MEMORIAL UNION BUILDING — Students across campus have been tepid about engaging in the University of Saskatchewan’s annual Sex Week events and celebrations — which includes a sex-toy party, drag show and game night — hosted by the U of S Students’ Union from Feb. 26 to March 2, but it’s probably just because they’re not getting laid, anyway.
A recent survey, conducted by a third-year archaeology student, found that only 15 per cent of the undergraduate student body is regularly engaging in sexual activity, though it was reported that most survey participants were from the department of computer science.
Sex Week programming and events aim to educate students about safe and consensual sex as well as diverse sexualities and viewpoints on sexual practices. Led by the USSU Pride Centre, the week also runs in conjunction with the Menstrual Product Drive run by the Women’s Centre. Co-ordinators emphasize that participation is valuable, even if you don’t get busy as often as you’d like.
