Elon University is Offering a Self-Pleasure Course to Teach Students How to Masturbate

Today I stumbled upon an article about Elon University in North Carolina and how the school is offering a course that teaches students to masturbate. The class is offered on Thursdays at 11:45 am. Each week is geared toward a new learning technique for masturbation, helping both men and women do it just right.

I am at a loss for words. I don’t understand who in their right mind would sign up for this class? If you were really having that difficult of a time masturbating, why wouldn’t you try consulting something like Google…or a doctor? So as I understand it, this is set up like a regular class; people register, they go to class and they just learn about masturbating. I have so many questions: Would there be class assignment? What would a group project look like? Is this how we talk about sex in college now?


Though this class is totally bizarre, people seem to be actually interested since it hasn’t been cancelled yet. Two professors Liz Sheehan and Jeff Kaufman, are going to be teaching the class and I honestly would love to know what sort of curriculum they are going to be using to teach this course. I don’t know why but this reminds me of the new Showtime show, Masters of Sex, two people on the cutting edge of science trying to figure out how people orgasm and masturbate, only this is 40 years later in a college classroom.

I just can’t wrap my head around a class about masturbating, I mean if its all scientific I guess it would make sense, but they are actually trying to teach people how to masturbate correctly. If someone has questions about how to do it, who do they ask? Teachers probably can’t offer extra help or tutoring…or can they?

Would you sign up for this class? Let me know!
