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.What words and phrases come to mind? Decency. Boundaries. Common sense. All three of them are lacking.
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.
Update, 3/5/11: I guess it got a little hot in the kitchen:
A Northwestern University professor has apologized for allowing a couple to demonstrate the use of a sex toy after one of his classes.
But J. Michael Bailey said Saturday that he sees "absolutely no harm" in what happened.
The psychology professor said he regrets upsetting people and hurting Northwestern's reputation.
