Professor Pervo’s Subsidized Wanking Class and the Higher Education Bubble

Posted on | July 16, 2012 | 21 Comments

The people pushing “comprehensive sexuality education” in your child’s school see nothing amiss in Tom Kubistant’s pedagogical methodology:

A college instructor at Western Nevada College is accused of requiring students to masturbate and publicly reveal personal sex-fantasies in order to pass a “human sexuality” class, according to a federal complaint filed in U.S. District Court last month.
Tom Kubistant, the instructor, allegedly forced freshman and late-high school students to “openly discuss their orgasms” and masturbate, according to the federal complaint, filed by former Western Nevada College student and aspiring social worker Karen Royce, 60.
Kubistant “locked the classroom door” and played a “90-minute movie… depicting females engaging in sex and having an orgasm,” Royce’s complaint says.
He also allegedly told the class, which included high school students taking the class for college credit, he would “increase their sexual urges to such a height that they won’t be able to think about anything other than sex.”
Kubistant “announced to the entire class they must masturbate if they intended to pass the class,” according to the complaint.

(Hat-tip: Ace of Spades HQ.) Kubistant’s course, entitled “Human Sexuality,” was offered by the Psychology Department at Western Nevada College and, according to the lawsuit, the “course catalog identified the class as having high transferability and relevant as to the areas of social sciences, education and humanities and public service.” The WNC catalog said the objectives of Kubistant’s class “have been aligned with the recommended outcomes from the American Psychological Association and the WNC requirements for freshmen level general education courses.”

Western Nevada College receives federal education funds, and students can use federal grants or loans to pay their tuition. Is Kubistant’s class the kind of “education” that you, as a taxpayer, consider a worthwhile expenditure of your hard-earned money? Are masturbation and pornography so vital to American society that they must be subsidized by taxpayers and taught by such “expert” instructors as Tom Kubistant?

Without regard to any social-conservative, religious, personal or moral attitudes toward the content of Kubistant’s class, isn’t there a limited-government libertarian argument to be made against this use of taxpayer dollars? Can you say, Higher Education Bubble?

    Well, keep in mind this is a class in Human Sexuality where wanking is basically part of the subject matter of the class.  Now, if this were required for an English Literature or Chemistry class, yeah, I would be concerned.  Human Sexuality?  Not so much.

    Yeah, but there are only about a thousand ways you can teach Human Sexuality without turning it into 90 minutes of a creepy old perv breathlessly asking young people about the frequency of their wanking sessions.  

    There’s a place to be ‘edgy’ and there’s a place for reasoned calm academic study.  When you treat a classroom like a spank bank, you’re gonna get in trouble.  Kubistant is wrong to teach his students in this way.

    At least they are teaching SOMETHING of use at our universities these days.

    They were just starting the first “Human Sexuality” courses for credit when I was in school, but I remember thinking at the time, “Who needs a class to study that?”

    “High transferability to…public service:” I suppose this claim is supported  by the SEC’s record of internet porn usage.

  • Finrod Felagund

    Public ‘service’, like Monica.

     In chemistry you aren’t required to physically participate in acid-base reactions involving hydrochloric acid.

    Why teach kids something they know how to do already?

  • SDN

    And Penn State is explained. When pervs run athletic programs…

    Didn’t we just pass the line at Penn State? If this guy  is allowed to get away with so much whats to say next semester he doesn’t require his students to have sex in the class. Or perhaps keep a few of his students after class and threaten them with failing grades if they don’t perform sex for him. Have we all forgotten Penn State?
