Helpful Tip for Professors

If, on the spur of the moment, a participant in an after-class discussion group offers to strip his partner naked and perform a sex act on her in front of your students, politely decline:

So why did he allow it to happen? It was part of an optional lecture — which came with multiple warnings about explicit content — after his human sexuality class. It featured three guests involved in the BDSM scene who were planning to talk about their kinky lifestyle. It happened that the presenters arrived early during the professor’s lecture on the g-spot and female ejaculation, both of which are scientifically controversial. When it came time for the guests’ presentation, one of them, Jim Marcus, suggested that he and his fiancée, another speaker, provide a genuine example of female ejaculation right there on the spot. After brief hesitation, Bailey agreed.

I’m not sure if this makes it better or worse. Is it better to make that kind of decision quickly, or to think it through and decide it’s a good idea?

And it turns out there was certainly no educational value to this presentation: The promised female sexual phenomenon didn’t take place.
