The world may be obsessed with our sex lives, but Yalies seem to be obsessed with their own. Yeah, it's that time of year again, so get ready for Sex Week at Yale, the hottest event to hit New Haven since the naked party.
Intended "to pique students’ interest and spark dialogue through creative, interactive, and innovative programming," Sex Week at Yale began in 2002 as a "Kosher Sex Day" organized by Yale Hillel. The plan expanded to a "Kosher Sex Week" because, as founder Eric J. Rubenstein quickly realized, according to the Sex Week at Yale Web site, "with a topic as loaded as sex... a day just isn’t enough."
After receiving enormous interest outside of the Jewish community, Yale Hillel agreed to broaden the focus of the program. Celebrated annually the week before Valentine's Day, Sex Week at Yale has attracted sexlebrities such as Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer, Ron Jeremy, and "a bunch of academics who talk about sex but don’t actually have it," according to IvyGate.
This year's Sex Week features sexpert Susan M. Block (better known as Dr. Suzy), seven-time Woody Award winner Sasha Grey, and pioneering female to male transsexual porn star Buck Angel. With lectures such as "Babeland’s Lip Tricks: Blowjobs and Going Down," "Sexual Fantasies," and "The 'M' Word" (spoiler alert: it's masturbation), expect our frenemies in New Haven to go from sexually inept to sexually adept.
The Yale Daily News has even gotten in on the action. After conducting a poll among 1,850 Yale undergraduates, the YDN concluded that, compared to their Harvard counterparts, Yale students have double to triple the sex partners.
Events around campus have begun to get hot and heavy after the Yale Pundits interrupted a Yale Political Union Debate entitled “Resolved: Reject Hookup Culture" by hooking up...everywhere.
