A sociology professor at Penn State University suggested during a class that straight students should watch gay porn to open up about their sexuality.

In a lecture from his Sociology 119 course, professor Sam Richards urged his straight students to watch gay or lesbian porn to uncover a new aspect of their sexuality.

He said, “If you’re straight, watch gay or lesbian porn and see how quickly you feel aroused. And how you can’t control that. You’ll realize that ‘Oh, d—, I could be sexualized by people who are like me.’” “We are all at some level nonbinary. We’re all, very much, easily bisexual,” Richards added.

Richards claimed that every person has bisexual feelings and that each individual might be more comfortable being bisexual.

It is not clear to what research Richards is referring, but a 2015 study conducted by researchers at Cornell University claimed that both men and women were aroused when they watched porn of the same sex. The researchers claimed that this was evidence that sexuality is not strictly limited.

“I might have hit a nerve there. Did I hit a nerve?” the professor asked when the class fell silent in response.

Richards then doubled down on his challenge, specifically pointing out straight students, and especially men.

“Watch gay porn,” he reiterated, to laughter from the class. “See if you feel that feeling. If you feel that feeling, look in a mirror, and say huh, maybe I’m just feeling some things that I’m just afraid to release. And maybe you release that and maybe you’d be surprised that maybe you actually are fine being more bisexual.”

The video was posted to the SOC 119 YouTube page, but Richards has since made the videos private after news reports.

Speaking to Campus Reform this week, Richards defended his lecture. “When I discuss these issues, I generally do so as a sociologist, since that shapes how I see the world,” he said. “From this perspective, ‘sexuality’ is actually quite complex.”

“I have friends/acquaintances who’ve spent a long time in prison and they have homosexual sex,” he added. “They’re ‘straight’ until they need or want intimacy and then they have homosexual sex.”

Richards built quite a reputation for himself, he won numerous awards throughout his long academic career, which has spanned more than three decades.

According to a course description on Penn State’s website, Richards’ course is immensely popular with students.

“Every semester 725 students register for SOC 119, the largest race and ethnic relations course in the country. In that room, they have the opportunity to re-examine the world and challenge what they believe to be their place in it from a new perspective.”

The topic of discussion was about “A Conversation on Trans Issues, TERFS, and The Binary.” Trans-exclusionary radical feminist is referred to as TERF.

People were quick to respond to social media, with one commenting:

“Yep. His name is Professor Sam Richards. He’s built quite a reputation for himself. I personally think he’s psychotic but the liberals love him.”

Another said, “Grooming our young adults. Penn State Professor Sam Richards tells students to watch porn.”

A third chimed in, “Glad I’m not paying Penn State $52k/yr. for my kid to sit in Dr. Sam Richards sociology class for this drivel: ”If you’re straight, watch gay or lesbian porn and see how quickly you feel aroused. And how you can’t control that.” They’re after your kids & the grooming doesn’t stop.”

“@penn_state get rid of Sam richards. He is a disgusting person,” said a fourth.

A fifth said, “John, The Prof. is obviously Gay, and should not be pushing his own sexual preferences in the class room.”
