Transcript NO LONGER TABOO By Patricia Estrada and Travis Hensley In the old days, the word sex, would only be used in a public setting to describe someone's gender, now SEX is everywhere, from television shows, to magazines, it has become one of the most popular subjects, particularly with college students, who now find themselves free of parental controls and see this time as a time to experiment, educationally, mentality and sexually. If you believed everything that is said on TV or how the older generations define college students now days, you would think that everyone is having sex 24/7 and college is just a big orgy, but according to recent studies nothing could be farther from the truth. According to a study released March 3, 2011 by the Centers for Disease Control fewer teens and young adults are having sex. Twenty-eight percent of young adults ages 15-24 said they had never had any kind of sex, oral, anal or vaginal in the 2006/2008 National Survey of Family Growth. Why the decline? The report did not say, but the truth is that education and talking about sex, has helped young adults learn of the consequences and the choices they have before engaging in the act. "I think that maybe teens are thinking more about their decisions and that it isn't all about sex," Human Development and Family Studies junior Emily Pearl said. "Plus there is a lot of abstinence talk going around, including popular shows on TV." But for those people that are engaging in some extra-curricular activities, the talk of protection takes center stage. Popular campaigns like MTV's "Protect Yourself" promotes awareness of the different sexually transmitted diseases and having safe sex. Yet, despite these campaigns and sex education, not everyone is protecting themselves. According to the 2010 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior report of those having sex, only one in four couples, and one in three singles use a condom. Condom use in not only important to prevent becoming one of the 6 million pregnancies in America every year, according to the Kinsley Institute, but also the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases. And the topic of sex has now even become popular in the college classrooms. North Western Professor, J. Michael Bailey, received a lot of attention in late February for allowing a couple to demonstrate a sex toy during one of his optional lectures for his course on human sexuality. Bailey had to apologize in the media for allowing the incident to happen, and NWU President Morton Schapiro ordered an investigation of the incident, saying he was "troubled and disappointed by it", according to a CNN report on March 6. Pearl said she didn't see why everyone was making a big deal about it; students knew what they signed up for, she said. "I do not think the professor was wrong for doing so, after all it was a human sexuality course and they do talk about sex toys and many other things in there." Pearl said. "It is a part of the class. If the class were something other, then yes, maybe question the professor. Also, these are college students and I am sure they are all aware of what exactly they are doing and learning." So whether you are having sex or not, the topic is there, and the important thing is to educate yourself. News [69]
