Wash. U. students learn about kink, make crafts from contraceptives at Sex Week

This week is “Sex Week” at Washington University in St. Louis, where students can learn about sex toys, “the politics of pleasure,” and how to make crafts out of contraceptives.

The annual program is hosted by the school’s Peer Health Educators (PHEs), student volunteers who receive training on wellness issues such as stress management, lower-risk drinking, and safer sex, which they then promote on campus through events like Sex Week.

According to the PHE Facebook page, there is one activity scheduled each day from Monday through Friday, and while most of the events focus on the recreational side of sex, there is also a free screening for sexually-transmitted infections (STIs).

Sex Week 2016 kicked off Monday night with an event called “Let’s Talk about Sex (Toys),” which organizers billed as a place to learn “everything you want to know about sex toys,” complete with abundant examples.

The discussion was led by an employee from Box, a local retailer that “sells high-quality, non-toxic sex toys with a focus on those who are often invisible to the rest of society, people of color, differently-abled persons, and folks on the LGBTQQI spectrum,” and which the PHEs describe more succinctly as a “feminist sex store.”

After an interlude for STI testing Tuesday, the Sex Week programming resumed Wednesday with “ Java and Justice: The Politics of Pleasure,” a conversation co-hosted by the university’s Social Justice Center about “who gets to have sexual pleasure and who doesn’t” that, the PHEs helpfully note, took place on “hump day of Sex Week.”
