College Hosts BDSM Workshop


                It’s official: almost no one is able to spot absurdity anymore. Reason and logic have gone the way of the Dodo bird and the presumption of innocence.
                A porn star led a series of lectures designed to teach college students about various sexual practices at Claremont McKenna College recently. The adult film star, Mia Li, has been featured in such cinematic classics as “Everything Butt,” “Hardcore Gangbang,” “Electrosluts,” and, of course, “Kink University.” But this isn’t the reason for my opening assertion.
                One of the talks Li presented was titled “Intro to BDSM.” BDSM is an acronym standing for bondage, domination, submission and masochism, in which participants are often spanked, whipped and otherwise tortured.
  The talk was part of a Sex Week observance sponsored and hosted by…wait for it…the student group CMC Advocates for Survivors of Sexual Assault.  There you have it.
  The Sex Week event’s student organizer’s Facebook page proudly states: “We have a wide range of topics by a diverse group of sex educators, including queering safer sex and sex after trauma.” Because we all know how safe gay sex is and how important it is to mount up as soon as possible after you’ve been sexually assaulted. Get right back on that bike, sister!
 The week-long festive extravaganza is apparently funded in part by mandatory student fees garnered from the Associated Students of Claremont McKenna College. But, looking at the official Sex Week schedule, it would be a bargain at twice the price! Additional events listed include a “sex carnival,” replete with “a photobooth, mechanical bull, consent bake sale, club tabling, and a sex toy demonstration,” according to the Claremont Independent.
 I am not a prude, but I don’t even know what “club tabling” is, nor would I want to witness a sex toy “demonstration” whilst sitting amongst a group of my peers. Moreover, I’m not sure what kind of pictures the young scholars were taking in the photobooth, nor am I clear on what a “consent bake sale” entails. Similarly, I’m not entirely certain what the hell the mechanical bull’s role was in the seven-day celebration of debauchery. Was he anatomically correct?
Come to think of it, I don’t want to know. And that’s no bull.
