20110304-01: Northwestern Exposure
Prager H1: A Northwestern University professor held a bonus course after his popular sexuality, class called “Networking for Kinky People,” which included a sex act. He takes full responsibility for it, but admits he had no good reason for conducting it. Dennis says that the real issue here isn’t the controversy… it’s human dignity. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) compares Republicans to Hitler and Stalin for being anti-union. Dennis notes that the Left uses the Hitler comparison much more often than the Right.

20110304-02: Happiness Hour: Waiting for “X”
Prager H2: Dennis reminds that if you are waiting around for “X” to happen, in order to be happy… then you are wasting your time. Life is short. Be happy. If not now… when?! Callers share their experiences.

Prager H3: Per usual, callers set the agenda. Issues raised include: a challenge that the philosophy on the Left is based on feelings; do you think teen dating is destructive; a woman had her car keyed and Dennis’ bumper sticker ripped off her car and wants to know if she should put a new one on; what would your last meal be; and is college still a good idea for your kids?

Dennis Prager: “What good could this demonstration have achieved? We have come to the point where the human as animal is the norm.”

“This is not a matter of prudishness or anti-sexuality. It’s like being accused of being anti-science if you have any doubt about global warming. What we’re anti is the degradation of the university. If in a human biology class, they’d asked a student unclothe and urinate in front of the class. That’s not sex. We’d be opposed. There’s a certain level of human dignity that we who are called conservatives believe in.

“The issue is not prudishness but what is the university for. It is to elevate the student.”

“The argument of the professor is that they are old enough to see. They are legally old enough to see. I am old enough to see but I don’t want to go to a university to see it.”

“This tells students that sex is a recreational sport. It just makes for jadedness.”

From SunTimes.com:

More than 100 Northwestern University students watched as a naked 25-year-old woman was penetrated by a sex toy wielded by her fiancee during an after-class session of the school’s popular “Human Sexuality” class.

The woman said she showed up at the Feb. 21 lecture in the Ryan Family Auditorium in Evanston expecting just to answer questions, but was game to demonstrate. The course’s professor on Wednesday acknowledged some initial hesitation, but said student feedback was “uniformly positive.”

And Northwestern defended the class and its professor.

“Northwestern University faculty members engage in teaching and research on a wide variety of topics, some of them controversial and at the leading edge of their respective disciplines,” said Alan K. Cubbage, vice president for University Relations. “The University supports the efforts of its faculty to further the advancement of knowledge.”

The optional, non-credit demo followed psychology Prof. John Michael Bailey’s sexuality class. Nearly 600 students are in Bailey’s class this quarter, and most didn’t stick around for the after-class show, which featured four members of Chicago’s fetish community describing “BDSM,” or bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism.

“I didn’t expect to see a live sex show,” said Justin Smith, 21, a senior economics and political science major who was in the after-class session. “We were told we were going to have some people talk to us about the fetish world and kink.”
