Former Planned Parenthood employee will be speaking at the State University of New York at Oswego on October 7. Her lecture, “Getting a Grip: Mastering Your Sexuality,” is featured on the university’s website and also on Andelloux’s site.
Students at Oswego will learn “masturbation techniques” and also “what other people are secretly into” during the two-hour forum, according to the lecture’s description.
The student group Pride Alliance invited the sexologist to Oswego. As with other groups and clubs on campus, Pride Alliance gets its funding from Oswego’s student association that distributes funds from required student activities fees.
Students at a University of New Hampshire lecture by Andelloux last week were treated to sex toy giveaways. Those who attend the Monday night lecture at Oswego will also get freebies. During the course of the event, there was a clitoris demonstration with a vulva puppet, information on safe toy use, and a Kegel exercise audience participation event, among many other themes. People who participated received vibrators, restraint systems, butt-plugs and other assorted sexual toys.
As a former Planned Parenthood employee, she should be an ace at teaching Masturbation–
How did Megan get involved in teaching sexuality for adults?
At the beginning of her career, Megan provided sex education for youth as a sexuality educator through Planned Parenthood. Midway through, she started working part time at a feminist run sex toy shop providing sexuality education for the local community. Through conversations at the sex toy shop and the community events she was asked to speak at, she noticed that many adults had the same questions about sexuality as young people she taught during the day. This lead to the discovery that the vast majority of sex education in this country is geared toward youth. Her firm belief is that all people regardless of age should have access to safe and accurate sex information in ways that they can relate to and learn from. Thus, in 2010 she decided to start two separate, and in her estimation needed, adult sex education programs: The Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and The Study Sex College Tour.
However, her Facebook page states she is still affiliated with Planned Parenthood.
It says, “Works at the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health, Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance and Planned Parenthood Action.”
Her Tumblr page includes photos of a skull, vertebrae and jars that have dead babies. A caption below reads, “I love all things medical. Look at all the time that went into making these things so beautiful and well kept. It’s hard to choose the prettiest one.”
Ivy League universities who have hosted the sexologist include Harvard, Brown, and Yale.
Andelloux has also appeared at the University of Tennessee several times. Earlier this year funding for the student group that hosted the lecture was cut due to outside political pressure.
However, the forum was able to proceed because of private donations and one large donation from Planned Parenthood.
“The only large donation we got was from Planned Parenthood, and they gave us $1,000 from their emergency relief fund,” one of the group’s members told Generation Progress.
