The Study Sex College Tour Launches Second Year of Vital Sex Positive Education
This fall, students will once again swarm college campuses across the nation. Rigorous courses will give them a chance to learn about almost any subject, but one important topic is frequently missing in this conversation: sexuality. Megan Andelloux, also known as “Oh Megan,” is a certified sexologist and educator who has created The Study Sex College Tour to fill this educational void.
Andelloux travels the country providing workshops that showcase how human sexuality can be presented in a fun and informative manner, while still meeting crucial educational needs. “The way sexuality is often discussed, especially with young adults, is based on shame and fear. Sexual health and pleasure should not be separated; to be effective and comprehensive, we must teach both. This tour is designed to further this idea and show that people who choose to be sexual can do so in ways that best fit their comfort levels and lifestyle. Information provided on this tour includes risk reduction and safer sex, as well as anatomy, pleasure, identity and more.”
Student groups that bring Andelloux to speak on their campus are entered into a competition where they are graded on their communication skills, program development, marketing and campus reach. At the end of each semester, the school with the highest overall score receives a basket filled with SSCT featured products. Andelloux states, “I’m very excited to be able to offer this competition as part of the tour. Not only are students learning about positive sexuality; they are also able to gain real world skills surrounding marketing, communication and working with other organizations. To be able to have such great companies supporting safer sex and sex-positivity for the younger generations makes this a beneficial situation for everyone involved.”
Founded in 2010, the Study Sex College Tour launched with the support of a select group of companies that promote sexual wellness and ethics. During the 2010-11 school year, Andelloux visited 37 campuses, including Duke, Chicago IIT, Brown University, UMass, and Wesleyan, providing almost a hundred hours of sexuality education across America. This year, the tour has expanded its partnerships, while maintaining relationships with repeat manufacturers such as Spareparts, Empowered Products, and OhMiBod. New companies on board include Aneros, Sliquid, Fun Factory, Toyfriend, Crystal Delights, Sportsheets, Kink Academy, and Sir Richard’s. This year, Good Vibrations will act as the official retailer for students attending workshops on the tour.
The Study Sex College Tour officially launches September 15th, 2011 and carries on through May 2012. Various colleges such as Northeastern, Brown, and Johnson & Wales have already signed up for Andelloux’s unique presentations that bring medically accurate and sex-positive education to adults.
