Modeled after similar weeks at UT Knoxville, Harvard, and Yale, the Bairnwick Women’s Center, with the support of Spectrum, the GSD House, Sewanee Wellness Action Group, and the UWC, will be hosting Sex Week. Sex Week is focused on raising awareness for sexual wellness and empowering students of all sexualities to engage in healthy relationships. We see these topics as pertinent to the Sewanee community. Sex, sexuality, and sexual wellness are all a part of life and the college experience, yet intentional spaces for discussing these topics are often rarities. Similar to UT Knoxville, Sewanee’s Sex Week will host events addressing: virginity, consent, sexual violence, sexuality, sex within the LGBT+ community, healthy relationships, STIs and testing, as well as contraception.
