Is the universe conspiring to make me want to vomit today? This is what is being taught to students at Northwestern:
Students in the popular and provocative human sexuality course at Northwestern University were invited for an optional demonstration after class on Feb. 21 in which a naked woman was penetrated by a sex toy until she reached sexual climax, The Daily Northwestern reported. About 120 students voluntarily stayed for the extracurricular activity organized by professor John Michael Bailey. Guest speaker Ken Melvoin-Berg, co-owner of Weird Chicago Tours, led the "Network for Kinky People" panel, which included several women. Before a woman onstage disrobed, students were repeatedly advised that they would see explicit content. The woman then used a machine with a graphic name to stimulate herself to the point of ejaculation, a topic that had been recently covered in class, Bailey said.
I just have a couple of questions here. It says that the woman stimulated herself to the point of ejaculation. Whose ejaculation are we talking about? If the so-called professor teaching this course is a man, what prevented him from limiting the discussion to what he really understands, namely, male sexuality? The good professor could have gotten up on the stage and penetrated himself with a toy to the point of ejaculation. Is there a reason why that wasn't done? Is there a reason why a woman was asked to make a spectacle of herself but no man was requested to do the same? Aren't students equally interested in the workings of male sexuality? Or do we still imagine female sexuality as mysterious and incomprehensible? Why are the feminist organizations at Northwestern not asking these questions?
And my last question. I heard that Northwestern was considered a good school. Does anybody still believe that? I know I don't.
