Philosophy has a history of expanding wisdom to include more worldly affairs. Continuing this tradition, College Sex-Philosophy for Everyone investigates a broad array of philosophical and moral issues relating to the sexual practices of students. Within the unique social setting of college comes a varied assortment of sexual relations and experiments, ranging from the mutually respectful, to the inebriated, meaningless, and the degrading. So lay back and ponder:
Do students' sexual acts need to involve love in order to have value?
Should college students avoid a "friends with benefits" relationship?
Should we condone relationships between students and teachers?
Why is college a socially acceptable space for experimentation?
Written with insight and humor, the essays shed light on sexual relations in college and examine a range of ethical issues, including dating, Cheating, courtship, homosexual experimentation, and drug and alcohol use, within the college setting.
