Northwestern University defends after-class live sex demonstration (?? the world is mad!)
Sun Times ^ | 2-2-11 | Kara Spak

Posted on 03/02/2011 5:59:52 PM PST by STARWISE

More than 100 Northwestern University students watched as a naked 25-year-old woman was penetrated by a sex toy wielded by her fiancee during an after-class session of the school’s popular “Human Sexuality” class.

The woman said she showed up at the Feb. 21 lecture in the Ryan Family Auditorium in Evanston expecting just to answer questions, but was game to demonstrate. The course’s professor on Wednesday acknowledged some initial hesitation, but said student feedback was “uniformly positive.”

And Northwestern defended the class and its professor.

“Northwestern University faculty members engage in teaching and research on a wide variety of topics, some of them controversial and at the leading edge of their respective disciplines,” said Alan K. Cubbage, vice president for University Relations.

“The University supports the efforts of its faculty to further the advancement of knowledge.”

The optional, non-credit demo followed psychology Prof. John Michael Bailey’s sexuality class. Nearly 600 students are in Bailey’s class this quarter, and most didn’t stick around for the after-class show, which featured four members of Chicago’s fetish community describing “BDSM,” or bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism.

In a statement, Bailey said he hesitated briefly before allowing the public sex act.

“My hesitation concerned the likelihood that many people would find this inappropriate,” he wrote. “My decision to say ‘yes’ reflected my inability to come up with a legitimate reason why students should not be able to watch such a demonstration.”

After the demonstration, several students tried a different sex toy that gave a “titillating” but not painful shock, testing it out on their arms, said Ken Melvoin-Berg, who narrated the after-class lecture. Melvoin-Berg said the school paid him between $300 to $500 for his appearance.

Faith Kroll, the woman who stripped, was laying down on a towel when

Revolting .. God help us. Academia just corrupts and perverts any more, plain and simple. Not worth parents struggling for the thousands and thousands it takes. I hope parents there storm the admin and go ballistic.

“One of the students asked what my specific fetish was and mine is being in front of people, having the attention and being used,” she said. “The students seemed really intrigued.”

I’ll bet they were.

Of course the student feedback (from those present) was uniformly positive: all those who had any sense of decency, regard for modesty or morality, and all the women except for maybe a few lesbians, had all left, leaving only those who were happy to get a marginally free live porn show.

It’s no wonder these idiots have tenure. Why bother going to such a class? It would be cheaper to go to a sex show. How about just a never ending field trip?

Gee, ya think???

Professor: Did you like the live porno demonstration or would you rather take a comprehensive final on the conjugal habits of annelids?

Student: Uh ... that first thing you said ... And find out if the demo lady has a sister.

We spent a fortune so our son could have a Northwestern degree (in science, fortunately). This sort of thing makes the name of the university a dirty joke. Fire these people so they can go back to walking the alleys.

If this were done in public or in a bar or some venue like that it could be seen as anything from a misdemeanor to a felony. What is any different about it being done in a classroom? These two young people have been horribly raised if not sexually abused to to do something like this. And how in the name of God could any educated adult,responsible for the mental and physical welfare of young people entrusted to them allow such thing to take place?

Good point - I would assume that this little classroom “exercise” violated any number of local laws...

THIS is “higher education”? That explains everything - what a completely disgusting, criminal spectacle and how incredibly sexist. We’re done - put a fork in US.

Rotton Republics always degenerate into democracies, then tyranny and with it goes orgies, homosexuality, pederasty, child sacrifice and neglect, and then total chaos. Happened in Rome and in Greece and we are about to descend into tyranny. Note how our homosexual president (caught in a homo sex act) backs every homosexual promotional policy and promotes a book about masturbation...which is the homosexual bible. Zero is mentally sick...he was probably sodomized by Frank Davis when he was his mentor.

If you have no human dignity, it is easy to eliminate the useless ones. This is all about reducing human acts to just animal acts....to destroy the intimacy of sex in marriage so it destroys men and women relationships because is destroys respect for the body and creates irresponsible or absent parents. The next generation is lost.

Agree. Not a penny.

In fact, I simply assume....and I know I’m correct...that colleges, public or most private, including the three I received degrees from, are engaging in this kind of crap. Don’t even answer their fundraising calls.

Yes, it’s called pornography. Kids can see & learn about that for much less than a College class costs.

They are probably excellent, given that gay agenda seems to be well financed and promoted. Probably this is more valuable in this country than some electronics engineer or a physicist or a chemist. Electrons and atoms don't vote; people do.

Your view of your neighbors (and mine) is too rosy.

Who do you think demands all those perverted shows on TV? Who do you think sends donations to Northwestern? To be sure, you, I and a few other people are really, really upset by this, but the majority sees nothing wrong with this and a large minority actually likes it.

Please witness also that, in a class of 600 students, there are no complaints.

Please note also that she is penetrated in public by her...fiance. Does this couple stand a chance at intimacy?

All of this is from the gutter, but don't kid yourself: the gutter is where the vast majority of the Western Word wants to be.

The rapidity of our decline has made me reconsider my skepticism towards federal prosecution of ordinary pornography. Forced to choose between a bunch of government-subsidized pimps and a bunch of government-subsidized anti-obscenity agents, I'll take the latter.
