Another Dartmouth Experience: First Times

In September 2010 on December 16, 2010 at 5:01 am

As you’ve hopefully seen from the variety of experiences in this newsletter, all people are sexual beings, whether they choose to express their sexuality or not. Everybody is united by the experience of a “first time,” whether it is a first kiss, first date, first time having sex or first time having sex at college. Two Sexperts have launched a project based on the commonality of a first time, in hopes that the unification of a variety of experiences will promote open discussion of sex and sexual decision-making at Dartmouth. The First Time Project is a collection of audio and video recordings from members of the Dartmouth community about their first time. While still in the editing process, the video will be used as a part of sexual health and education programming on campus, focusing on incoming classes of Dartmouth students during freshman orientation and beyond. The video may be shown in public settings as well as during floor meetings in hopes to facilitate conversation about sexual health and decision-making on campus.  The First Time Project will not only show the spectrum of experiences students have had on campus, but provide incoming classes with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their own sexuality.  It will be available either this winter or next fall, depending on the D-plans of its makers. Quotes from the project appear at the bottom of each page of the newsletter.
