The College of Human Ecology’s classes – Adolescent Sexuality, Human Bonding, and Human Sexualityundefined are the source of vital discussion and dialogue on campus about some fascinating topics that we’ll examine in Washington, DC with Cornell Professor Ritch Savin-Williams.

Following an opening reception, Professor Savin-Williams will lead a dialog about human sexuality. He will focus on changing definitions and identities, new developments on topics such as being “romantically hooked,” “mostly straight/a little bit of gay,” positive attributes of gay youth, bullying, straight “jokesters” pretending to be gay, and “types” of bisexual guys. The evening concludes with an optional dessert reception so you can continue the discussion and network with fellow Cornellians.
