She said she's been working in the field for 17 years and designed her lecture to educate students about different types of orgasms, sexual response systems, and how to have more orgasms. Andelloux said the presentation would feature "no live sex acts on stage."
"These are adults and if they want to come up on the stage and get that thrill, then that's fine," said the 37-year-old from Rhode Island. UNH spokesman Erika Mantz said the lecture was "just one event in a month of programming for students around healthy, safe and respectful decision-making related to sex."
"Last I checked I'm 19 and that's an adult. As an adult it's my right to learn about whatever I want and sex happens all the time, especially on college campuses. It's really important for psychological and physical relationships," said Stevens, of Boston.
"I think suppressing the issue and not talking about it at all is worse," she said.
During the presentation, Andelloux handed out sexually explicit gifts to students in the audience, saying they were from manufacturers who value sex toy education.
As hundreds of students lined before the event, UNH student Joshua McGraw, 27, sat on a sofa away from the crowd reading a newspaper. The former Marine had no plans to attend.
