People are reading smut on public transport, something I heartily endorse. Sex shops are selling "Fifty Shades" inspired kits, full of ridiculously overpriced and utterly hilarious sexual aids like fur lined handcuffs and crappy faux leather collars. Hell, the UK are even attributing the fact that they got out of the recession to sales of the book and the related sales of merchandise and sex toys!
This, my friends is what we call a sexual revolution.
So when I read about how Harvard University now has an officially endorsed BDSM club [link], I was wasn't really surprised. Amused, but not really surprised. It really was only a matter of time, wasn't it? What with the current fascination with all things kinky, this was bound to happen eventually.
Although if I was betting on a university officially endorsing a kinky club for the first time, my money would have been on Oxford. What with the Brits' proclivity towards secret societies and kinkiness in general I would have sworn that's be right up their alley.
I've watched almost every "Carry On" film that's every been made and I'm a Benny Hill fan from way back, I know what I'm talking about.
But in all seriousness, I do think it's a good thing. If clubs like this can allow people with a particular interest to connect in a way that's safe and more about the community aspect than about the sex, then good for them!
Let your freak flags fly, you crazy cats!
