Brown U. Encourages Students to Have ‘Kinky Sex’

‘Strap-On 101’ sounds like something out of a Van Wilder movie, but, at Brown University, it’s an actual class—all part of ‘Sex Week 2010.’ As if horny college students needed to be encouraged to have more sex. But apparently, administrators feel a need to ensure that students grasp the complex ‘power dynamics’ of the bedroom and escape the bonds of ‘heteronormative’ thinking. Here is more from the Foundation for Intellectual Diversity:

The week kicked off Sunday with a showing of ‘Kinky,’ a documentary that “takes a look at issues affecting the sexuality of Black Americans and touches on religion, racism and relationships as it delves into the fascinating world of bondage, fetish and BDSM,” according to an official description. Other events include ‘Strap-On 101,’ raffles of sex toys, a workshop on sexual fantasies where ‘audience participation is highly encouraged,’ and a performance by the cabaret duo ‘The Wet Spot.’

Several University offices are listed as co-sponsors of Sex Week 2010, including: the Office of Residential Life, Disability Support Services, the Office of Institutional Diversity, and the Office of Campus Life & Student Services.

“What consenting students do in the privacy of their dorm rooms or at a frat party is their business, but for Brown to sponsor a week-long series of public events—with the full backing of the administration, no less—is another thing,” said Stephen Beale, president of the Foundation for Intellectual Diversity, an alumni group.

“We can understand that there might be some rationale for having a campus-wide discussion about such topics as safe sex and sexual assault, but we can’t imagine what administrators were thinking when they endorsed events like ‘Strap-On 101’ and an interactive workshop on sexual fantasies,” Beale said. “We wonder what parents think about Brown using their hard-earned tuition dollars to teach their children to have kinky sex.”

“This has been going on for years,” said Travis Rowley, a member of the foundation’s board of directors. “The radical sex culture at Brown is less of a cause of the university’s radicalism than it is a result of Brown’s extreme moral and cultural relativism.”
