On Wednesday night, the University of Michigan hosted a Bondage, Dominance, Sadism, and Masochism (BDSM) class called “Kink for Beginners” as part of a three-day event, Sexpertise 2014.
The kink class was offered for students to “learn about safety, communication, and other tips” and to “learn about the basic BDSM concepts.”
Sexpertise 2014 ran from February 11 to 13. All events were free and open to the public, according to the website, and were led by “researchers, inspiring community members, and talented U-M peer educators from Sexperteam.”
In addition to “Kink for Beginners,” Sexpertise had events title “Sex in the Dark” for “a lights-out, anonymous opportunity to ask your sexuality and relationship questions” (glow jewelry offered to all attendees) and “Sex Supplies” hosted by a local sex store, S3 Safe Sex Store, to “explore pleasure and sexual health in a fun and interactive workshop.”
The University did not respond to requests for comment.
The three day long Sexptertise event was sponsored by several student groups, as well as parts of the university, most notably the University Health Service (UHS) and the subsidiary UHS Wolverine Wellness.
