University students in south Yorkshire are being given lectures on the art of masturbation.
Not, it seems, because they’re doing it wrong, but just to give them a heightened understanding.
Student newspaper The Tab reports students are being encouraged to do independent research.
A lecture, The Art of Masturbation, is being run for English Literature students at the University of Sheffield, with works including EK Sedgwick’s, Jane Austin and The Masturbating Girl on the reading list.
The student newspaper also reports that a theory that Sense and Sensibility is an ‘extended lesbian hymn’ will also be discussed.
