USC makes students answer invasive sex questions to register for classes this semester
From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:
USC: If you don’t tell us all about your sex life, you have to drop out.
The University of Southern California has a reputation as a world-class party school–but a new mandatory online course that requires students to reveal all about their sex and drinking lives might be taking the USC party spirit a bit far.
Indeed, according to an e-mail obtained by Campus Reform, the course is so mandatory that USC students are barred from registering for this spring’s semester until they comple it.
And do USC administrators ever want to know the skinny about what their students are doing before, during, and after parties! Here’s a rundown:
“The course begins with a detailed questionnaire that asks students to reveal how often they are having sex and using drugs or alcohol. The survey also asks students to specify the number of sexual partners they have had in the past three months.
“After revealing both the number of times they have had sex and with how many different people, students are then asked to state whether or not they used a condom.
“’If you had sex (including oral) in the last 3 months, how many times had you used a condom?”’ the survey asks.
“The questionnaire also asks students to discuss their drinking habits and encourages students to avoid ‘pre-gaming’ and ‘blacking out.’”
It’s hard to decide which would be more embarrassing: revealing that you’d had sex a whole lot with a whole lot of people–or revealing that you’d hadn’t had any sex at all with anybody.
