Sex on campus, after class

What this country needs is more thoughtful discussion of controversial topics.  Take that sex demo at Northwestern U
“We had kind of a duty, I think, to educate these students in a functional and effective way. Psychology students… and my other reason for doing this– if these were going to be psychologists then they have a need to know about this esoteric knowledge that could help someone in the future,” said [Jim] Marcus [male member of the demo team].
John Michael Bailey, the professor in question, is for thoughtful discussion, as above.  He considers it “a cornerstone of learning.”
For one student:
“It reminded me of how comfortable you can be with your body because she [the female member] was unfazed,” said Sam Hazlett, Northwestern student.
At first NU, anonymously thru a spokesman, was not fazed either.  Then alums and others chimed in, and so did the president, finally:

On Thursday in a second statement, the university’s president said he was “disappointed” and “disturbed.”

“It represented extremely poor judgment on the part of our faculty member,” said President Morton Schapiro. “I simply do not believe this was appropriate, necessary or in keeping with Northwestern University’s academic mission.”

In addition [besides], outraged parents and alumni [had] been calling the school.

It’s the joy of sex, mechanically produced.  Who said anything about love?

Later: The prof apologized.

  1. The linked article says NU law professor, named Koppelman, doesn’t think Bailey should lose his job because “no one can say that any clear line was crossed.” Maybe the good professor should take a refresher on Illinois’ criminal code, especially the section headed “Public Indecency.”
