North Carolina State University’s chapter of the Young Americans for Liberty has announced it will protest a university-sponsored giveaway of butt plugs, artificial vaginas and other sex toys.
NCSU’s “Dirty Bingo” event is scheduled for Tuesday night, and will provide students with the chance to win a variety of sex toys, condoms and lubricants. The point is to promote safe sex, a spokesperson said.
“The certified educators plan to use some of the items (those that are appropriate) to demonstrate healthy sex practices,” said Lauryn Collier, president of NSCU’s Union Activities Board, in a statement to Campus Reform.
Obligatory student fees were originally used to cover the cost of Dirty Bingo. This provoked an outcry from the libertarian student organization, YAFL, which plans to protest during the event.
“The fact that a public university is going to spend mandatory student fees on such an event is just repulsive,” said YAFL co-chair Emma Benson in a statement.
In response, UAB changed the way it was funding the event, and now claims that student funds will not be used toward the purchase of adult toys.
“We are currently in the process of securing funding from those entities to completely do away with student fees even remotely funding this event,” said Ryan Doggett, a spokesperson for the NCSU Student Senate, in a statement.
But this kerfuffle was not the end of Dirty Bingo’s problems. Since UAB does not possess a bingo license, it will be legally prohibited from giving away prizes worth more than $10.
