Northwestern U hosts event for female students who are ‘having trouble masturbating’
- The NU Sex Week is sponsored by the College Feminists and will feature an orgasm workshop and a film about a man “born with a micropenis."
Northwestern University is sponsoring an event for female students who are “having trouble masturbating.”
“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.
