About a month ago, Professor John Michael Bailey (or as we now like to call him, Professor Fucksaw) of Northwestern University invited his human-sexuality students to an optional lecture that included a sex-toy demonstration. Controversy ensued, and sides were taken over whether what he did was educational or beyond inappropriate. I wonder who will come forward and defend LaSalle University Professor Jack Rappaport, the man who hired strippers to come give lap dances to his business ethics students. Reports are mixed, but so far no logical reason has been cited for this extra-special classroom entertainment.

Students have confirmed that three scantily clad women were present for the extra-credit seminar on the application of Platonic and Hegelian ethics, but after that their stories diverge. Some students are claiming that willing participants were given lap dances — Professor Rappaport included, while he was lecturing, no less — but others are denying any kind of touching occurred. I'm inclined to believe the lap-dance camp, if only because, well, if there are strippers present, I want them to be doing their job! The fun ended when a college official wandered into the seminar after about forty-five minutes. Professor Rappaport has been suspended indefinitely while LaSalle looks into the matter.

Perhaps the strangest part of this entire story is that all thirty students at the seminar had to pay $150 to be there. Talk about irony — business students had to pay money to attend an ethics seminar that would then give them extra-credit not only in the class, but in the entire College of Professional and Continuing Studies. On the other hand, sketchy deals and strippers are often par for the course in the world of business — so maybe Professor Rappaport is a genius after all.

Professor Rappaport? Isn't he also defending Burlusconi in the Bung Bunga trial?

The thing about Professor "Fucksaw" I don't really have a problem with. It was in human sexuality, that is the kind of thing you expect to see in that class, maybe just not live (plus it was optional for people who may have felt uncomfortable).

The business school thing was, however, entirely inappropriate.

Seems like the ethics "lesson" at the biz school was "GET PAID".

I see no problem with the Human Sexuality professor offering the optional sex toy demonstration. At my university we had the same option for my Sexual Psychology class. However, the ethics seminar seems quite out of line. If they, as a class, decided to go to a strip club together, then who cares. My issue is that there was extra credit offered that had to be paid for.

there is enough pictures in the text books that leaves little to the imagination ,so there was no need for ` live `demonstration.
