Her college’s “Sex Week” debuted with workshops like How to be a Gentleman and Still Get Laid and How to Have a Successful Threesome. That’s when she decided to take stuffs into her own hands …
In 2014, Sex Week debuted on my campusthe University of New Mexicowith seminars entitled How to Be a Gentleman and Still Get Laid and How to Have a Successful Threesome, among other salacious headliners.
Advice doled out throughout the week included oral sex proficiencies. Organizers even dressed as genitalia aimed at eliminating the shame that comes with sex.
In 2015, sexuality week recalled. During various workshops, it was received information that the Bible aids abortion and homosexuality, and that abortion and hormonal contraception have no negative effects on the body. Other topics included how to use Chap Stick as lube, orgy tips-off, support for open unions anal fornication how-toseven talk of how to destigmatize STDs.
How do I know? I attended the events and took notes.
The pattern of objectification and a lack of responsibility became evident. It was clear organizers had an agendateach my peers that anything extends, and there are no consequences.
I knew it was time to take concerns into my own hands, so I decided to host a Sex Week myselfbut this time, it would be focused on sexual education , not sex gratification.
After eight long months of planning, Students for Life UNM introduced The Real Sex Week to the University of New Mexico in March.
We began with a workshop debating the males and form, the biology behind intercourse, and how the purposes of the act of sex alters our minds and relationships, attaching humen chemically and comparing the notion that one-night stands have no impact on womens psyches.
Our second seminar was jam-pack with STD education and information on contraception from a neighbourhood OBGYN, Dr. Ann Church. We discussed the success and failing frequency of different contraception( did you know that condoms have a 18 percent default rate ?) and looked at how hormonal contraception negatively affects the body, because those who use oral contraceptives have up to 10 seasons the risk of developing breast cancer as does a non-user.
We likewise schooled about other forms of contraception, such as Natural Family Planning, which is an umbrella term for different methods used to cause and frustrate pregnancies, all based on the observation of the naturally occurring signalings of the fruitful and infertile phases of the status of women menstrual cycle. The -Aword, abstention, was also touted. Students learned that shunning sex before union actually has positive effects, such as lower exposures to an STD and more positive thinkings about life in general.
Our next nighttime was all about reinforcing pregnant and parenting students, a topic near and dear to my middle as I payed birth to a son in 2014, when I was a junior.
I am not alone. Practically 4.8 million undergraduate students are parent education dependent infants, according to the Institute for Womens Policy Research.
When a woman becomes pregnant while still in institution, the two main press she faces are to fall by the wayside or have an abortion. Not enough men and women are empowered and supported to continue their education and parenthood.
During our Pregnant and Parenting Support workshop, we heard from a neighbourhood pregnancy center, Womens Pregnancy Options, as well as testimonies from five mothers who are recent graduates or still in institution. The admonition they doled to female students who find themselves pregnant? Stick it outtheres subsidize available, such as pregnancy assets centers and “the member states national” Students for Life of America initiative, Pregnant On Campus.
All five girls concluded their comments by talking of how thankful they are that they continued their education and chose life rather than abortion.
Our next night offered mending from carnal abuse with mentor Rebecca Frock, as well as mending from abortion with the help of Surrendered Hearts. At the other fornication week at my school, students were taught “there wasnt” lasting harmful effects from abortion, but the women who attended our forums were indeed in pain from their choice to abort, and received forgiveness and healing through the nighttime filled with weepings, hugs and terms of encouragement.
We settled The Real Sex Week with a women self-defense class offered by MMA boxers Jesonna Ollis and Greg Mundth. Instead of listening that most college humen are rapists who need to be taught to control themselves, females in our workshop gained empowerment by discovering how to fight off would-be attackers.
Throughout the entire week, more than 20 organizations that support students tabled: health clinics, maternity cores, parenting programs, WIC, childcare assistance, counselors, sexual assault awareness curricula, gyms and more. Care Net pregnancy centres Know Now mobile unit also came to campus, offering free STD testing and treatment and pregnancy testing to more than 30 students.
Bringing alternative solutions sexuality week to UNM had its challenges. Mere days before our The Real Sex Week began, ultra-feminist peers on my campus announced they would be hosting The Real Sex Ed on the same days as our event.
In addition to mimicking our name and creating competing postersall designed to hurt our attendancethe group tore down our flyers and told students not to accompany our incidents because we were supposedly spreading homophobic and shameful material.
They likewise formed a blog and called for both students and the community to tell UNM President Robert Frank to slam our episode down. And they tabled outside before our happenings, dressed up as genitalia, and handed out condoms.
Their opposition descended flat. We never heard a peep from our campus chairwoman. Attending at our incidents was strong.
But the most rewarding outcome of our week was witnessing students gladly receive our information materials and leave with a positive outlook on sexuality, pregnancy and their importance as girls. It was a meter of healing, hope, empowerment and love.
As conservative college students, we must regain our campuses.
Feminist professors and students desensitize their peers to the potential consequences of sex, and often fail to address the negative impacts of abortion and options for support for women who choose life.
Sex Week should challenge students to make responsible selections, rather than mislead them and promote reckless lifestyles.
Due to the success of our The Real Sex Week, theres talk of establishing it a national occurrence through Students for Life of America.
Lord willing, the free movement of persons originates. It was one of the hardest but honoring acts Ive ever done, besides giving birth and promoting my beautiful son, Daniel.
