“Students can also see and make condom art and join a condom scavenger hunt,” the article continues.

Professor William Simmons told the newspaper that he does not like term papers or exams and prefers an “action learning assignment.”

“Hopefully this will get students comfortable knowing what condoms are,” he said.

“Sex, Health, and AIDS” is a three-credit undergraduate course which “sets out to explore this social and disease phenomenon from a number of perspectives,” according to the description on the official course listing website.
