Sex Act Performed in Class at Northwestern University

Sex-Ed Goes Live at Northwestern University


A professor at Northwestern University went the extra mile to help his human sexuality students learn about a crucial, yet sometimes under-appreciated topic: the female orgasm. He invited a local kinky tour guide to address the class and perform a demonstration. The male tour guide and his female companion undressed, got on stage in the auditorium, and then the man proceeded to penetrate the woman with a sex toy in front of the 100 students. The tour guide's assessment: "It was a fun and educational experience," and students "seemed to be incredibly pleased" as they got closer and closer.

A university spokesman gave his surprising support of the event, saying, "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. The university supports the efforts of its faculty to further the advancement of knowledge." But the president brought things back down to Earth, saying he was troubled and disappointed.

Attendance was voluntary and five or six warnings were given. Plus the couple enjoy having sex with an audience. It all sounds consensual to me, but definitely not appropriate nor especially educational. What do you make of it?

^^okay, gagging at things being "blown out of proportion". how was anyone told in advance about this if no one knew what was going to happen until the couple got on stage? if some one came in and stabbed someone would the professor say "well, how was i to know that was what they were going to do with that knife?" grow a pair, get instructional control over your class, take responsibility, set an example; sex is not a spectator sport. providing live porn is not what NU's rep is built on.

But if the issue was orgasm and being demonstrated purely by penetration, the wrong end of the stick(!) again.

Was a little bit shocked upon hearing this, but I think I'd opt to stay if I were taking the class. You can watch all of the porn you want, but how often do you get the chance to see two strangers engaging in sex? I think it'd actually be pretty fascinating to watch..

Well I would totally be down, but only for kinky reasons. What was the lesson exactly? That some women like getting fucked by a vibrator in front of a crowd? I'm willing to bet those women are (unfortunately) in the minority.

I think that is perverted.

I'd say it's appropriate for a class on human sexuality, though I doubt you'd be missing anything crucial to your education if you chose to opt out (I would).

I think that he has the right to teach what he wants to teach, especially at the college level. If students had the right to opt out and everyone was a consenting adult, I think it's fine. Interesting, but fine.

I can remember taking this class in college as well. Like Susannah, I also did not see this when I took the course at my college! I DO recall watching a film with an 80 year-old-plus couple doing the horizontal hula. Some guy yelled out "Which one is grandma and which one is grandpa?"

Um. I went to NU, and took Bailey's Human Sex class. While I did see lots of videos of people climaxing, I did NOT see this. Wow.
