Kink Comes to Harvard as Student Group for BDSM Lovers Gains Formal Recognition

A Harvard student club that has been meeting stealthily for over a year to discuss matters of bondage and discipline is set to receive formal recognition form the university's Committee on Student Life according to The Crimson.

Harvard College Munch boasts as many as 30 active members whose sexual preferences range from dom to sub. In a Crimson exposť published earlier this year, members spoke freely of rape fantasies and force feeding. (It's a must-read, if only for such quotes as "when you tell me I'm a whore, what you're really saying is I love you.")

The organization has been forced to hold its kinky sex forums in out-of-the-way dinning halls, but approval from the university means members will eligible for DAPA food grants and can encourage recruitment through public announcements.

"It's a little hyperbolic for me to get teary-eyed and paternal about sophomores, but it's really a joy to see the experience they will have now," Munch founder Michael (not his real name) told The Crimson.

Michael, by the by, is a dom who enjoys "punishing his partner."

2. As crappy as the 50 Shades series is...

it`s nice to see the community start to get a little more mainstream acceptance.

3. Masochism would be cool if you could eroticize shit like getting up early

Balancing the checkbook.

Going to the dentist.

7. Saw a tv interview, long time ago, late at night

Where they showed some clips and interviewed the participants of a stage act featuring B/D.

One guy told about being versatile enough to play either role for a performance.
The interviewer asked which role he preceded to play.
He said the masochistic part.
I thought why? You'd be getting hurt?

But he answered my confusion by saying it was "easier".

Gad. What schulb. Made me want to beat him, just for being lazy. Yeesh.

To each his own. Bet Kkkarl likes it rough. Kinky, tubby little weasel.

8. I know at least one pro-dom with a Harvard degree.

People shouldn't feel ashamed of their sexual fantasies, so groups like this are very good and healthy for people. Shame leads to all sorts of creepy behavior. Just look at certain members of the Republican party...

19. Oddly enough, I think far more people are into being on the bottom, than the top.

That is my non-scientific analysis of the situation.

12. Good for them, but why do they need "official" recognition as a club?

Just wondering...It's not like anyone was stopping them from meeting...

Or are there already other official clubs on campus catering to milder sexual tastes??
