In the University of Bielefeld, women now have the opportunity to learn to masturbate, as part of a campaign for sexual self-determination organized by the Student Committee (AStA), the newspaper Die Welt reports. There are various lectures, panel discussions and workshops on the schedule, with the most unusual one being probably on female ejaculation.
A theoretical course involves not only watching videos on the matter but also attending a workshop, to which women are required to bring a hand mirror, a towel and lubricant. Participants will have the opportunity to apply what they've learned, according to the media.
"This is a bad joke," the deputy chairman of the conservative Association of Christian Democratic Students (RCDS) in Bielefeld, Philip Sagittarius, said as quoted by the "Neuer Westfalische." He added that it is impossible to have a serious scientific discussion on the gender issues "in a room with ten masturbating women."
The University of Bielefeld emphasized that the responsibility for the workshop lies solely with the AStA; therefore, the university authorities cannot ban the event or influence its content.
Social media users took to Twitter to express their astonishment and anger that such kind of workshops are financed from the pockets of tax payers.

The news that one can study masturbation in the city of Bielefeld reinforces my belief that Bielefeld does not exist.

Soon the chair for masturbation will be introduced in the University of Bielefeld. Those interested can then study the Master course on Masturbation…

Masturbation — to learn how to put a hand to it at the University of Bielefeld. Oh my God and pay taxes for such things.
However, there are those who approve the initiative.
