Harvard is hosting its third annual “Sex Week,” a week of programs promoting a holistic understanding of sex and sexuality among students, according to the event’s website.
The event is coordinated by a student-run group,Sexual Health Education & Advocacy throughout Harvard College (SHEATH),with thegoal of connecting diverse communities through “common human experiences with love, sex, sexuality and relationships.”
Featured events include “Losing Your (Concept of) Virginity,” “Fifty Shades of False: Kink, Fantasy, and Fetish” and “What What in the Butt: Anal Sex 101,” a program that received considerable media backlash for being “downright vulgar,” according to the Huffington Post.
“Saying we don’t need [the workshop] is like saying we don’t need sex education, or should have abstinence-only education or that people should feel ashamed for doing whatever it is that’s part of their sexual practice,” SHEATH co-president Kirin Gupta said in an interview with MTV News.

Two administrators perpetuated widespread academic fraud at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill within an academic department consisting of various athletic teams, according to a report published on Wednesday.
The report details how students –many of them athletes –in the University’s African and Afro-American studies department were able to take no-show courses and earn passing grades for doing little to no work, ensuring their eligibility to compete.
UNC Chapel Hill hired former federal prosecutor Kenneth Wainstein, now a partner at the law firm of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, to investigate the matter.
The two administrators in question, former department chairman Julius Nyang’oro and retired administrator Deborah Crowder, decided to cooperate with Wainstein to produce the most detailed examination yet after criminal charges were dropped against them earlier this year.
So far, nine employees have been dismissed or disciplined in connection to the investigation, which started years ago.

The announcement that the University’s Office of Technology Licensingestablishedthe position of executive in residence to help commercialize its research comes in the midst of alawsuitagainst the University regarding its tax-exempt status.

“They’re being sued in a nationally renowned lawsuit over abusing tax-exempt privileges,” the plaintiffs’ representative and Princeton-based lawyer Bruce Afran said of the University.
