Kent State University splurged on its Hawaiian-themed sex week, which cost $17,000 in mandatory student fees.

The Ohio public university hosted a variety of racy events last week under the auspices of the theme “Let’s Get Lei’d,” an ode to sex week’s twofold purpose of celebrating Hawaiian culture and distributing sex toys to students.

The festivities began last Monday with a Condom Couture Fashion show that involved students showing off original garments made of condoms, according to Campus Reform.

Tuesday was Sexy Beach Party day, and Wednesday featured an educational workshop on the female orgasm. Instructors gave tips to women and their partners on finding “the mysterious G-spot,” and having multiple orgasms.

KSU also hosted a drag show and sex toy giveaway.

Sex week organizer Kyle Hovest, a KSU senior and member of the Interhall Council, said the events aimed to educate students about sexual health and disease prevention.

“Our goal is to give residence hall students a broad spectrum of information,” he said in a statement to the Akron Beacon Journal.

But even Hovest couldn’t come up with an educational justification for the drag show.

“It’s not incredibly educational, but you can learn at a drag show,” said Hovest. “Even though they’re making jokes, they’re telling the truth. Drag queens aren’t afraid to talk sex.”

A spokesperson for the university told The Daily Caller that the money spent on sex week comes out of fees that students pay to live in residence halls and added that student representatives get to decide how the money is spent. Despite the sensationalist title, sex week programming includes plenty of educational content, the university said.
