Forty-four percent of men say their female partners always have an orgasm during sex; only 22 percent of women say men know what they are talking about, according to the Female "O" website.
The Women's Coordinating Council presents the Female "O," a program to talk openly and honestly about the idea of female orgasms, in the UC Auditorium at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Sex Discussed Here!, a company that spreads sexual awareness, will discuss orgasms, sex education and women's health in a light-hearted, relaxed environment.
"It answers those questions people have about sexual health," said Christina Hunt, WCC's chairperson. "Is there such thing as a G-spot? Is it good to fake an orgasm with your partner? It uncovers all of those answers with a professional opinion."
The full program focuses on making informed sexual decisions, body image, how to say "no," the female anatomy, busting orgasm myths and modern culture's view of female sex health.
"College comes with all the expectations or stereotypes about you having some crazy, wild sex life, so it's good to touch on the responsibility we have to our sexual health because college is where a lot of people experience sex for the first time," Hunt said.
While the program appears a women-only event, all genders and sexual orientations are welcome to attend.
"The thing with talking about sex is that it's not only important from a women's perspective but to men as well," Hunt said. "When you're in a sexual relationship, there is another person in that with you, whether a male or a female, so it's important to open up those pathways for communication."
Emmy Sheetz, a sophomore in chemical engineering, supports the spread of sexual awareness across college campuses.
"I believe it is necessary to promote sexual health because college is the time that many people become sexually active and if they are safe from the beginning, it could really help cut down on the spread of STDs," Sheetz said. "It is also important because some people never received the information when they were younger in life, so we should educate them to help prevent more teenage pregnancy than there already is."
When many find the subject taboo, such as Utah's bill last year that banned sex education in schools, WCC has found the program to be widely accepted throughout the UT campus.
"This isn't the first time we've brought them to campus; it's at least the third time, and we've never had any criticism," Hunt said. "The university supports us, and it comes from a very educational perspective."
The Women's Coordinating Council presents events regarding women's topics throughout the school year.
"The mission is to plan, implement and evaluate programs regarding women's issues from a feminist position," Hunt said. "We do programs that directly deal with women's issues, especially women on UT's campus: human trafficking, sexual assault, domestic violence, the pay gap. We cover a broad range of topics."
The Female "O" will be WCC's first event of the year, and they hope to create a comfortable environment for students to discuss sex without blushing.
Luckily, students are already willing to talk honestly.
"In our current society, women are taught to be private and, sometimes, ashamed of having a healthy sex life," Sheetz said. "Well, regardless of the social stigma on females being sexually active, we still need to know the facts about sex and orgasms.
"They are two facts of life, so we might as well be well-educated and proud."
