A New Sexual Revolt Is Underway at British Universities

...A new sexual revolution is overdue. From Britain’s consent classes to California’s affirmative-consent laws to the explosion of sexual-assault kangaroo courts on U.S. campuses, the sexual freedom of young people is being subtly but significantly corroded.
Their ability to experiment, to screw around, to negotiate the ups and downs of relationships for themselves—as adults have done for centuries—is being undermined by finger-waggers determined to throw their sexual encounters open to public and even pseudo-legal scrutiny.
Students’ sexual appetites are seen as "problematic"—the PC irritant’s favourite word. That’s why Robin Thicke’s "Blurred Lines" is banned on more than 30 campuses in Britain; why Britain’s National Union of Students rails against chat-up culture in student bars (including the making of "sexual noises"); and why American student leaders rage against fraternities and scaremonger about women’s safety: because they see sexual relationships as a minefield to be minutely policed.
