The Struggle for Sex Positivity at Sex Week

The scene when I arrived on campus Tuesday night was familiar: student volunteers scurried around preparing for that night’s lecture, “Sexploration: Boys, Girls, I Can’t Help It,” by Megan Andelloux. They wore navy blue and turquoise t-shirts that read “UT Sex Week: Let’s Talk About It” in pink and white lettering. Several hundred students attended Megan’s talk about the fluid nature of sexual attraction and orientation, eagerly asking questions and sharing comments throughout it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that those who attended were open and ready to discuss some tough topics.
