Female O: Becoming a Yearly Tradition

Michelle R Morra

It is probably one of the most popular events of the year, which is probably why SCOPE keeps bringing it back.  This year was no

SCOPE has been planning the event with presenters Marshall Miller and Rachel Dart for a couple of months now, and it all paid off as students sat in the audience to listen and learn.

different, on Tuesday, February 14 in Dodds Theatre, SCOPE Comedy and Lecture brought back Female O to campus.  The line for the show was formed over an hour before, and when everyone was finally inside, Dodds was almost completely full.

SCOPE has been planning the event with presenters Marshall Miller and Rachel Dart for a couple of months now, and it all paid off as students sat in the audience to listen and learn.  “The Female Organism” program teaches many aspects of female sex education and women’s empowerment, but the presenters add a humorous twist which has every member of the audience hanging onto every word.  The program brings both sides of the story, from the male and the female perspective, to help students understand the subject.

Miller and Dart were a perfect pair as they explained numerous aspects of the subject.  Being a man and woman team gave them open range on what they could talk about because they could present on both sides of the matter.  In the lecture, they talked about both men and women making the right sexual decisions for themselves, such as being safe and healthy, when the right time is, and more. They also talked about how both partners, in any relationship, need to be patient and willing to compromise with each other and what each can do to help achieve orgasm.  It really was a program for both males and females.

But the show didn’t just talk about and show pictures for female orgasm; they also talked about where students can get their images and ideas of sex.  Miller and Dart touched upon information about sex that we get from the media, especially T.V. and magazines.  Magazines have those articles about rare cases of interactions and T.V. can emphasize the imagination.  The presenters put out the flames on these subjects and gave students alternatives to research ways of healthy and safe sex practices and where they can find useful information and advice.

This event brings crowds every year and every year students walk away with so much information to help them.  SCOPE loves bringing “The Female Orgasm” to campus and seems to have made it a yearly tradition for the past couple of years.  Let’s hope that it remains popular on campus and we see this program come back for another year!
