Northwestern “F**ksaw” Professor Will No Longer Teach Class on Human Sexuality

The Northwestern fucksaw incident is finally coming to a close. Professor J. Michael Bailey will officially no longer be teaching a class on human sexuality after he featured a live sex demonstration involving a toy known as a “fucksaw” in an optional lecture series this past semester. In fact, the institution will not be offering any courses on human sexuality next academic year.

On February 21, Bailey invited a man and women to demonstrate female ejaculation to about 100 students who had opted to attend the session. Ejaculation was achieved using the make-shift sex toy. Although Bailey initially defended his choice to feature such a demonstration, he quickly made a reluctant apology.

Alan Cubbage, Vice President for University Relations, released the following statement:

Northwestern University’s Department of Psychology will not offer a course in human sexuality during the 2011-12 academic year. That course was taught previously by Professor J. Michael Bailey, who will 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. At Northwestern University, the dean of a college/school has the right and responsibility to determine course assignments. TC mark

    As a Northwestern student, I'm getting really tired of this “fucksaw incident” thing.

    Whatever.  EVERYONE in the audience saw nothing wrong with the demonstration.  The people who complained were those who DIDN’T attend.  Typical.
