DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — A University of New Hampshire forum about orgasms has drawn a lot of criticism — and about 500 students.

The room was packed Thursday night to hear a sexuality educator give her presentation on “Orchestrating Orgasms.”

Conservative advocacy groups such as Cornerstone Action and Americans for Prosperity N.H. expressed dissatisfaction that Megan Andelloux’s presentation was being funded by UNH’s student activity fee, which comes out of each student’s required college expenses.

A student committee that decides use of the activity fee approved the lecture.

Some students said it’s good to talk about sexual issues and they welcomed the event.

Andelloux, who started her career as a sex educator for Planned Parenthood, said as she moved to adult sex education, the adults were asking the same questions as kids.
