With the parietals in mind, is sexual activity, both committed and uncommitted, seen as a shameful thing?

The University of Notre Dame's official stance follows the Catholic Church's teachings regarding sex. That is, they uphold the idea that sex should be reserved for marriage.


I anticipate that, as on any college campus, not all students hold themselves to abstinence before marriage, but at least as far as university guidelines are concerned, it would seem that sexual activity outside marriage might be frowned upon.
