America’s Shameful Kali Yuga Omen: Northwestern University Allows Live Sex Demonstration in Classroom

Copyright 2011-3011 By Chase Kyla Hunter, All Rights Reserved.


A discourse by Markandeya in the Mahabharataidentifies some of the attributes of Kali Yuga:


  • Rulers will become unreasonable: they will levy taxes unfairly.
  • Rulers will no longer see it as their duty to promote spirituality, or to protect their subjects: they will become a danger to the world.
  • People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source.


  • Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other.
  • Ignorance of dharma will occur.
  • People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
  • Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.
  • Sin will increase exponentially, whilst virtue will fade and cease to flourish.
  • People will take vows and break them soon after.
  • People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
  • Men will find their jobs stressful and will go to retreats to escape their work.
  • Gurus will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings. Brahmins will not be learned or honoured, Kshatriyas will not be brave,Vaishyas will not be just in their dealings and Shudras will not be honest and humble in their duties and to the other castes.

As the end times Kali Yuga cycle rages on, I have observed, as decades pass, that what constitutes an “acceptable” amount of sexual content on television has gradually escalated with each new TV season. The “insidious gradualism” I have often referred to which is inherent in social re-engineering of entire populations, has been at work in the escalation of erotic imagery in TV for 40 years now. Where we didn’t expect to see it escalating was on college campuses.

In the 1950s, 1960s or even in the 1970s, for the most part, an aroused couple would never consider disrobing and making love on the public grounds of the town square, where cars passed and people strolled not more than 20 yards away. Neither would they have ever considered it normal under any circumstances to disrobe and perform an intimate sex act in front of college students, mostly younger than 25 years,  in a classroom setting, on the campus of a respected American university. During that cherished period in American life, the moral standards agreed upon for television usually held true for day to day life as well.

During that era most people had an intrinsic sense of decency, common sense, an innate feel for universal social mores and protocols, a civilizing ingredient to modern life which is now missing in action in the United States. We used to use the word “decorum” to describe this built-in barometer of what is appropriate and what is not. Southern women seem to be genetically endowed with an abundance of it. You will most certainly know, beyond all doubt, when you have done or said something that offends the innate sensibilities of a southern bred woman. At least that’s the way it used to be, a long time ago, just yesterday.

Likewise, the common civility and moral decency which used to be part and parcel to the backbone of the nation itself has now eroded beyond recognition.

Growing up as a kid, eight, maybe ten years old, a “screen kiss” was considered the conventional public ceiling for the portrayal of sexual intimacy between couples in the 1950s and early 60s on TV shows. “Primetime” TV hours were considered to be between 7 pm and 9:30 pm, and honored school kids and their families by “keeping it clean” until about 11:30 pm, when the kids had gone to bed. Then mom and dad, if they had the energy, might stay up late and take in part of the Johnny Carson Show. All the really adult, really sexy stuff that you could ever locate on TV would take place on the Johnny Carson Show. Up and coming Hollywood starlets were paraded before the audience for inspection, new comics tried out their jokes on middle America { Carson was from the midwest, and was beloved by middle America and the heartland} and tawdry conversations usually spilled out about twenty minutes before the closing credits. By then everyone was tired, punchy, and Carson would risk some of his more controversial material, trying it on to see what brought down the house.

Carson’s show would get a little racy from time to time, especially when guests like Dean MartinFrank Sinatra or some other pop celebrity showed up telling a few off color jokes that passed the network’s guidelines for appropriate entertainment content. When this happened the network phones would light up and advertising sponsors would promptly pull their products if someone went too far, said or did something that was pretty much universally agreed to be “over the top.”

It was an era in television and film when one’s public reputation took a marked slide in the wrong direction if inappropriate public behavior was displayed either on TV, in an interview, on screen, or in front of a camera, even casually. No one ever had to debate what sort of behaviors and comments were “over the

top” back then. Certain things were just understood, and it did not take a rocket scientist to explain what was inappropriate behavior or commentary on live broadcast TV. If a man said the word “penis” on live television in 1959, or 1963, yeah, that was over the top. Other words were on that “live TV broadcast no-no” list too. George Carlin dropped jaws and broke new ground in the early 1970s, shattering existing notions about what “over the top” was when he included every one of the “seven forbidden TV words” in his new live stand up comic act, performed in theatres, not on TV, making his comedy both notorious and lucrative beyond measure. George Carlin cursed like a sailor in front of his audiences and his fame grew from the resulting civic and social fallout.

Apparently it both appalled and fascinated Americans in the early 1970s to watch a grown man stand up on stage before a paying audience and recite the seven most forbidden words in the entertainment business, and not be hauled off to jail. Of course for us young hippies, we weren’t nearly as astounded by all this as our parents were. We’d experienced Mick Jagger, Woodstock, David Bowie and Jim Morrison by now, and we were “thus made worldly” by such rock star encounters in interesting new ways that our parents could not fathom.

Had anyone peeked into my distant future as a fifteen year old kid in the early1970s, and informed me that one day, far and away, well past the year 2000, that I would grow up to write social commentary about a respected American university allowing the performance of a live sex show, complete with fetish sex toys and a man bringing his nude partner to orgasm in front of a room full of college students, I would have considered them to be stark raving, of course. Had I known about such a future as that when I was fifteen years old it would have frightened me, for starters, grossed me out beyond that, and made me wonder if I really wanted to grow up and inhabit a future where things like that were allowed to happen.

