Harvard University Offers ‘Anal 101’ Class

Anal Sex 101

Harvard, the catch-all universe of sweater vests and croquet clubs, is offering a particularly engaging class to join its Ivy League curriculum. This week, the university will be offering an anal sex workshop, named (we’re assuming in homage to South Park’s Butters) “What What in the Butt: Anal Sex 101,” as part of it’s annual Sex Week.

This marks the event’s third year in a row at the uni, “a week of programming that is interdisciplinary, thought-provoking, scholastic, innovative and applicable to student experiences in order to promote a holistic understanding of sex and sexuality.” Student-run groups will host a variety of classes that go beyond the school’s educational standard, inviting fellow students to sit-in.

As for Anal 101 on Tuesday evening, expect to “learn everything about anal sex from the experts of Good Vibrations, a sex-positive store located right in Brookline!” The course description continues,

They will dispel myths about anal sex and give you insight into why people do it and how to do it well… Learn the facts about this exciting yet often misunderstood form of pleasure, find out the common mistakes people make, and get all your questions answered!

Topics of interest will include: anal anatomy, how to talk about anal sex with your partner(s), basic prep and hygiene, precaution to take for safer sex, proper lubes and anal toys.

So, where do we sign up?

Harvard’s Sex Week is organized by Sexual Health Education & Advocacy, SHEATH, which says the group is “dedicated to empowering the Harvard community to explore their experiences with love and sex by providing comprehensive programming addressing a wide range of issues relating to sex, relationships, dating, sexual health, and sexuality.”

However, not everyone’s thrilled about exploring new nether regions.

“I do question the amount of time and resources that went into planning and funding these events, some of which are downright vulgar, at a place like Harvard,” student Molly Wharton complained to The College Fix. “I can’t imagine that there are not more worthwhile educational programs and initiatives to which Harvard’s resources should be devoted.”

And here we are, having trouble thinking of anything more worthwhile than anal etiquette.
