Sexual identity course leads to harassment lawsuit
Share This Article:
A human sexuality course taught at Western Nevada College has taken its intimate assessment methods too far for one Karen Royce, 60, who took legal action against class instructor Tom Kubistant on 25th June for sexual harassment. Royce enrolled on the course last year in the hopes of fulfilling her goal of a career in social work. According to the lawsuit, the senior student was under the impression that she would be taught about the psychological and societal factors of human sexuality, which she deemed ‘pertinent and necessary in excelling as a social worker’. Instead, the lawsuit states that in the first class, after a waiver had been signed underlining the sexual content of the course, Kubistant informed his students that he would "increase their sexual urges to such a height that they won't be able to think about anything other than sex". This is in spite of the fact that some students were as young as seventeen and taking the course for college credit. The methods of assessment for students included listing sexual positions and recording personal experiences of masturbation in a journal to be submitted to Kubistant, doubling the number of times they would masturbate each week.
