Lap-Dancing Strippers Perform at Extra-Credit Business Ethics Symposium


The past few months have brought a wave of collegiate indiscretions. There was the incident at Northwestern in which two people demonstrated the use of a device called the “fucksaw” in front of a human sexuality class. There was the roof-sex incident at USC. And now, a professor at Lasalle University, Jack Rappaport, is in the news for bringing three strippers to his business ethics class, where they allegedly danced around the room and gave what people outside of business ethics class might call “lap dances.”

But what were they really doing? ABC Local reports:

“I don’t know, just kind of laying on top of him. Not laying on top of him but straddling him. It was like a lap dance you could say,” said sophomore Brad Bernardino.

Assuredly, this did solve that old college problem of students falling asleep in class, but did not please the dean of the business school, who, passing by, put an end to the fun.

“We didn’t see him. He was, like, at the door. And he was like, ‘It’s over,'” said Halegoua.

The class, which was an “extra-credit symposium” at a branch campus, cost $150, not necessarily in small bills. The university, which happens to be a Catholic Christian school, is investigating. As for business ethics, we thought the name of the game was “don’t get caught.” Hopefully this class is pass/fail. In any case, we’d love to get our hands on a copy of Rappaport’s lesson plan.
