Let’s talk about sex
By Karen Rodriguez, Staff Writer
The word “sex” is considered taboo on most college campuses. However, sex is a common activity for most college students. The fact of the matter is that college is no longer high school, and students are not just students. They are adults who are free to make their own decisions. Whether they choose to engage or not engage in this act, in the end, it is really up to what they believe.
“I believe that most people don’t take into consideration what sex is really supposed to be about,” said Noemi Contreras, senior business and public policy major from Union City.
“Sex is supposed to be something sacred and beautiful,” said Contreras. “I assume it happens on campus. I do feel that sex is such a beautiful action of love and commitment and should be regarded with care and respect. We should view it as a treasure of great value.”
The reasons for sexual encounters vary from one person to the other. Some students believe that sex is not a topic that should be disapproved of.
Another Young Harris College student, who did not wish to have their name in the article, states, “It’s not a sensitive topic for me. I think it’s a natural thing and I do believe that it goes on here on campus, c’mon we are all adults. You would have to be very naïve to think that it doesn’t.”
Whatever the reason for sexual activity, one thing is for sure, it happens. People my not want to address it, parents might not want to admit it and others might turn a blind eye. However, college will always be college, and sex will always be sex.
