Live Sex Toy Demonstration to 100 College Students Ill-Advised, Yucky
Northwestern University has come out not in favor of a recent sex toy demonstration given by a couple in front of 100 students at a human sexuality lecture, and the school's president Morton Schapiro is now calling for an investigation. How could this have happened? Well, as with anything that has to do with the public demonstration of a "high-powered" sex toy known by the brand name of "fucksaw," there's a simple explanation:
A guest lecturer had been discussing bondage and sexual fetishes during Bailey's human sexuality class. According to published reports, a couple at the lecture decided that a video the students were watching on the female orgasm was not realistic and gave a live presentation involving the sex toy.
Despite the incident having been "extracurricular" and voluntary, Schapiro feels that what was announced as a "live sex show" wasn't really in keeping with university policy. Also, kinda gross. Meanwhile, the students, who were largely "not bothered" by the demonstration, finally have something to write home about.
"It is probably something I will remember the rest of my life," Smith, a 21-year-old senior, told the Tribune. "I can't say that about my Econ 202 class and the material that I learned there."
