I’m a tad confused. What was the lesson here?

I’d like to know more about what he was trying to teach them. I’m not against things that are meant to be educational, but I haven’t seen in either of these articles what exactly he was teaching them with that demo. Without any explanation, it seems to me like he was just going for titillation, and sorry, that’s not what Human Sexuality classes are supposed to be about.

Hmm….ok so I understand what anal/gynecological/urological exams add to a medical school curriculum, but i can’t really understand what a live demonstration of a vibrator bringing a woman to orgasm adds to a class. Is it wrong or should it be punishable? No, it was a consenting group of volunteers and a consenting audience. Is it in poor taste and probably not appropriate? Um, yea.

@Bubu82: Now that I’ve thought about it, I’m with you. If there was a point to it (such as a medical student examining bodies), it would make a lot more sense. As it is, all the students really saw was a woman getting off. I don’t really see what that teaches them…

@Bubu82: Yea, totally agree. I obviously don’t know the back story, but I think he wanted shock value, and teaching any kind of “lesson” fell secondary to that.

Eh, it doesn’t really bother me. They are all adults and they all made the choice to go and watch the “demonstration”.

He never lied about what it was. There wasn’t a surpise among those who attended.

If anything, I think the viewers may be traumatized for life…. Tongue out

i don’t think im getting what the educational value is… i mean, if they were studying the physiology of sex, i get it – but theyre looking at the psychology of sex, so why aren’t you looking at thought patterns, not how the body reacts to stimulation

sorry – shock value was all he was going for – and not even well planned out shock value, based on his quotes in the second article that a PP put up

@littlegraykitten: I agree, and that’s why I was confused. I guess I just don’t see the point of the demonstration.  I don’t think there was anything wrong with it… just don’t see anything right with it either.

I don’t see what the big deal is honestly. Yeah it is probably way offensive to a lot of people, but the key thing is here, is that he didn’t require ANYONE to watch it, it was completely optional, people had complete control over whether or not they viewed this, so how do they have a right to complain?

People just always want to be mad about something, poor guy.

Coming from a conservative religious mormon gal that decided to wait until marriage to finally have sex….I don’t see what the big deal is.  They’re in college…They’re adults…If they don’t want to see that, then leave!  If you have a moral issue with it or think the professor is nuts for allowing it, then walk out of the classroom.  If you are interested, then stay!  I personally wouldn’t have wanted to see that, so I would have left.  It may not be the best decision the professor has ever made (to let things head in that direction.  And seems to be a bit of shock value like other bees suggested), but it was a human sexuality class.  I kid you not, my college tried to integrate a class called the Poetics of Porn into the class schedule…I think from the title alone, you would know what you’re getting yourself into.  If it’s not your think, then don’t take the class.

@PitBulLover:  I don’t know if it’s a matter of being prude.  Yes, I would have left the classroom because I wouldn’t want to see another woman have an orgasm and yes, maybe I seem/come across prude because I waited until marriage to have sex…but…without going into details, I can guarantee you my husband would say I’m anything but prude in the bedroom. lol I think there are just a lot of people out there like myself, who just have zero desire to see anything like that.

It was optional, willingly performed, and for a study. I am not seeing the problem….

Since it’s optional, I don’t have a huge problem with it, but it did take me a moment to get over the o_O factor.
