East Tennessee State Students Trying to Raise Funding for Sex Week

by Associated Press

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. ―Some East Tennessee State University students say they will try to raise funds online for a Sex Week program after the Student Senate turned down a funding request.

The Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance had asked for $9,340 to put on a three-day event in February. It would be similar to a weeklong event at the University of Tennessee that has drawn the ire of some lawmakers.

Kathryn Travis, a member of the event’s planning committee, told The Johnson City Press that a fundraising page was started on Wednesday on crowdrise.com. She said the group hopes to raise $10,000.

Organizers say the Sex Week program isn’t designed to become a spectacle, but to create a safe and mature dialogue among adults who are sexually active.
