A "sex week" at the University of Tennessee, aimed at promoting sexual health and awareness, has had its funding slashed after Republican lawmakers launched a campaign against the event.
The event, featuring HIV testing and sexual education classes, was scheduled to take place on the university's campus from 7 April. Almost $18,000 of its funding was to come from the University of Tennessee, but $11,145 was withdrawn on Wednesday, after a campaign launched by a Republican state senator, Stacey Campfield.
Campfield said he had become aware of the event after reading an article on a rightwing website which drew attention to some of the week's racier sessions, including a "golden condom scavenger hunt" and a seminar on oral sex entitled "How many licks does it take?"
