The press has always primly averted its eyes from Sex Week at Yale, reporting only the barest of details from this trashy parade of porn stars and sex toy peddlers, lest it be deemed disapproving or prudish. For its part, the Yale administration has hidden behind the claim that it had no responsibility for the student-organized event (a claim that was always patently false), and that it was obligated to allow the conference to proceed on free speech grounds.
Now Nathan Harden reveals that Sex Week is far more grotesque than anyone outside a university could have imagined. Worse, Yale's eagerness to promote "glorious sex" among its students, as one bureaucrat put it, goes far beyond the sanctioning of Sex Week. Sex and God at Yale is a jaw-dropping account of one university's loss of moral compass. Yale has forgotten its mission: to expose students to the most beautiful and challenging creations of human thought, and to confer on them knowledge. Facility in the use of a cock ring is not the type of knowledge which universities are uniquely capable of providing. Unfortunately, Yale's abdication of adult authority is thoroughly typical of college administrations today. If there are any parents out there who still care about what their children are actually learning in college, this book will alert them to the travesties of higher learning likely occurring at their own child's school.(Heather Mac Donald, a John M. Olin Fellow at the Manhattan Institute)