But the day has come. I have arrived in my slow moving time machine, called the physical body, and landed in 2011, at the precise point in time and space where just such an event has taken place. The bar for what we now refer to as “civilized and appropriate public behavior” has been lowered so far, they now dig trenches to put it in. I’m not proud of writing this post, and I am not proud of citing this article below. I’m not proud of my country, and I am so far beyond appalled that the staff and faculty at Northwestern allowed this to happen, that I just about can’t think of anything to say to them, except maybe to advise someone retire from public life immediately and find a new Dean for the school who has at least one half of a brain.

I wonder: have the days long passed when Americans could be offended enough to light up phone lines,  burn up mail boxes, and organize an all out boycott of Northwestern University, the venerable institution of higher education [ ahem! ]  that allowed this spectacle below to take place? This school is supposed to be a place where parents pay good money, often working two jobs,  to send their kids to get educated so they can move out and earn their own way in life. Can you just imagine Johnny texting his dad on the golf course to tell him what he learned in his freshman class today?

Will the absolute lack of outage over this event tell us all just how low the bar has now settled? It does beg the question: how low will the bar finally drop for what is considered acceptable public behavior in the United States?

Will the next ten years see open coupling of lovebirds in McDonald’s fast food booths, in plain sight, citing their civil right to do so because a live sex show was allowed on a public college campus in 2011, no charges were brought,  no public outrage ensued, therefore they too have a right to display their affection in any way they choose, at any time, in any place, naked and using sex toys too if they feel so inclined? How immoral and uncivilized will Americans become, now that the “moral behavioral bar” has crashed four stories below the basement floor of Northwestern University?

Will the next case that comes up before the Supreme Court have to do with a couple’s right to experience open lovemaking and full nudity on public town squares, cars whizzing by, people gawking as they stand in line for the bus, high noon, broad daylight, with no fear of breaking any laws, legal or moral, and no risk of prosecution?

How low will the social and behavioral bar go for what is considered acceptable public conduct in America?

Northwestern University phone lines lit up Thursday with calls from alumni and parents of students unhappy about a live sex demonstration in an optional after-class lecture.

Morton Schapiro, university president, didn’t disagree with the callers and said he was launching an investigation into the incident. He released a statement describing himself as “troubled and disappointed” about the use of a high-powered sex toy on a naked woman by her fiancé in front of more than 100 students on Feb. 21.

“I feel it represented extremely poor judgment on the part of our faculty member,” Schapiro said. “I simply do not believe this was appropriate, necessary or in keeping with Northwestern University’s academic mission.”

The couple who performed the act, Jim Marcus, 45, and Faith Kroll, 25, were part of a group of four adults brought to speak to the students about the world of kink and fetish in an optional seminar that followed Prof. J. Michael Bailey’s popular “Human Sexuality” class. None of the speakers, including Marcus and Kroll, are Northwestern students.

Schapiro’s statement Thursday reversed a statement the university issued Wednesday where they defended their faculty as “at the leading edge of their respective disciplines.”

“The university supports the efforts of its faculty to further the advancement of knowledge,” Wednesday’s statement said.

On campus Thursday, students said the incident was old news and noted it happened in an optional after-class lecture where they were repeatedly warned about the graphic nature of the demonstration.

Facebook pages lit up in the days after the on-stage sex toy penetration, with updates like “you won’t believe what I saw in class today,” said Graham Horn, an 18-year-old freshman history major who was not in Bailey’s class. Now, students are tired of the story, he said.

“I think it’s awful the amount of attention this is getting,” he said. “I think it’s amazing that our university provided us with the opportunity to experience this. I was disappointed by Schapiro’s denouncement of the professor.”

Kroll and Marcus said they engaged in the act to help students learn that certain controversial aspects of female orgasm were real, a point they believe a video the students watched in class was not making adequately.

The live sex act featured a sex toy that was a modified version of a power tool known as a reciprocating saw, or Sawzall. The tool used at Northwestern featured a phallic attachment in place of the blade.

“It’s a BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism, masochism) toy but it’s not like a pain thing,” said Ken Melvoin-Berg, who teaches “Networking for Kinky People,” runs a Chicago sex bus tour and was being paid by Northwestern for the Feb. 21 after-class lecture, which he narrated.

Of the nearly 600 students registered for “Human Sexuality,” only about 100 stayed for the after-class lecture. After being warned, some chose to leave before Kroll stripped down on a stage in the Ryan Family Auditorium. Bailey described student feedback as “uniformly positive.”

Schapiro said school officials want to know exactly what happened, and why. “I have directed that we investigate fully the specifics of this incident, and also clarify what constitutes appropriate pedagogy, both in this instance and in the future,” he wrote.

Bailey said Wednesday it was too early to say if he regretted allowing the couple to perform for the students. He did not respond to requests seeking additional comment Thursday.

While watching a naked female be brought to orgasm by a sex toy may not have bothered many students, Schapiro was troubled.

“Many members of the Northwestern community are disturbed by what took place on our campus,” his statement said. “So am I.”
