Princeton Approves Student BDSM Club

2.6k views

Princeton University has joined the ranks of other Ivy League universities by approving its very own kink and BDSM student group.

The Daily Princetonian reports that in early December, the school’s Undergraduate Student Government and Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students officially recognized the “Princeton Plays” group. According to the description provided to the Daily Princetonian, Princeton Plays is about creating a “safe space for students interested in non-traditional relationship” in order to “affirm that all types of safe and consensual activity between individuals is valid.”

The Daily Princetonian notes that there is a long legacy of bondage groups at Ivy League universities: Harvard, Cornell, and Columbia all have their very own bondage and kink groups.

The constitution of Harvard’s “Munch” group states that it is about providing a safe space for students “interested in kinky sexuality.” Cornell’s “Crunch: The Kinky Club” emphasizes the importance of spreading “awareness of kink culture and lifestyles.” Columbia’s  “Conversio Virium” holds events such as “Practical Consent Strategies,” “Impact Play 101,”  “Rope Basics,” and “Grounding Strategies for Triggers.”

Despite the fact that kink and BDSM are often sexual practices, a member of Princeton Plays told the Daily Princetonian the group isn’t actually all about sex.

“The focus of our group isn’t on sex,” the member explained. “Contrary to popular belief, many people in the kink community are asexual.”

While some of the Ivies have distinct kink groups, the College Fix reports that there are events at universities across the country that focus on things related to kink, such as the University of Michigan’s “Ins and Outs of Kink” workshop.
