    A former porn star conducted a week of sex education at the University of Illinois, including an "orgasm workshop."

    A University of Illinois residence hall reportedly brought in a former porn star to educate student residents in a week-long sex education seminar.

    The program, which began Feb. 3, featured former porn star Annie Sprinkle and ended Thursday with an "orgasm workshop," according to a blog post by campusreform.org.

    The program, hosted by resident community Unit One, included speeches by Sprinkle about life as a porn star, a presentation on "Eco-sexology," a free sidewalk sex Clinic, and a screening of "Annie Sprinkle's Amazing World of Orgasm."

    The week reportedly involved hands on, but not nude, participation from U of I students and was funded with student fees paid by residents of the community, the blog reported.

    Sprinkle, an internationally known artist, visits colleges around the country to teach sex education and her work is frequently used in educational programs and equal rights campaigns.

    This seminar is not the first time she has presented at U of I, as she spoke at the school nearly two years ago, but as she expanded her sex talks to the campus' Allen Hall at the end of the week, community members and students had mixed reactions to the racy films and clips, the Daily Illini reported.
