LOS ANGELES — Cal State L.A. canceled an event about sex toys – “Sex Toys R Us” – that was organized by the El Sereno college’s Gender and Sexuality Resource Center and an L.A. adult store.
Campus officials said the event, which was promoted on a flyer with the words “handcuffs,” “swings” and “#PlayTimeAtCalStateLA,” was “not appropriate.”
“This was a student-driven event, and when made fully aware, the university determined it was not appropriate, and we immediately canceled it,” CSULA spokeswoman Jocelyn Stewart said.
The university spokeswoman said there was additional concern because there are two high schools on campus.
According to CBS2, the event was being funded by students’ fee, which angered some parents, administrators and students.
Other students were more welcoming of Sex Toy R Us, and the idea of sexual (even sexual pleasure) education.
“If it’s trying to raise awareness on things people don’t know too much about, I think it’s ok,” student Paulina Rubio said.
