LA CROSSE — A UW-La Crosse dorm director who offended some students and parents with an email tutoring men how to help women overcome an “orgasm deficit” has apologized and was reprimanded.
Drake Hall Director Jude Legiste sent the graphic email, which includes pejorative terms for men’s and women’s genitalia, to the nearly 300 students who live in Drake at 11:46 p.m. Wednesday with the subject line, “You Gone Learn Today!!” The contents of the email was not written by him but contained a short paper on the topic.
The 26-year-old Legiste has since learned that university officials have put a reprimand in his file, and he himself emailed an apology Sunday night.
“I didn’t think it through,” Legiste said Monday afternoon. “For me, a large part of it was to start a conversation about gender equity.”
