The ultimate vibrating dildo...



Northwestern University Cancels Human Sexuality Class After Explicit Sex Toy Demonstration - FoxNews.com

Northwestern University professor John Michael Bailey allowed a guest lecturer to narrate the use of a sex toy -- referred to as a "f---saw" -- on a woman who was not a Northwestern student during a Feb. 21 after-class presentation. The motorized device, seen here, was equipped with a phallus during the demonstration. (MyFoxChicago.com)
Northwestern University students will not be offered a course on human sexuality during the upcoming school year following an explicit after-class demonstration involving a woman and a motorized sex toy in February, school officials announced Monday.

Professor John Michael Bailey, who has taught psychology at the Illinois university since 1989, said the Feb. 21 after-class presentation on "networking for kinky people" to his 600-student human sexuality class was entirely optional. Students were also warned prior to the demonstration that the material -- which would not be covered on examinations -- wasn't for the faint of heart.

On Monday, Alan Cubbage, vice president for university relations, said Bailey will now have "other teaching assignments" in the coming year.

"Courses in human sexuality are offered in a variety of academic departments in other universities, and Northwestern is reviewing how such a course best fits into the University’s curriculum," Cubbage said in a statement. "At Northwestern University, the dean of a college/school has the right and responsibility to determine course assignments."

Bailey allowed a guest lecturer, Ken Melvoin-Berg, to narrate the use of the sex toy -- referred to as a "f---saw" on a woman who was not a Northwestern student during the presentation. Melvoin-Berg, who operates a local sex tour, told MyFoxChicago.com that the woman's boyfriend assisted in the demonstration, which he described as "appropriate" and educational.

"The demonstration, which included a woman who enjoyed providing a sexually explicit demonstration using a machine, surely counts as kinky, and hence, as relevant," Bailey said in a statement issued to FoxNews.com in March. "Furthermore, earlier that day in my lecture I had talked about the attempts to silence sex research, and how this largely reflected sex negativity … I did not wish, and I do not wish, to surrender to sex negativity and fear."

Northwestern University President Morton Shapiro later said he was "troubled and disappointed" by the demonstration and called for an investigation following reports of the incident.

It was optional, it was clear what was going to happen, it didn't hurt anyone.

Where is the issue again?

Northwestern University is a private research university in Evanston Illinois. There is no issue. They hired the guy, they can decide what they want their staff to "research."

The University has really become a "classy" place since the 60s... A place of "higher learning" that we can all hold in high esteem.

If you want to go to a dildo bar in the windy city, I'm sure there are plenty on the south side that one could attend and have a good time for $40 bucks, why pay $40,000 to attend Northwestern?

I actually finished making some prototypes for the ultimate dildo a few months ago for the Adult convention in Vegas.

The best part of my work is that I get to see everything well before it hits the market, I'm a little sad I haven't received any free samples yet!

It should be on the market soon.....

Wouldn't a reciprocating saw be a bit loud - eventually your neighbors in the condo complex are going to figure out you aren't really remodeling every night at 11...

"Reciprocating" describes this device far better than simply "vibrating"...


Five stars.

Sure, and that's why the university president is investigating the research project. The university decides, not the individual employees. The line between paying tuition for voyeuristic sex demonstrations and prostitution probably isn't much more distinct than the line between performing a public sex act and research into human sexuality. In any case those paying the money for tuition deserve to clearly understand that this type of reasearch is an element of the education the institution provides.

The one that George Clooney made in "Burn Before Reading" had me in stitches.
