I enjoyed Emily Win’s commentary on discussing sex, or the lack thereof until marriage. Not because I agree with the premise, nor do I know who she cited when she said that chaste people are healthier — no, I liked her article because I agree that we don’t have the opportunity to discuss sex on campus. In my four years at SLU, the only dialogue regarding sex I attended discussed the myth that is virginity. The lack of discussion on campus isn’t enforced by SLU administrators either; the gatekeepers preventing healthy discussions of sex are students, afraid of the repercussions. There should be spaces where people can comfortably discuss the power dynamics of sex, threesomes, BDSM, masturbation and yes, chastity. A subject as important to college students as sex shouldn’t remain taboo.
