Kinky University

There’s an institution in Japan called Kinki University. “Ooh, kinky!”
Now, I want to get a scholarship to that place. I wonder what they teach?
“I’m taking a masters degree in light bondage.”

Kinki University, while sounding like the title of a seventies porno film, is in fact a prestigious University in the Kinki region of Southern-Central Honshu in Japan (an area which is also home to the worryingly-named and rapidly-aging pop duo, “Kinki Kids”).
Tragically, according to the delightful blog, Mari’s Diary, the name of Kinki University is to be changed, to attract more international students who might not take the place seriously under its current name. This is misguided- I think foreign students would love to go to Kinki University just for the T-Shirts.

    Their mascots is the sadistic mistresses?
    Want info on scholarships? just ask me, I’m becoming an expert.
    If they got a course on bondage (actually it’s practically possible as bondages is seen an art by some people in japan … like the photograph Araki) I’m signing for it.

    Haha! I like Araki actually. Funily enough, they did have a page about scholarships for foreign students on their website. But no mention of bondage.

    No Kinki mascot as far as I could see (beavers would have been good. Or cocks!) , but there are a lot of weird mascots for Japanese teams, so I may well have to write about that soon.

  5. I did my PhD at Kinky U. right after I finished up my undergrad work at The School of Hard Knocks. Needless to say, the graduate work was much more rewarding.

    the all knowing wikipedia tells us that the American Football Team at Kinki U. is the
    Kinki Daigaku Devils … I’m a bit disappointed.

    The Kinki Devils – that’s amazing!

    Big, yes, but prestigious?! Maybe only among its own graduates and faculties.

  9. roaf says:

    Yeah, I made up the “prestigious” because I felt bad about making fun of the University’s name. Haha!
    Do you go to Kinki University, by any chance?
