U sponsoring symposium on the female orgasm

by Rebecca Harrington

Guaranteed to have a massive turnout, the Univeristy of Minnesota will host a program exploring female sexuality and the "big O" this April.

Sex and relationship educators Marshall Miller and Kate Weinberg have given talks at nearly 270 different universities, according to their website. "The Female Orgasm: A Program About Sexual Health and Women's Empowerment" — the symposium they'll give at the University — is one of their most popular programs.

The show will be open to everyone in the University community, and will not have a minimum age requirement, campusreform.org reported. University spokeswoman Patty Mattern told the site in an email that the event will cost $3,406.

“This educational workshop is open to the full university community and participation is voluntary,” Mattern said in the email.  “As a research institution, we study, publish and educate on a vast range of topics, including human sexuality.”

Attendees should expect a mixture of lecture and small group discussion with "lots of humor" and "plenty of honesty," according to the event description.

Registration for the event is available online.
