CONFESSION: Infamous 'porn prof' admits he had sex with young female student, university launches investigation

Pasadena City College (PCC) officials are investigating “porn professor” Hugo Schwyzer after he told a local newspaper on Thursday that he had sex with at least one young female students as recently as 2011.

Schwyzer apparently made the confession from a nearby mental hospital as part of the 10-days of atonement included in the Jewish New Year holiday of Rosh HaShana.

Schwyzer hosts a porn start in the classroom.

“I want people to have compassion for me and to recognize that if they are frustrated or angry with me I did... things because I am sick,” he said, according to the Pasadena Star-News. “I’m a fraud.”

Schwyzer, who says he suffers from several mental disorders, made a name for himself over the last year through a number of antics, including hosting porn star James Deen on campus, tweeting that he wished to have sex with Deen, and beginning a class called “Navigating Porn,” which administrators eventually cancelled.

PCC's General Counsel Gail Cooper was swift to condemn Schwyzer's admission last week, saying the school will not “condone or tolerate such behavior by any faculty member.”

We will “act swiftly to conduct an investigation and hold Mr. Schwyzer accountable for his actions while an employee,” the statement continued.

In his apology to the Star-News, Schwyzer suggested he realized his actions were wrong while he was doing them.

“I was fraudulent in that I stated it was wrong for older men to have sexual relationships with younger women,” he said. “But in practice I continued to have relationships with women who were young enough to be my daughter and there’s a lot of fraud and hypocrisy in that.”
