Harvard approves campus club dedicated to BDSM and other kinky sex

Obviously, the Hasty Pudding Club wasn’t cutting it for some students at Harvard University, who had—shall we say?—more adventurous tastes. So they started their own campus club. They could have called it the “Tasty Pudding Club” but instead dubbed it “Harvard College Munch.” This morning, the Committee on Student Life welcomed the new organization with open arms.

You may be wondering why that’s surprising. The answer is that the common bond between members of Munch (there are currently 30) is a passion for kinky sex.

The Harvard Crimson reports that the seven founding members of Munch begin meeting last October at one of the university’s dining halls for a meal and a discussion of exotic sexual practices.

None of the students interviewed for by the press were willing to share more than their first name, suggesting they feel they have something to hide. One, who introduced simply as “Marie,” told the New York Observer she enjoys “bondage, handcuffs, and ice play,” adding, “I’ve been hit with a riding crop, a belt, a paddle, canes, a flogger. Floggers are my favorite.”

Says the group’s founder, “Michael”:

If you come to campus and you have the sexual interests we represent, you may not even suspect that such a group exists. Pretty much everyone who joins this club always thought they were alone.

Hard to imagine why that would be.

Now that Munch is official, the group can apply for grants from the school’s Drug and Alcohol Peer Advisors organization. For Michael, the biggest advantage to being recognized comes with “the fact of legitimacy.” Our approval by the Committee on Student Life, he said, “shows we are being taken seriously.”

Sorry, Michael. Not by everyone.
