Live sex show spices up college class

2011-03-04 08:50
Chicago - No, it wasn't a Monty Python sketch. A human sexuality class really did get a live sex show in an auditorium at Chicago's Northwestern University.

The topic of the day was bondage, swinging and other fetishes. Then, after the class was officially dismissed, students were told they could stick around for a demonstration of sex toys and the female orgasm.

About 100 students - and apparently one of their mothers who was sitting in on the class that day - were in the auditorium when an exhibitionist couple offered to perform.

Most stayed to watch as the woman undressed on stage and her male partner brought her to orgasm with a device that looked like a machine-powered saw with a phallic object instead of a blade.

Sex toys

"It is probably something I will remember for the rest of my life," said student Justin Smith, 21.

"I can't say that about my Econ 202 class and the material that I learned there."

Once the demonstration began, Smith said, "there was a lot of covering of the mouth like 'Oh my gosh.' It was pretty quiet... I didn't really see people take affront, but they were engaged with the experience."

Faith Kroll, 25, said she had planned to simply answer questions and show off her sex toys but was game to demonstrate in the flesh after the students were shown an "absurd, clinical" video.

"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 told the Chicago Sun-Times. "The students seemed really intrigued."

Appropriate pedagogy

Psychology professor John Michael Bailey said he initially hesitated, but decided to allow the public sex act.

"My hesitation concerned the likelihood that many people would find this inappropriate," he wrote in a statement. "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."

The university initially defended the risqué display, with a spokesperson saying in a statement that it "supports the efforts of its faculty to further the advancement of knowledge" even though some of the topics may be "controversial".

But as the news went viral on Thursday, the university's president issued a statement saying he was "troubled and disappointed by what occurred".

"I feel it represented extremely poor judgment on the part of our faculty member," North-western University President Morton Schapiro said.

"I have directed that we investigate fully the specifics of this incident, and also clarify what constitutes appropriate pedagogy, both in this instance and in the future."

    If I had that in my college I will never miss a day

      Andy49 - 2011-03-04 21:31

      & you would never learn anything either, that's assuming that you are teachable.

      Redwine - 2011-03-05 10:10

      I doubt you even completed school but you sure never miss getting the first comment on any sex subject you f-cking pervert. Must be playing with yourself all day long.

      Law Abiding - 2011-03-05 15:59

      At least the class paid attention.

      MrMojoRising - 2011-03-05 22:46

      Redwine, what's your problem? The guy made a joke, get a sense of humour for crying out loud. I didn't go to all my classes either, didn't stop me from getting my degree.

  • GT - 2011-03-04 09:22

    Adults making adult choices, isn't that what university is all about?

  • Billy - 2011-03-04 09:37

    Can we please have this in SA? Then I'd go back to studying

      ColinG - 2011-03-04 10:29

      I wonder what exactly you would be studying

      BigPig69 - 2011-03-05 07:23

      Depends who and what's on stage eh.....

  • focus.ntfc - 2011-03-04 09:51

    I wonder if they offer burseries?? ..... *smile*

      Miserable Oldgit - 2011-03-04 11:41

      Not to people who can't spell.

      JCTF - 2011-03-04 16:47

      lol oldgit

  • Vinnie - 2011-03-04 09:57

    Gr8 - 69 @presh & gt To see a demo & having the choice - that's why it's called further education for adults

    This country is still so far behind in terms of having the open mind required. I keep getting my application for a professional bra fitter at woolies turned down and i blame this celvinistic society!

      rade8408 - 2011-03-04 11:30

      Enjoy handling all those over 50 saggy stretch marked boobs.

      apple - 2011-03-04 12:10

      @rade8408 you obviously have no idea what you are on about, this is 2011 - not prehistoric. The majority of women over 50 are absolutely gorgeous with as little saggyness or stretch marks on 'boobs' or anywhere else as most 20 year old women!!

      Gatta - 2011-03-04 15:23

      @flinger - it's CALvinistic (not celvinistic), named after the church reformer Calvin. I would suggest if you comment about something, make sure you know what you are referring to.

      brokennews - 2011-03-04 16:09

      @apple Yes you keep thinking that..

      Umfubi - 2011-03-04 17:16

      Dream on, apple.

      Jenna - 2011-03-06 14:57

      Gatta, I had no doubt as to what Flinger was referring to, how did he manage to confuse you?

  • Zizu - 2011-03-04 17:33

    well this is just sick!!! sex is something natural but unfortunatelly we are taking it far and we are making it look bad! what a shame for human being! animals will be wondering about us! we became a such strange creature!!!!

      abrham - 2011-03-05 14:23

      hallo - we are animals

  • Kiff - 2011-03-04 17:45

    Why is it a problem to show things that are natural and its not a problem to show the end results of things that are unnatural i.e. bodies of murdered victims and the like?

  • Blikskottel - 2011-03-04 18:00

    Gives the idea of coming to class a whole new meaning.

  • Chris - 2011-03-04 18:20

    In za we have something similar - it's called Sex for Marks!

  • ALCAB - 2011-03-04 22:41

    Students not so bright as they have to be taught what comes naturally. - 2011-03-05 07:22

      Couldn't say it better myself!!! Imagine that! Someone has to teach you how to do the dirty.....

      Jakestefer - 2011-03-05 12:27

      Are you guys stupid? Human Sexuality is an important field of study. Where do you think Sex Therapists come from?? They're not taught how to have sex! As for all the comments about it coming naturally: Just the need for sex therapists and letters to advice columns in magazines from Huisgenoot to Men's health is proof that it doesnt come all that natural to everyone.

  • Michel - 2011-03-05 05:06

    Hahaha, loved the comments! personally I wish I was back in school ;)

  • equatorenergy - 2011-03-05 07:10

    I really don't understand what all the fuss is over this; it certainly doesn't sound like lurid pornography. Lets face it there are plenty of people of both genders who could do with instruction into the art of their own and each others orgasm. It is the duty of universities to instruct and encourage questioning in the next generation of researchers and therapists in sexual matters. My wife and I have been married for 15 years and have 2 kids; if we didn't still have an active sex life I reckon the stresses and strains of life would have split us up years ago.

  • munchkin.ross - 2011-03-05 08:15

    Cool, they should have also did a live fetish show.

  • Gurkan - 2011-03-05 12:22

    JM would fail this class, just as he failed his wood work!

  • Mickey - 2011-03-05 16:47

    Zuma's wifes will be the first student's.

  • Gobsky.Raging.Bull - 2011-03-06 11:12

    To the people against this: So it's fine to show animals mating, but it's not okay to show humans in the act :P? The hypocrisy hahaha

  • Rudi - 2011-03-06 16:58

    Great idea. Real life show on how to ruin your family. Why stop there. What about a life abortion, an aids victim in his last stages and a few pedophiles busy with a few washout kids from broken families

  • philip.oraski - 2011-06-20 13:39

    alot depends on the maturity level of the audience. i remembered our professor talked to us about the tenga sex toys from about their design but it went well...
