Porn, sex toy company Adam & Eve sponsoring chair for University of Minnesota

Categories: Sex
Sex toy company Adam & Eve is giving the University of Minnesota an endowed chair.

Wait, let's rephrase that. Adam & Eve, a company that specializes in pornographic movies and sexual aids, is helping University of Minnesota administrators with a certain position.

Sorry, once more. Adam & Eve is giving tens of thousands of dollars to the U, to help sponsor the Joycelyn Elders Chair in Sexual Health Education at the University of Minnesota Medical School. There, that's better.

The chair, named for former U of M Medical School intern Jocelyn Elders -- the U.S. Surgeon general for  Bill Clinton who was forced to resign after saying sex education should encourage masturbation as a healthy activity -- will receive around $50,000 from Adam & Eve, which touts itself as a longtime proponent of safe sex practices, according to the Star Tribune.

The one-of-a-kind faculty spot, which also received more than $2 million from 274 less-interesting donors, will open in five years.

Adam & Eve marketing director Chad Davis told the Star Tribune the donation was right in line with the original intent of the company when it was founded in 1970.

"We support sexual health education,"  Davis said. "That's how we started, distributing condoms. We believe in safe sex and people being educated about safe sex practices."

Eli Coleman, the director of the Program in Human Sexuality at the Medical School explains in the company's press release that, thanks to the faculty chair, the program "will be able to continue its success in educating medical professionals, human sexuality research, providing clinical care, and advocating for science-based public policy."

"We are very pleased with the support from Adam and Eve," Coleman said.

The U's not the only ones pleased by support from Adam & Eve. The same press release claims 10 million "satisfied customers and 40 years of experience," which is enough to make Charlie Sheen jealous.

Thanks to fine products like Kayden's Frosted Ice Silicone Backdoor Buddy -- pictured, left -- the U of M will soon have a new faculty chair -- though you might want to check it before you sit down.
