A noted psychology professor at Northwestern who's no stranger to controversy or unique teaching practices is being defended by NU officials and students for an after-class demonstration of a marital aid last week. John Michael Bailey, who teaches Human Sexuality at NU, staged an explicit demonstration of a device called a "fucksaw" (and our day has been made typing that) to an group of 120 students. The operator of the device repeatedly brought a non-student woman to orgasm with the fucksaw.

Bailey dedicated six minutes of his class two days later to the growing controversy on campus related to the fucksaw episode. Bailey feared that breaking out the fucksaw would put a damper on other after-class related events at NU's Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. He also stressed that the fucksaw demo was strictly educational.

Fucksaw, people.
