Last Saturday, Yale University hosted a seminar that instructed students to be "sensitive" to bestiality, incest, and accepting money for sex.

According to, the 'Sex: Am I Normal' workshop was taught by Dr. Jill McDevitt (pictured).

Students answered questions about sex using their cell phones and viewed the responses in real time.

The survey revealed that nine percent of the students had been paid for sex, 3 percent  engaged in sex with animals and 52 percent had participated in "consensual pain" during sex.

Event director Giuliana Berry told that the workshop was supposed to teach students to respond with “understanding” and “compassion” to taboo and even illegal sex acts.

"People do engage in some of these activities that we believe only for example perverts engage in,” Berry said. “What the goal is is to increase compassion for people who may engage in activities that are not what you would personally consider normal.”

“It tries to get people to be more sensitive … to sexual diversity,” Dr. McDevitt told Campus “We’re not all heterosexual, able-bodied folks who have standard missionary sex. It’s sensitivity training. Don't judge other people, because we all have something we are embarrassed about.”

The 'Sex: Am I Normal' workshop was part of Yale’s Sex Weekend, which ran from Feb. 28 through March 3.
