Such "exiting" topics like:

 

Atheism and Sex;

 

Great Oral Sex: with Tea Time and Sex Chats;

 

The Perfect Vagina; and

 

Anal 101...just to name a few...

This certainly proves that $30, 000 to $40,000 per year tuition is well worth it...

Bob, now why would I be either?  More than likely both.

That's what happens when government takes over education. That kind of education would not survive competition in a free market.

JTS: "That's what happens when government takes over education. That kind of education would not survive competition in a free market."

 

 

First, the University of Chicago is private.  Even if it were not, we do have competition in a free market among schools, even among state- , county- and city-funded institutions: Ohio State versus Indiana State versus University of California (all campuses), versus Ole Miss, etc., etc.,  It is why the world's high schools beat ours, but their graduates come here.  Other nations tend to have national institutions with unvarying curricula.  Heidelberg has long competed against Cambridge, of course.  Still and all by 1850, Ohio alone had more colleges and universities than all of Europe.  And, of course, we have private schools, which most other nations lack - again Cambridge, the new Central European University in Budapest (founded by the Hungarian George Soros) - standing as exception..  You could fill a shopping cart with brochures. It is a serious market here the USA.

 

To paraphrase, jts, your opinion is what happens when ideology takes over a good mind.

Sex sells in a free market.

Sex sells in any market, but that is irrelevant here.  So-called "Sex Week" was a coordinated and co-joined effort by several campus groups, centered (perhaps, who knows?) on the LGBT activists, if only because the putative "libertarians" and others like the Republicans cannot say "s-e-x" out loud.  This is not a university class, course, or curriculum.

 

Basically, the topic here is only Adam Selene's own salacious view of the human body. As much as I respect his insight, he does occasionally as now post sexualist links.  This is merely another.  I like sex as much as the next h. saps, but this has nothing to do with glorifying sexuality and more with writing dirty words on alley fences.  On the other hand, I really did appreciate his link to the TED Talk, "Ten Things You Did Not Know About Orgasm."   With Selene (who is not my daughter), you winnow the wheat.

 

Moreover, what is wrong with a university-level class in sex?  I mean you cannot drive a car without some appreciation for physics, and yet, we teach physics.  What makes you think that "everyone" (including you) knows all you need to about (sshh!) sex.  It is a study like any other.

 

If you think that it is "dirty" or "private" then that puts the ball in your court.  Serve or shut up.

>>>>Moreover, what is wrong with a university-level class in sex?

 

What's right about it?

 

>>>What makes you think that "everyone" (including you) knows all you need to about (sshh!) sex.

 

A compelling argument. It makes me wonder how we all got along for so many centuries in the absence of university-level classes in fellatio and cunnilingus. (Life must have been so difficult back then. My, my, how DID we ever manage?)

 

 

>>>It is a study like any other.

 

Like any other? Then why limit such studies to sex? We should have university-level courses in defecation and micturation. Those, too, are "studies like any other." And paraphrasing you: What makes you think that "everyone" (including you) knows all you need to about (sshh!) ka-ka and pee-pee.

 

Your viewpoint strikes me as simple classroom bias.  Many studies do not require classrooms for learning; we can learn them (and in this case, ought to do so) informally, outside of the classroom. Neither learning nor teaching stops when one steps outside of a classroom.

 

>>>If you think that it is "dirty" or "private" then that puts the ball in your court.  Serve or shut up.

 

Not exactly sure what you mean by "dirty", but in any case, whether sex is "dirty" or "clean" would be someone's subjective evaluation. In other words, it's of little relevance for this discussion.  Whether or not sex ought to be a private act, however, is a question bearing on both ethics and politics, and has nothing to do with whether one regards it as dirty or not (in other words, just because one regards sex as squeaky-clean, it doesn't follow therefore that it ought to be done publicly, or presented in classrooms). At root is the distinction between "public space" and "private space" which, apparently, you don't recognize; and equally at root is the traditional notion that sex — dirty or clean — is an intimate act, that acquires much of its unique value precisely because it is done in private; i.e., the privacy enhances the intimacy, and the intimacy reinforces the private, individualistic nature of the act.

 

I don't see university-level courses in sex acts as having any other effect on students than to make sex less intimate, less private, less individualistic, less important, and ultimately less meaningful and enjoyable. In fact, I believe that is the actual purpose behind teaching it as if it were a "subject" like accounting.

 

Rand sometimes spoke about admirers of her novels telling her that they would often ask themselves, "What would Howard Roark [or John Galt, or Dagny Taggart] do in this situation?" Accordingly, it behooves Objectivists to ask themselves, "I wonder if John Galt, Francisco D'Anconia, and Dagny Taggart, as students at the Patrick Henry University, would have changed their majors from physics and philosophy to blow-jobs and double-penetration?"

 

I don't think so.

I consider myself to be real laid back and tolerant about sex. (But I keep OL essentially family-friendly for several reasons that are outside the scope here.)

 

I've even put my voice on a few porn films in Brazil (in the down time of major productions), dubbing them from Portuguese to English. It was extra money and I was there sitting around, so why not?

 

I even directed the dubbing for some. This was just audio, not filming, but the experience was a hoot, especially getting the female dubbers, who were generally English teachers living in Brazil and people like that who had never dreamed of doing something like that, to "open up their souls" and let 'er fly. (Once a couple of them crossed the line, even I got embarrassed listening to the replay.)  :smile:

 

Still...

 

Man, that's a lot of stuff in those courses!
