The University of Utah (UU) and Planned Parenthood have joined together once again to fund “Sex Week” at the school, where student participants have the opportunity to win a year’s supply of contraception.
UU student group Students for Choice – which is supported by Planned Parenthood on campus – has organized the event along with the College of Social Work, the Office of Equity and Diversity, and Associated Students of UU. “Sex Week’s” stated mission is to “raise awareness about reproductive justice by deconstructing reproductive oppression and advocating for our bodies, our families, and our lives.”
According to Students for Choice’s Facebook page, some professors will offer students extra credit or “tardy makeups” if you attend a “Sex Week” event. Included Wednesday on the schedule is a “Hip Hop Feminism” workshop that focuses on “Love, Pleasure, and Self-Image,” with a performance by “Colored Girls Hustle,” a group that “believes health and pleasure are human rights.”
On Thursday, students are invited to participate in a “Make Your Own Safe-Sex Kit” workshop, a free HIV/STD testing session, and a Planned Parenthood Ambassador Training event.
