“Vulvas too confusing? Having trouble masturbating? Wanna please your consenting female-bodied friend?” asks the “Cum*tactics” event description posted on a college website.
The workshop will be taught by Early2Bed, a “feminist sex shop” in Chicago. It is not clear why Northwestern was concerned about the ability of its female students to masturbate.
The event is part of Northwestern’s Sex Week, which will also feature events on BDSM and a screening of “Unhung Hero,” a film about a man “born with a micropenis … on a fact-finding mission … as he confronts the stigma of having a small dick.”
The school’s Sex Week runs from April 7-12 and is sponsored by the College Feminists, the “premier feminist and only pro-choice organization” on campus, according to its website.
The orgasm workshop will be co-sponsored by the school’s Sexual Health & Assault Peer Educators group.
Sex Week organizers did not respond to requests from Campus Reform in time for publication.
More about this “higher education” event:
- “We will have free condoms, lube and candy to help you get in the mood for all of our lusty events.”
- “Sex origami, sex toys, sexy trivia, prizes and more! There’s a very small chance that you’ll have the opportunity to explore and experience all these sexciting things in one location again.”
- “For our headlining event, feminist blogger Kara Brown will discuss the importance of Beyonce’s new self-identification with feminism, the necessity of a departure from traditional/academic views of the feminist movement, and the role of sex and sex appeal in feminism.”
