Wildcats, Sex Toys, and BDSM…oh my!

Jim Marcus hugging his fiancée Faith Kroll after penetrating her?

Professor John Michael Bailey teaches the popular course on human sexuality at Northwestern University.  As of right now, his voicemail box is full and he is on a few people’s shit-list.

On February 21st, after a class session focused on kinky sex, Bailey offered to let students stick around for further discussion, videos, and guest speakers. About 600 students are enrolled in the class this quarter, and over 100 students stayed for the extra info session. Boy, were they in for a surprise.

Four members of Chicago’s fetish community were invited to campus to discuss the topic of BDSM, or bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism. Jim Marcus and his fiancée, Faith Kroll were both present, and were dissatisfied with the discussion and video shown about female orgasm. The couple was determined to prove that female orgasm is indeed a real thing, therefore Kroll laid on a towel on stage with nothing but a bra on, as her fiancée stimulated her with a motorized sex toy.

Students were reportedly warned multiple times beforehand that they may be exposed to explicit material, and they were welcome to leave at any time. Some students were simply shocked by what unfolded within seconds, while others took advantage of the live porn, and moved closer to get a better view. Obviously, very few objected to the demonstration since they are horny college students choosing to take a sexuality course. Justin Smith, a 21 year-old senior, was shocked by the incident but was not opposed and he even went on to share the story with his grandmother.

“My grandma was like, wow, Northwestern is a little bit different then when I went there.” Smith also said “It was for me academic like everything else”.

As expected, Prof. Bailey is under a lot of heat from university administrators, concerned parents, and the media. It seems from interviews and released statements that he is sticking to his guns, that the demonstration was related to class discussion.

“The demonstration, which included a woman who enjoyed providing a sexually explicit demonstration using a machine, surely counts as kinky, and hence is relevant.”

This dude is one ballsy professor, and I know he has some excited students who will now be attending EVERY optional lecture. Maybe Rihanna will be the next guest speaker, discussing how whips and chains excite her. So what do you think, did Professor Bailey cross a line, or is he the man?
