The bonobos have a lot of recreational sex, whereas violence prevails among the demonic males of certain larger primate species. I was thrown off a bit by Professor Rebhun. Thumbing through the Harvard course notes on the train to New Haven, I came upon a number of funny, flip remarks by the notetaker about the lecturer's solemn pronouncements on the roots of all human sexual behavior. For now, all that seems clear is that the banning of Sex Week isn't a statement against the discussion of sexuality, but something far more complex. Seeing the utter emptiness of the venue, the four panelists, in consultation with the two organizers, decided to turn the event into a conversation among themselves.

But Is-male has tried variants of this before, and there has always been some backsliding. And yet the scientific study of sex as opposed to unscientific, Kinsey-type sexology has a place in a world that for centuries lived in ignorance about the way things work "down there" to use the technical term. Syed added the role that power plays in the particular experiences of different cultures has not been seriously considered in the past. As a result, the focus of the event widened to include not only "kosher sex," but also safe sex, great sex, college sex, and tantric sex. Down-to-earth even if it was a remote part of the earth. Thus the disciples of the Parisian postmodern post-Freudian theorist Jacques Lacan are always going on about "desire" and "the body," but one never feels the remotest presence of desire or the body in their thinking. Instead, the letter seems to suggest that student organizers might have been getting kickbacks from corporate sponsors, a serious allegation that has nothing to do with sexual politics. Sex Week made space for later educational events like Trans Week at Yale to transpire. It was this new, subdued Rabbi Boteach that we were seeing. Seriously, as I once reported, the distinctive element of the Skull and Bones bonding ritual which two Presidents named Bush took part in is the sexual confessional session, in which each of the initiates must devote one evening to sharing with the other fourteen initiates a detailed history of his sex life.

Instead I went to the video store and rented the film I recalled as being at once the most erotic and the bleakest and darkest vision of sex on celluloid, one whose very title sums up the destructive third-rail power of sexuality: Goldstein disclosed an astonishing autobiographical fact: Doshi added that Asian Americans often experience cases of hypersexualization and desexualization on campus.
