Faith KrollOh wow, will you look at this? Masturbation studies have (officially) come to college! And who's bringing it? Exhibitionists Faith Kroll, 25, and her fiance Jim Marcus, 44, brought everybody's favorite pastime into a human sexuality class at Northwestern University. That's right. Kroll performed a sexual demonstration with a machine-powered sex toy in front of a voluntary, after-school class of students. And yes, Jim brought Faith ALL the way, uh, "home" during the demo.
Faith Kroll is a self-proclaimed exhibitionist who was not paid for her demonstration; however, she enjoyed it because she's into that. However, that doesn't make her demonstration any less educational for the class, does it?
By definition, this demonstration was NOT a live sex act or a free porn show. It was not designed to arouse the students but to teach them. Just because Faith was naked doesn't make it less educational; in fact, it makes it even MORE educational! The only naked, sexual beings we ever get to see up close are usually in pornography, which is a very false representation of true human sexuality and arousal, especially for women. So calling this pornography is quite off the mark, in fact. And where do you want your kids getting their real-life sexuality lessons -- in school or on the Internet or, worse, from some lame dude?
Here's what Faith had to say via Twitter about the difference between her educational demo for classroom purposes and pornography:
the class we taught was a psych sexuality class.
It's not porn if you're teaching about the mechanics. That's the kind of stuff you hide in porn!
porn is a fantasy nothing I did was fantasy. it was as clinical as the movie that was shown in the class, but with more facts!
And folks, let's not forget, this is a college, not a high school, and these are adults. The class was completely voluntary, and the students were repeatedly told what they would be seeing.
But what about that part about Faith being an exhibitionist? Does her enjoyment of the lesson make her a less effective teacher? I don't know. I've always learned best from my more passionate teachers who really believed in and cared about what they were teaching, as Faith obviously does. And she didn't do the demo alone with no educational information to back it up. There were educators in the room teaching the coordinating lessons and answering questions.
But isn't being an exhibitionist just creepy? Well, not the way Faith explains it:
it was a fetish to do it in front of people who wanted to see it. it's specific attention that is liked, not all.
Being an exhibitionist doesn't mean someone likes all attention.
This, in fact, goes hand in hand with the lessons about sex safety and consent that were being taught alongside the demonstration. These are very important lessons for college students. Full consent should be present in every single sexual act. Always.
What more could a parent hope college tuition to cover? These kids learned about human sexuality, the workings of the female body and female arousal (great for women and men), as well as about safety and consent in a compelling demonstration that they will never forget. That's a whole lot of good learning if you ask me.
What do you think of this type of teaching? Too racy for college or critical for young, often sexually active youth?
