We’ve all been there. That moment when we have this burning desire…wait, not that type of burning desire…I mean a burning desire…for KNOWLEDGE! You’d like to ask that question in class, or in a training session, or to one of your friends, but you’re kind of afraid of judgment. Believe me, I know. Here’s the thing—when you’re the Dean of Sex, people just sort of assume that you’re a cool enough person to talk to about issues or things that are going on both in and out of the bedroom. Some of my neatest experiences that I’ve had on campus are hanging out in Post-QuEST/QuEST After Dark/Beyond QuEST discussion group times (Thursdays at 9 p.m.). These sex-positive discussions allow for students to get into the nitty-gritty of where their sex-ed class left off (or didn’t pick up if you didn’t have one!).
That’s where this column will step in. My goal is to provide a setting for what YOU, the Lafayette community, want to know more about in regard to healthy sex and sexuality. These questions or issues can range from how to create a sensual experience, to exploration of the “normal” versus “deviant” sides of sexuality, as well as sexual health, communication, healthy relationships, et cetera.
If you’d like to have your question answered, you must send an email to email@example.com with the subject line: Ask the Dean of Sex. Names and other identifying information will NOT be published in the article. You may also drop your questions in the Ask the Dean of Sex box located outside of Farinon 124. So, Lafayette community, what do you want to know? I am at your service!
