, I would abolish all such clubs. I would then have a campus-wide Bible reading. I would then discipline or kick out any students that protested.

Not necessarily. I debated for a few years. The "masters" were usually dicks. Of course, they practiced debating a lot.

I'm not saying I didn't, but I pursued other interests so I wouldn't have to debate, if you know what I mean.

I can explain true love in college in a lot shorter than a week, it's more like a couple sentences:

If you're in college and thing you've found true love, you're an idiot. GTFO and GBTW, loser.

//If you're still in the relationship and still happy with it a decade after you've both entered the work force, then you may start, tentatively, using that word in anything but ironic context.

Rapmaster2000: You'll likely get divorced from anyone you married from college. Enjoy yourself. You can't do college twice.


There's no evidence to support this claim. In fact, college educated people have a lower divorce rate than the general population. Educated people who wait until they are a bit older to marry have the lowest divorce rate. And you are far more likely to meet the right person in college than afterward. This is why so many people have difficulty finding a spouse after they get out into the "real world." All of the couples I know who I know will never divorce met in college.

Consider, too, that you never make friends like the ones you make in college or before. So, you are dead-on right that you only go to college once and you need to make the most of it. It is a time when we are free of most parental encumbrances and have the freedom to explore ourselves and find our own path through life. It really isn't the time for "true love." But if you do meet Mr. or Mrs Right, have fun with them, too, and worry about "the relationship" later.

Free for all works better for some, prudishness works better for others. Sometimes what works best changes in the course of a person's lifetime, and can go either way.

Not sure why this is hard to figure out.

So... the vast majority of the university vs. a cowardly, thinly veiled evangelical propaganda group.

How can you respect a group that feels the need to lie by omission about its religious underpinnings? In reality, this group is probably like the other tiny evangelical/conservative college groups at Yale - a bunch of stuffy weirdo prudes in bow ties preying upon socially isolated Asian students who are looking for acceptance and a social outlet.

This will have about as much impact at Yale as a McDonald's career fair.

My guess is not many guys get casual sex so it would be the half dozen or so of the richest, tallest guys on campus. A few jocks. And the 80% of female students who want to hook up with them hoping to get pregnant showing up at the Sex Week event and getting any.

The true love people are pretty much the sour grapes crowd who wish they belonged the the first crowd.

Funny you should mention that. It may actually be something she's taking. Hormonal supplements and other medications that screw with brian chemistry can have that as a symptom.

For example, Mrs. Argh lost her libido to a particular type of BC back in the day (Yaz IIRC). The difficulty is getting someone whose libido is low to admit it and finding a doctor who will treat it as an actual issue.

Sure, you're right on education, but I don't see how that has anything to do with the marriage success rate of college educated people who married someone they met in college vs. college educated people who married someone they didn't meet in college.

If you told me the sky was blue you'd be right, but it wouldn't tell me whether or not I should get married to someone I met in college.

// Wish there was a pill or something for her to take.. :(

Funny you should mention that. It may actually be something she's taking. Hormonal supplements and other medications that screw with brian chemistry can have that as a symptom.

For example, Mrs. Argh lost her libido to a particular type of BC back in the day (Yaz IIRC). The difficulty is getting someone whose libido is low to admit it and finding a doctor who will treat it as an actual issue.


Actually, funny you should mention it.... my wife admits she has a low libido (now), but just doesn't care. I've asked her to see a doctor about it, and she just said it's something she's got to deal with. She says it's just the Prozac and her age, but she was on Prozac when we met, and it didn't stop her from wanting it almost as much as me. Hell, for awhile, she almost had me convinced that the problem was my drive is too high. I've realized her problem is she just doesn't care.

Yeah, except I'VE got to deal with it. I have just basically quit even trying. I figure if I just take care of myself, then the rare occasion she's in the mood is a bonus. It wasn't always like this, and I am just done with asking her what's wrong, trying to improve things... The old adage is true - men have sex to feel close emotionally, women have sex when they feel close emotionally.

