Star Tribune metro columnist Katherin Kersten devotes today’s informative column to the student fee-supported offshoot of the University of Minnesota’s Queer Student Cultural Center that goes under the name Kinky U. Kathy reports:
Kinky U aims to reach out to groups still not fully embraced (so to speak) by the university community. It’s “a social and discussion group” for those interested in “all forms of kink, including roleplaying, leather, BDSM [bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism], and much more,” according to QSCC’s website.
“The term ‘kinky’ can include anything from biting and scratching, ‘which is pretty common,’ to power exchanges and bondage,” said the [University of Minnesota] Daily, quoting Michael Lent, the group’s facilitator.
Lent declined to be interviewed for this column. But the handcuffs pictured on Kinky U’s Web page are worth a thousand words.
Reading the column, the British invasion group the Kinks inevitably comes to mind. The Kinks’ “I’m Not Like Everybody Else” would seem to be the perfect fight song for Kinky U.
