MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- A U.S. company specializing in pornography, condoms and sex toys donated $50,000 to help fund a position at the University of Minnesota Medical School.

Adam & Eve, a North Carolina company that produces pornographic films and bills itself as "the largest and oldest retailer of adult sex toys in the United States," said it donated the money toward the creation of the Joycelyn Elders Chair in Sexual Health Education at the University of Minnesota Medical School, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Tuesday.

The school said the money and other donations will finance the nation's first university chair dedicated to creating lifelong sexual education curricula. The position is expected to be officially created in five years.

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