I told her I think we need a date night; one night when we go eat (even jack in the box is fine, hell, it's about the person), catch a movie, walk the mall, something, just the two of us for a few hours. She said last night that she thinks she needs to be courted. I want to be treated more like a husband than a freakin' meal ticket.

Do that. Anything worth doing is worth the effort. Time together without other commitments looming never hurts.

Until we narrowed it down to a medication effect we were down from several times a week to twice a month if I didn't nag for it. I started to run the Internet out of free porn by the end of that six months. She also had to switch doctors three times to find one who considered dead libido as a symptom. Difficulty, that doctor turned out to be a shiatty OB who delivers only at a shiatty hospital. That only became clear way too late. That's also off topic...

I don't understand this. My husband was always more interested in sex than I was. But even if I wasn't 'in the mood' I would try to participate with as much enthusiasm as I could muster. You don't have to be excited about it to do it well and enjoy the outcome.

not_an_indigo: This is different from any other college...how?

/hated the Campus Crusade do-gooders.


At least as far back as 1997, when I was a freshman in Pierson College at Yale (one of the residential colleges, basically a dorm), Yale has had a notoriously lax attitude toward vices like underage drinking, promiscuity and drug use even while other, more square university administrations have cracked down on the same. Copious booze (sometimes provided by the University with a wink and a smile) and an atmosphere of sexual freedom have been the norm for years and years.

Unfortunately, a number of high profile incidents including a fraternity's public jokes about rape and the alleged exploits of Yale's alleged rapist star quarterback have, depending on your perspective, 1) cast light on serious problems with sexual misconduct at the university or 2) shown why we can't have nice things. Now the university, which is currently under investigation and defending a Title IX lawsuit for creating a hostile sexual environment, is skittish about anything public having to do with sex.

In this atmosphere, a group of seven self-righteous prudes (you know the type) are trying to create a movement around tightening up Yale's allegedly libertine sexual attitudes. They're inviting a bunch of lunatic Catholic and evangelical speakers to talk about how awesome it is to not be gay and to get married early so that you can have sex within the context of a Christian marriage, and how pornography, fornication, abortion and birth control are destroying Western civilization.

Meanwhile, the local NBC affiliate has a story creating a lame false controversy between a popular decade-old student seminar series about sexual health topics and this seven-prude AW fest.

Wasn't gonna comment, but had to here with a big THIS.

My bf and I pretty much match on the whole sex drive thing. But even on days when I am tired from work or having a spell of "just not feeling like it" or "not in the mood", I always give it a go and at least try to be into it. And usually by the end I AM into it and totally glad I gave it the effort. I also know there's been times when he's tired and I lure him to bed - and of course within ten seconds he's standing at attention and ready to go. There's some give and take on both sides. Either try to give it go (you will probably love it by the end) OR if he/she really does have a splitting headache, letting it go til tomorrow night.

JackieRabbit: There's no evidence to support this claim. In fact, college educated people have a lower divorce rate than the general population. Educated people who wait until they are a bit older to marry have the lowest divorce rate. And you are far more likely to meet the right person in college than afterward. This is why so many people have difficulty finding a spouse after they get out into the "real world." All of the couples I know who I know will never divorce met in college.

Consider, too, that you never make friends like the ones you make in college or before. So, you are dead-on right that you only go to college once and you need to make the most of it. It is a time when we are free of most parental encumbrances and have the freedom to explore ourselves and find our own path through life. It really isn't the time for "true love." But if you do meet Mr. or Mrs Right, have fun with them, too, and worry about "the relationship" later.

I've had a vasectomy, so she's not on BC. She claims it's the Prozac, stress, and the kids, her age (mid 40's). Funny, I've got stress, kids, 2 1/2 hr commute (round trip), my dad moved in a year ago (but the low libido issues were from before). I'm early 40's, and don't know when my libido takes a break. Seriously, I've got the old school method (drinking it away, "self-love") that I've gained some weight (5' 11", 220 lbs), so have quit the drinking to lose some weight. Either way, just fed up with the deal.
