Expect some serious discipline at Harvard University’s newest club — the first bondage and sado-masochism hotspot to win official campus approval.

Harvard College Munch, as the group is named, promises to give the student body a chance to beat misconceptions about S&M by providing “accurate understandings of alternative sexualities and kink.”

In addition to “discussions (and) screenings,” says Munch’s promotional blurb on the Harvard website, the club will feature a more hands-on approach, with “space where college-age adults may reach out to their peers.”

However, Munch will be a meeting place, rather than an actual sex club and “sexual contact of any kind” is banned at official events, according to its constitution.

The Committee on Student Life at the Ivy League college gave its approval to Munch at the end of November, along with a new comics club and mathematics association, The Harvard Crimson newspaper reported.

Munch organizers say it’s time their kinky pastime gets recognition, noting that there were already groups for women, men, gays, and “all the way to groups dedicated to abstinence.”
