Psychology junior Holly Kerr is the president of the Longhorn Advocates for Communication, Education and Sexuality, which promotes sexual health on campus.Kerr is a reader of Savage’s column and looks forward to the premiere of “Savage U.” “I think in the United States, most parents shelter their children from their own sexuality,” Kerr said.
“When people are intimidated by something, they act brave and bluff it,” he said.
“There’s this idea that it all should just kind of happen, but we need to approach sex thoughtfully and with information.” UT’s health education coordinator Guli Fager is excited about the show’s potential impact to remind society that college students are often neglected and forgotten in the sexual education debate.
She believes that Savage’s 20 years of experience as a columnist and his funny approach to sex is easy for the college audience to relate to.
“I think this show is a good reminder that while sex is something to enjoy there are also really scary parts, and a show like this is an opportunity to talk openly about sexuality,” Fager said.
Savage brought Hutchinson as a co-host on the show not only to monitor his rambling-prone mouth, but also to challenge him and provide another opinion to the show.
