Allegheny College Hosts Sex, Masturbation Seminar Inside Church

0

Allegheny College’s Ford Memorial Chapel hosted a 'seminar on Wednesday night, which featured professional sex educators advising students on sex and masturbation.

According to TheCollegeFix.com, the chapel normally hosts Catholic mass and non-denominational services every week on the Meadville, Pennsylvania campus.

Two sex educators, Marshall Miller and Kate Weinberg, told students about a variety of masturbation techniques. 

The event was hosted by Allegheny’s student government, Allegheny College’s Reproductive Health Coalition and Young Feminists and Queers and Allies. It was funded by student activities fees.

“Sometimes it can be difficult finding your G spot by yourself, because it involves inserting a finger or fingers inside the vagina into the front wall of the body, and that kind of results in an awkward, kind of claw-like hand position,” Weinberg said. “Obviously, there are better ways you can position your body. Or if you’ve got a partner, you can get your partner to insert their finger or fingers inside your vagina in the front wall of your body in a sort of a J curve.”

The sex educators had also told students masturbation is not a sin, which contradicts Catholic teachings.

Weinberg addressed the Book of Genesis in the bible in regard to masturbation: “So this primary anti-masturbation story is about this guy, Onan. … And Onan refused to sleep with his brother’s wife, so he spilled his seed on the ground, that’s how it’s defined, and for that, God struck him dead."

“A lot of Bible scholars say that’s the primary anti-masturbation story, but I don’t really see it. Onan wasn’t struck dead for masturbating. He was struck down for not sleeping with his brother’s wife. So the masturbation wasn’t the sin. So obviously, you know, the Bible is something that is interpreted in a lot of different ways.”

Chaplain Jane Ellen Nickel, who manages the office of Spiritual and Religious Life, said in an email to TheCollegeFix.com: “I don’t have a problem with it being held in the chapel. The program advocates responsible, respectful decision-making regarding sexual behavior, and includes the option waiting for marriage, a message that resonates with many students of faith."
