University holds workshop on sculpting genitals from Play-doh

Play-doh sex organ eventIf there is anything positive that can be said about a workshop held at the University of Central Florida last month it is that you cannot contract gonorrhea by touching sex organs made out of Play-doh.

Campus Reform reports that the workshop was conducted by a “sex expert” (sexpert?) from a local adult toy store called Fairvilla. It is not clear what educational value is to be derived from learning to carve genitals out of modeling clay, but the event, titled “Finals? That blows,” also included a condom hunt.

An emailed advertisement, sent out on April 16, featured an animated condom and plenty of sexually suggestive puns (e.g., “COME to the sex program,” study “LONG and HARD”).

Unlike other sex-related on-campus workshops reported in this space, this one did not have the university’s blessing. UFC Spokesman Chad Binette issued a statement reading:

This event and the email promoting it clearly demonstrate a lack of judgment. Housing and Residence Life will be reviewing its approval process for events and event promotions.

The email was sent and approved by the Apollo community staff, and the event was scheduled by Apollo community staff.

Nikki, an employee of Fairvilla, meanwhile, told Campus Reform that the UCF workshop was nothing new:

We do events for actual accredited classes like their human sexuality psychology courses and sometimes we do presentations for clubs … frequently sometimes we do presentations for any of the on-campus housing and also off-campus housing. Sometimes we co-op presentations with the on-campus Planned Parenthood groups.
