University of Chicago Sponsors Students' Field Trips to BDSM Club

The University of Chicago’s Risk-Awareness Consensual Kink student club, dubbed RACK, has made plans for field trips to the local kinky sex club Galleria Domain 2.
Galleria Domain 2 is the windy city’s “place to explore and satisfy your fetish, kink, leather, and BDSM fantasies.” according to GD2’s own website.

According to The College Fix, a right-leaning college newspaper, on May 6th 2014, the University of Chicago’s Student Government Finance Committee voted 5-0 to approve $300 to aid in the funding of trial memberships for students of KINK. It was pitched to the committee as an “opportunity to connect/engage with the broader Chicago kink community and to engage in BDSM activities that are not suitable/appropriate for spaces that students have access to,” according to KINK’s meeting minutes which were made available online.

In February, the university hosted a “Taste of Kink” workshop as part of its annual Sex Week activities. The event allowed students to explore “the exchanges and sensations that can be generated by floggers, rope, electricity and more,” according to the event’s agenda.

Other big name schools have also warmed to the idea of students exploring power exchange via school studies. Harvard University has a club called MUNCH that caters to students who take an interest in “alternative sexuality and kink.” Columbia University is home to a similar club. The University of Michigan hosted a BDSM class called “Kink for Beginners” as part of a three-day event, titled Sexpertise 2014.

Yale now hosts an event titled “Sex Weekend” featuring workshops and discussions on the subject, including a discussion “to learn about masochistic sexual practices such as those depicted in 50 Shades of Grey,” the best-selling erotic romance novel and soon to be feature film due out in theaters nation-wide on February 13th, 2015.
