I think there would be more complaints at a private school than a public school.

It's a dumb name. But then, as Wm. Shakespeare wrote, "what's in a name?"

In this case, apparently much more than I thought.

Anyway I'm all for educating people about sex. I remember we had to watch a movie in 6th grade about how pigs procreate, and it scarred me for life. I did not EVER want to do THAT. I mean, not with a pig, with a person of the opposite sex. Please. Don't even go there.

For some reason this thread reminded me of a book I read as a young adult, The Harrad Experiment, http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss...er%2Caps%2C172

Believe me, I just dated myself big time.

33girl, yes! A very scandalous movie made from an even more scandalous book. Had my mother known I read it in high school she would have forbidden me to attend college.

I just googled and why I remember this is even more silly. Don Johnson was in it with Tippi Hedren and that's how he met Melanie Griffith (who was jailbait at the time).

So I guess if Dakota Johnson is as bad in 50 Shades as everyone is saying we can blame it on the Harrad Experiment. Lol

The real question here is one of priorities. The main reason we all go to college is to get ahead in life through opening career opportunities; though we all like sex as well, getting pregnant is definitely a "millstone" to opportunity as well as an inconvenience (at the very least). It would definitely not be something most colleges would want associated with their campuses. If the "toy party" is for the curtailment of pregnancy, I could see a real use for it, however, these sorts of parties often encourage a higher frequency of encounters that could put a students college success at risk. Ultimately, it is up to the individual to decide; policies, laws, regulations, and social pressure should not dictate what common sense should have solved long ago.

Depends on the private school. Some are *much* more religious than the average Public School, some *much* less. My Alma Mater (Carnegie-Mellon) paid more attention to the Robotics club than it did to Campus Ministry and had a Gay and Lesbian group with Student Government funding in the mid 1980s.
