University of Louisville’s (UofL) held a discussion Monday about how to have “safe and pleasurable anal sex” as part of its week-long sex education program.

“Bang: Sex Ed Week at UofL” is being held this week and features a daily event to “promote sexual health education, destigmatize conversations around sexuality, and deconstruct shame,” according to its website. The week kicked off on Monday with a lesson in “Anal Sex 101” at the Cultural & Equity Center, during which students could learn about how to have “safe and pleasurable anal sex.” (RELATED: ‘Rope Will Be Provided’: University Sex Week Features Events In Bondage, ‘Ethical’ Pornography)

“There is a lot of stigma around anal sex, from who engages in it to the risks involved,” reads an Instagram post promoting the event. “We’re here to demystify this sexual activity and discuss the ways in which stigma, cultural norms, and misinformation might impact butt play!”

The event flyer poses questions about “poppers,” whether people who engage in anal sex “have to douche” and how people can “figure out if [they’re] a top of bottom.”

“Remember that sex is rarely just about what you do between the sheets (or anywhere else ;), it involves communication, social pressures, sexual health, pleasure, power, and much more,” the post reads. “So leave behind shame and bring a friend. We promise you’ll learn something new!”

Monday’s event was hosted by the LGBTQ Center, BRICC Coalition, and the Office of Health Promotion, according to the flyer. It was for those are are a “fan” of anal sex or “just curious.”

Other events include a discussion on “Christianity & Sexuality,” which touched topics including stigma, masturbation and monogamy, as well as a panel on safe sex and a sex-based trivia night, according to the lineup. The week concludes with “a series of games in the ultimate test of love.”

UofL, the LGBTQ Center, BRICC Coalition and the Office of Health Promotion did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
