KNOXVILLE - A search for a golden condom, testing for sexually-transmitted diseases and workshops on oral sex and virginity are all on tap Monday as the University of Tennessee's nationally buzzed-about Sex Week kicks off.

Student organizers will hide the elusive condom on campus this morning and various community groups - including the health department and Planned Parenthood - will set up tables along the pedestrian walkway near Hodges Library. The week's events include workshops and lectures on communication with your partner, erotic writing, sex and religion, and sexual assault.

There will be movies that address sexual issues like "Hysteria" and "Fried Green Tomatoes." There will be sex trivia on Tuesday, a frank lights-off student discussion on Wednesday and a drag show on Thursday.
