Comes in a  New York Times   piece aimed are reviving the reputation of campus “sex weeks,” in which the writer acknowledge there has been “some opposition” to these events:

Sex weeks have faced some opposition from colleges, alumni and students nearly everywhere they’ve been staged. Some people don’t like the idea of university resources being used to promote sexual activity. Others think the events promote an irresponsible, pleasure-first approach to sex.

What the writer doesn’t explain to his readers is that Yale forced its famous sex week to drop the university’s name because a panel (headed up by the judge who approved gay marriage in Connecticut) felt that it contributed to a sexually threatening environment . Unfortunately, readers of the Times  hear nothing about the culture of sexual harassment and assault (including a fraternity that had pledges chant “No means yes!”) that the panel believed was worsened by Yale’s sex week.
