Harvard University Will Legitimize A BDSM Club – Is That A Good Or Bad Idea?

When you think of a college like Harvard University, clubs about sex probably aren’t the first thing to come to mind – or maybe they are, I don’t know. So here’s some news that might surprise you: Harvard will be officially recognizing the once kind of secret BDSM club on campus called Munch. Is this a good or bad idea? I can’t decide.

You’ve probably heard a lot about BDSM in the past few months, mainly because 50 Shades Of Grey made it really popular, but BDSM is a group of sexual preferences that usually isn’t discussed during your typical girl bonding sesh over hot chocolate. So what is it? BDSM is about bondage and discipline, dominance and submission and sadomasichism (S&M). It’s basically about kinky sex and tends to be more rough than what you might think of as plain old hooking up. Sadism is sexual arousal from inflicting pain on someone and masochism is arousal from feeling pain. BDSM can involve things like using handcuffs and whips and more.

It might sound kind of crazy to you, but there are a lot of people out there who enjoy BDSM and here at Gurl we don’t judge people for what they like sexually. What you do during sex is a personal and private choice between you and your partner – it’s no one else’s business.

I think it’s a cool thing that a huge university like Harvard (especially considering it’s reputation) is open to accepting a BDSM club. But at the same time, is it totally necessary? Should colleges have legitimized clubs about sexual things like this? Everyone is entitled to do whatever they want to do in the bedroom, but is it a good idea for it to be the basis of a college sponsored group?

Or is this actually a big step in the right direction? I don’t think people should be made to feel ashamed for what they like sexually, so I can understand how this is kind of a victory for a group of people who might feel like they’re being judged. I think it’s a good thing that students who are into BDSM now know they have a place where they can go to talk about what they like and meet others who can relate to them. But at the same time, I can sort of understand the people that say it’s unnecessary. In the end, I’m just left a little confused. What do you think?

Do you think this is a good or bad idea? Should BDSM, or any sexual fetishes, be the basis of a club on a college campus? Or is this more of a private thing? Tell us in the comments.

    I honestly don’t know how I feel about this, because I don’t know how the “activities” could be regulated, you know? Like, I’ve heard about sex clubs in more metropolitan areas that require proof of marriage before admission, so that they people involved would be less likely to engage in sexual encounters that put them at high risk for sexually transmitted diseases, but on a college campus I’m not sure if that would be even feasible. Would they require all participants use some time of contraception? Would there be a proctor during every sex session to make sure the contraception is being used correctly? No, right?
    Sex is very important in our culture. And for a nation that is both sexually repressed and expressive, I think it’s a good idea for these students to want to show that they are not ashamed of their sexual practices because sex is nothing to be ashamed of. I think it’s a step in the right direction. However, with sex clubs of any kind, it would be imperative that they promote safe sex policies, and I’m not sure how that would be possible.

    I went to Bard in the 90s we had college funded S&M club. Columbia had one around the same time. Something happened at Columbia and their club lost funding which subsequently led to Bard changing their policy and defunding our club as well. Anyway, this is not new stuff..

    Just remember that your tuition goes into clubs like these. Clubs are meant to enhance creatively, academically and improve skills or build relationships
