Dying to brag about how many people you’ve hooked up with in the last three months? Then you should apply to USC, where administrators are asking students to answer personal questions about their sex lives before they can register for classes.

The questions are part of Title IX compliance training meant to teach students about consent, but according to Campus Reform, some students feel the questions are a little intrusive. Among them:

 How many times have you had sex (including oral) in the last 3 months?

 With how many people have you had sex (including oral) in the last 3 months?

 If you had sex (including oral) in the last 3 months, how many times had you used a condom?

These aren’t that personal. It’s not like they’re asking what the last show you binge-watched was (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce).

Update: USC has sent us the following statement from USC senior VP for administration Todd Dickey:

USC apologizes for any offense or discomfort caused by optional questions included as part of a mandatory on-line training for students on sexual consent, misconduct and other important issues. These questions have been removed from our online-training module. All colleges and universities are required by law to provide such training, and our training was a standardized module being used by hundreds of colleges and universities across the country.
