No doubt college students have sex, though probably never as much as they would prefer, but this will likely get some parents—especially parents of students at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota—to think seriously about the “home colleging” option for their kids. Freshmen orientation included sexual skits preformed on stage by underclassmen attired in lion costumes. (Who knows why they picked on lions.) “Condom man” shows up with a pithy remark about safe sex, and then . . . oh, heck, click the link yourself for what an on-campus protest group called sexual indoctrination .

There were also helpful hints about how to alert a roommate to stay away while engaged in sex and another on how to tell your roommate you are gay. Since Gustavus Adolphus is a Lutheran college (ELCA), far from the founding roots of the Swedish immigrants who established the school, coming out gay to a roommate may be less stressful than coming out as an active Christian.
