The female orgasm can be an elusive little bastard. Sometimes it comes easily, sometimes it takes work. And for some women, it takes education.

Fortunately enough for women at the University of Minnesota, if they need to be schooled on how to get off, a symposium is being offered called “The Female Orgasm.”

The class is led by sex educators Marshall Miller and Kate Weinberg, and according to the school's website, it's taught thusly:

Orgasm aficionados and beginners of all genders are welcome to come learn about everything from multiple orgasms to that mysterious G-spot. Kate and Marshall cover it all with lots of humor, plenty of honesty, and an underlying message of sexual health and women's empowerment.

According to Miller and Weinberg's website, students work in pairs, and the material is taught in a “tasteful, appropriate manner.”

And speaking of tasteful, the New York Post picked up the story, taking care to note that sometimes, people enroll in college when they are as young as 17, which we are taking to mean that 17-year-olds should only be having bad sex. But never mind that — the course cost the school $3,500, and for that, we salute them.

After all, it's a bad economy out there — if women might graduate without jobs, they can at least leave college knowing how to come.
