Georgia men’s basketball team told no orgies, hickeys or date rape
Question of the Day
The University of Georgia has some very specific rules on sex and dating for its men’s basketball team, ordering athletes to steer clear of orgies and stick to only one girlfriend.
While conducting a study on policies colleges have for student-athletes’ social media accounts, a group journalism students at the University of Maryland stumbled upon a long list of rules by the University of Georgia that seemed to stand out from the rest:
• No means no, date rape is serious
• You don’t own your girlfriend
• Stay out of gray areas, Orgies and gang bangs are inappropriate
• Never assault or intimidate a woman
• Birth control is your responsibility too
• Don’t spend all your energy in the bed all night
• Hicky’s [sic] / passion marks should not ever be noticed by coaches
• One. Not two or three girlfriends …
The Maryland study also found a troubling issue of privacy at the school. Another section of Georgia’s policy states, “We’re paying so we’re inspecting. I can enter the dorm at any time.”
The study said that Georgia Bulldogs coach Mark Fox declined to comment through a spokesperson, and added, “None of the other policies that were examined detailed an assertion that coaches could enter dorm rooms at will,” Fox Sports reported.
