An N.C. State University event promoting safe sex is putting away its sex toys due to a technicality in state law.
Dirty Bingo, the student-run event at N.C. State that advocates for safe sex practices, will not provide edible underwear and other sex toys as prizes for the game because of a state law about gambling events.
According to the N.C. Department of Public Safety, organizations must have a state-issued license to host commercialized gambling for prizes worth more than $10.
Lauryn Collier, president of NCSU’s Union Activities Board, said in an email that the event, which will be held today, sparked a backlash among parents after they learned that their children could win sex toys.
But she said the board is not withholding the sex toys as prizes because some considered them offensive.
