Dan Savage: Tulane Has the Horniest College Students


Maybe this explains that whole sugar babies thing. In an interview that went online yesterday, sex advice columnist and Santorum definer Dan Savage told GQ that of all the college campuses he visited for his MTV show Savage U, Tulane is the horniest. Hooray?

 

 

From the interview:

 

GQ: You interviewed students all over the country about sex. What school had the horniest population?

 

Savage: Tulane [laughs]. Tulane, hands down. It might as well be a school in the New Jersey state system.

 

 

At least a fraction of what Savage saw at Tulane was committed to film in episode 10 of Savage U. Highlights from the episode include the student who was reluctant to tell her casual lesbian hook-up about her boyfriend, the student who complained about men always wanting her pee on them, and the student who wondered if girls from well-heeled East Coast families were less likely to have STDs.

 

“What are the odds of getting an STD at Tulane?” the student asked.

 

“Pretty high,” said Savage.

 

In the GQ interview, Savage said that while filming the show on college campuses around the country, “there were a couple folks who we'd start to shoot and have to pull aside. We were like, I know you may be comfortable with this right now, but you're not going to be comfortable with this in five years.”

 

Savage’s assessment of Tulane students aside, Savage U proves college kids everywhere are eager to talk about sex. While not exactly a revelation, students’ willingness to bare their, um, souls on national television might be a result of the online generation’s lax attitudes toward personal privacy.

 

Savage promotes sex-positive thinking, so the intention of the show is never to judge, humiliate, or ridicule. Instead he pulls back the curtain to reveal attitudes about sex that aren’t normally addressed in a public forum. At Tulane, at least according to the episode filmed there, those attitudes range from curious, to embarrassed, to intellectual.

 

“I’ve actually never gone down on a guy before he’s gone down on me,” said one student. “I’m a feminist,” she explained.
