Claremont Climax: September 25

Did you know that 44 percent of Pomona students attempt anal sex in their first two years of college? Or that giving oral sex can reduce your risk of getting osteoporosis? We’ll discuss these and other statistics I made up in our weekly column, and if you’re curious about G-spots, threesomes, or how to overcome Ithyphallophobia (a morbid fear of seeing, or having an erect penis), then this is the column for you. We might collaborate, we might take turns, but either way, we’re pretty sure this is going to be the bombest sex column The Student Life has ever seen. We have an overwhelming fountain of knowledge and curiosity about all things sexual. We want this to be the reason you pick up the newspaper each week.Ask us anything about sex, and we’ll do our best to answer.We’re going to start the semester with some unpleasant realities of the campus sex and dating scene, including “disease in the 5Cs.” But first we want to have some fun. We’ll talk about virginity, threesomes, sex positions, sexual minorities, drugs and sex, sexual frustration, sex toys, relationships, kinky sex. We’re going to try to define the infamous 5C challenge.Part of what we’ll do in this column is debunk or affirm myths about sex, sort of like “Mythbusters,” but with the testicular fortitude of a man-eating gryphon with elephantitis. Have you ever heard that if you eat pineapple then your semen will taste sweet? Or that semen provides a significant source of protein? Or perhaps that vegetarian semen is actually quite delicious?Tuesday night, Scripps hosted Marshall Miller and Melissa Lopez, who tried to dispel some sexual myths of their own, from the “benefits” of faking orgasms to the “if you don’t use it, you lose it” masturbation theory. Miller and Lopez are sex educators famous for their “I (heart) Female Orgasm” college presentation, which takes a non-traditional stance on sex education. Unlike the standard American sex education, Miller and Lopez want to teach people how to say “yes” to sex, under the circumstances that work for them. They believe that sex education should teach people how to enjoy a healthy sex life—whether that means bondage, female ejaculation, or anal sex. From Miller and Lopez’s perspective, sex education in most middle and high schools teaches kids only that sex is a dangerous thing that should generally be avoided. Not only is this untrue, but it actually hurts normal sexual development. Imagine, if you will, a driver’s education course where instead of being taught to drive a car all the students are herded into a classroom where they’re taught that driving is very dangerous and potentially fatal. The problem is you wouldn’t know how to drive the car, where the gas pedal was, or how fast to go. If this sounds strikingly similar to sexual problems you hear about an awful lot, you shouldn’t be surprised.The quest for the “big O” can indeed be elusive-less than 30 percent of women orgasm consistently form vaginal intercourse, and 20 percent rarely or never do. The obvious lesson? Get down the business of gettin’ down. If you missed the event, but still want to increase your sexual prowess, here are a couple quick take-home lessons:1.) Foreplay, foreplay, foreplay. Ninety-three percent of women report orgasm consistently after 20 or more minutes of foreplay, hard to argue with those numbers.2.) Patience, patience, patience. Lots of women can take more than 30 minutes to orgasm—so keep up your sexual stamina.3.) Keep an open mind/anus/vagina. You never know what will turn you on till you try it.Keep these in mind and you’re sure to take your sexual skills to the next level. We’ll try to keep the column as informative and reader-friendly as possible, complete with Q&As and student surveys, and we’re welcome to feedback. So stay tuned for next week when we’ll take a look at the 5-C challenge and some other enticing sexual quests.
