Students of Texas A&M University-Kingsville go there, where no student wants to openly speak up on.
The topic that is just so hard to talk about even in a mature environment such as college.
Sex in the Dark was hosted by Ike Amaliri Jr. and had a panel of 9 students and faculty on the Jones Auditorium stage on Nov. 2nd.
“I noticed a lot of things covered up that people don’t feel comfortable talking about certain subjects and I guess for me, coming from Houston and surrounded by a variety of people, I wanted to bring that atmosphere here. Especially for sex being a very touchy subject. Sex was the perfect topic to break the ice,” said Ike Amaliri Jr., Mechanical Engineering major.
“I was skeptical at first whether to go to the Sex in the Dark, but after going I found it interesting and what people thought about what each question meant to them for example: does bad sex ruin a good relationship and etc.; very opinionated and informative as well,” said Adrian Zacarias Jr., General Education major.
The event began with a PowerPoint with questions to ask the panel and if the audience had their opinions, they were given a microphone to speak.
“I think allowing the audience’s voice to be heard was a positive notion because it gave everyone else in the audience to hear a different view point on a question that possibly the panel did not mention,” said Kevin Zarate, Counseling and Guidance major.
“I loved it. This event interacting with the audience, I was just happy to have people put there input and what they feel about the certain question being asked,” said Amaliri.
“I learned that each person has a unique definition of what a specific subject is whether it may be, sex, love, lust, or anything in general. There is no right or wrong answer. Each person thinks differently in their own way,” said Zacarias.
As the event went on, the atmosphere got lighter and livelier.
“Understanding people that we’re all the same. Regardless of being a virgin or not, experiencing in love or lust. We all think the same way; we all have our lust, our love. The only difference is who has or has not experienced it yet,” said Amaliri.
“I surely had fun. I think everyone in the audience as well as the panel enjoyed the event. Definitely hopeful for another event just like Sex in the Dark,” said Zarate.
