MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- A casino night at Central Michigan University will feature "5 Card Foreplay Poker" and "STD Bingo" where the winnings are condoms, the university said.

The private company running Condom Casino Night, scheduled for Wednesday at the Mount Pleasant, Mich., campus, said it would be a "highly interactive" program "arousing college campuses around the country," the conservative CampusReform.org website said.

CMU outsourced the event to the private company, the website said.

In a video, a spokesman for the Condom Casino Tour says organizers try to avoid topics such as morality in its programs.

The tour "doesn't talk about morals, we don't talk about ethics," the spokesman said.

University administrators didn't respond to CampusReform.com's inquiry about how much the school was paying for event, but a tour representative said the cost ranges from $2,500 to $3,500.

"The Program Board has decided to bring that is a poker-room type thing ... prizes are going to be different kinds of condoms," a representative from the Campus Program Board, which is paying for the event, told CampusReform.org.

Condom Casino Night is part of the board's Sex Education week.
