Harvard Sex Week: 13,000 condoms, 1,200 bottles of lube, and ‘BDSM in the dorm’ lesson

Harvard University will soon mark its annual “Sex Week” observance, which this year features a workshop on how to navigate sex involving bondage and sadomasochism in the dorms – complete with whips and floggers.

The weeklong observance also boasts “13,000 condoms and 1,200 bottles of lube” to distribute.

The Ivy League institution will host the workshops starting this Sunday and continuing through Nov. 14, events “dedicated to empowering the Harvard community to explore their experiences with love and sex by providing comprehensive programming addressing a wide range of issue relating to sex, relationships, dating, sexual health, and sexuality,” according to its website.

In preparation, an adult industry company sent the college “13,000 condoms and 1,200 bottles of lube,” a fact touted on Harvard Sex Week’s Facebook page with the caption: “Sex week is really gearing up! “

Additional Sex Week sessions are slated to focus on masturbation, sex and religion, consent, feminist porn, sex letter writing, sex toys, “Decolonizing Desire,” and others topics.

The description of the “Work Hard, Fuck Hard: The Guide to BDSM in the College Dorm Room” event, set for Nov. 15, asks on its Facebook page: “Want to get kinky in the bedroom but don’t know how to bring it up? Disappointed by Fifty Shades of Grey but not sure what BDSM is really all about? Join us for a discussion on what it’s like to be part of the BDSM scene, as well as some cool demonstrations with whips, floggers, and more!”

Student organizers did not respond to The College Fix’s requests for comment.
