One Valentine’s Day members of the Love and Fidelity Network at universities across the United States countered the casual sex culture on their campuses with a poster campaign to “Bring Datin Back.” The goal was to offer tips on dating to help young adults to “get to know someone respectfully and honorably.”
Many college students, young adults in general, and teenagers take for granted their “right” to have sex with anyone at any time — the hook-up culture — as long as the “consent and a condom” rule is observed. Many adults, both parents and educators, also consider sexual intimacy to be a normal part of boy-girl relationships, even at a young age, as long as long as both parties consent and a condom is used to “reduce the risk” of sexually transmitted disease. One sex education booklet for 12- and 13-year-olds says, “Sexuality is a part of being human. it’s a normal and healthy part of everyone’s life.”
Some university students want to change this culture. They know that sex is about more than consent. They are putting this message across on university campuses in the United States with 1000s of posters on dozens of campuses and withtheir annual “Sexuality, Integrity, and the University” conferences.
