Bingo an 'innovative' way to discuss sex?

A North Carolina public university has stepped over the line by spending hundreds of dollars in student fees for sex toys as prizes for its "Dirty Bingo" event.

North Carolina signNorth Carolina State University's (NCSU) Union Activities Board (UAB) reportedly shelled out $304.69 for sex toys, too vulgar to mention, as prizes for a "Dirty Bingo" event. Katherine Timpf of CampusReform.org, the organization that broke the story, tells OneNewsNow the money was appropriated from mandatory student fees.

"College is so expensive now. We hear everyone talking about what are we going to do about the student debt bubble, and I think maybe a good first step would to not be spending these student fees, their hard-earned money, on playing Bingo to win sex toys," Timpf contends. "It seems pretty obvious to me this is one of the things they could cut out from the budget."

The university views last night's event as an "innovative" way to discuss sexual health. Timpf says that is ludicrous.

"I don't see at all how this would promote sexual health whatsoever," the CampusReform spokesperson argues. "To play Bingo for sex toys -- I don't really see the benefit in that for anybody whatsoever. If that's something that a bunch of kids wanted to do on their own time with their own money, you can't really stop that. But to use student funds for this -- it makes no sense."

A spokesperson for NCSU did not return CampusReform's multiple requests for comment, including whether there was an age requirement for attending the event.
