Harvard approves student club dedicated to 'kinky sex'
Harvard students will soon be able to share the details of their bedroom proclivities in a school-sanctioned club for scholars who like kinky sex.
An informal group that calls itself "Harvard College Munch" began meeting last year in the dining hall to discuss the sexual ties that bind them, and it is on the brink of gaining recognition from the school's Committee on Student Life, Fox News reported.
The committee expects to approve the group, along with 14 other student organizations, on Friday, according to The Harvard Crimson.
For charter members, such as one the school paper identified only as "Michael," the recognition means future generations of students will be free to talk among themselves about all their nocturnal adventures.
"It's a little hyperbolic for me to get teary-eyed and paternal about sophomores, but it's really a joy to see the experience they will have now," Michael said.
In joining other student organizations, such as the Harvard Undergraduate Mathematics Association and the Harvard Undergraduate Maternal Health Initiative, the new, 20-member group will be allowed to apply for grants, openly recruit members and promote their events.
"If you come to campus and you have the sexual interests we represent, you may not even suspect that such a group exists," Michael said, adding that recognition "shows we are being taken seriously."
Harvard spokesman Jeff Neal said the school recognizes more than 400 independent student organizations, and the groups are required to submit an organizational constitution and agree to the school's nondiscrimination and anti-hazing policies. Then, their fate is decided by a committee composed of students and administrators.
