  1. Slut shaming, hookups, sexting, and porn. These are the backdrops to sex in the 21st century—and topics that receive robust media attention. This panel expands the conversation by highlighting recent events on college campuses, which are the site of both progressive change and regressive campaigns. Topics for discussion include organized attacks on abortion rights, crisis pregnancy centers, national attention to campus sexual assault, and conversations about kink, new media, and other explorations in sexual pleasure. Whether college is in our past or our future—or whether we attended the College of Life—campus issues are trial balloons for broader public concerns. These are issues that matter to us all.
