Public university adds invasive sex survey to mandatory sexual harassment training

Thanks to the Campus Elimination of Sexual Violence Act (SaVE), most colleges and universities are required to put all students and faculty through a mandatory sexual harassment training this fall. But least one public school — Clemson University — has gone a step further and included an invasive survey of sexual habits and history in the required test that accompanies the training.

According to screenshots obtained by conservative watchdog Campus Reform, the survey included questions such as, "How many times have you had sex (including oral) in the last 3 months?" and "With how many different people have you had sex (including oral) in the last 3 months?" Although the survey was ostensibly anonymous, students were required to complete it using their full names, email addresses, and student IDs.

At 11:42 last night, the university temporarily suspended the survey and announced it would return without the invasive questions.
