'Porn prof' tweets he planned to have classroom sex with porn star James Deen

Pasadena City College (PCC) history Professor Hugo Schwyzer unleashed a Twitter rampage Friday, suggesting he had planned to have sex with James Deen in front of his class during the porn superstar’s February 27, visit.

“Yes, I wanted to have my students watch me screw James Deen," Schwyzer, tweeted Friday.

Schwyzer claimed in a tweet he hoped to have classroom sex with porn star James Deen.

Deen, perhaps the biggest name in the porn industry, delivered a guest lecture in Schwyzer’s “Navigating Pornography” class in February, despite national outrage sparked by reports on the event from Campus Reform and other outlets.

In another tweet on Friday, Schwyzer, suggested he had successfully used classroom invitations to bed porn stars in the past.

“I fucked porn stars I met through my classes,” he tweeted. 

Earlier  this month, Schwyzer announced he had cancelled the controversial “Navigating Pornography” class for the fall to take a leave of absence and enter psychological rehab he needed because of the negative media attention his class garnered.  

In the remarkable stream of more than 130 tweets on Friday, Schwyzer also confessed to sexting a different porn star, having sexual relations with his female students, and sometimes having sex in order to gain promotion at the college.

“Sometimes, I fucked my way into a gig,” he tweeted.

Schwyzer offered the disclaimer that the tweets were the product of a “manic episode” he was experiencing.

“Let me be clear: I have a serious mental illness.  But that is an explanation, not an excuse, for the harm I've inflicted,” he wrote.

PCC administrators, meanwhile, have condemned some of Schwyzer’s actions, but fallen short of firing him. 

This is "clearly not the type of conduct we want from any of our professors or faculty,"  PCC Trustee Bill Thomson said, according to the Pasadena Star News reported on Thursday .

"It's unlike Mr. Wiener where he has to face the electorate," Thompson added. "We face a number of lawful constraints in what we can do." 

Neither Schwyzer or PCC responded to Campus Reform’s request for comment in time for publication.
