Making a return trip to Penn College, authors Joni Frater and Esther Lastique renewed their “Sex Ed Boot Camp” presentation for about 500 students in the Klump Academic Center Auditorium on Wednesday night. With humor, patience, sensitivity and straightforward answers, the pair facilitated a matter-of-fact discussion of sexual health and intimacy – a respectful dialogue with their young audience about smart decisions (and the life-altering consequences of poor ones). The visit was organized by Student Activities and College Health Services, and partially funded through a grant from the Female Health Co.
