A private liberal arts college in New York will be hosting an explicit sexual workshop for students next Monday. As the web site Campus Reform exposes:

The workshop, hosted by Hamilton College’s Womyn’s Center, will teach “everything from multiple orgasms to that mysterious G-spot,” according to its official description, and is open to male and female students.

“Whether you want to learn how to have your first orgasm, how to have better ones, or how to help your girlfriend, Maggie and Marshall cover it all,” touts the event description on the Womyn’s Center’s Facebook page.

“Maggie and Marshall,” Marshall Miller and Maggie Keenan-Bolger, are the two “sex educators” who teach the workshop.

The college did not respond to the web site’s request for comment, especially about whether anyone under the age of 18 would be permitted to attend or whether their would be any public demonstrations. The event Facebook page has 77 people who say they are planning to attend.

This isn’t the first college to host the controversial workshop — the University of Minnesota did so earlier this year.



The description of the event, which is hosted by the university’s Office of Diversity and Equity’s Women’s Center, does not say whether there is an age requirement. While the average age of undergraduates at UMTC is 21, it is not uncommon for students to enroll at the age of 17.

A university spokeswoman, Patricia Mattern, however, suggested there is in fact no age requirement in an e-mail statement to Campus Reform on Monday.

“This educational workshop is open to the full university community and participation is voluntary,” she said.  “As a research institution, we study, publish and educate on a vast range of topics, including human sexuality.”

The program is costing the university $3,406 and is part of the university’s mission of “research,” she added.
