Professor in trouble after prostitution skit

Published:

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- A tenured Colorado professor has run into trouble after a lecture on prostitution featured a skit in which students dressed up as prostitutes, sex slaves and escorts.

University of Colorado sociology professor Patty Adler says the lecture earlier this semester was meant to show students lifestyles that lead to prostitution, but administrators didn't see it that way.

Adler tells the Daily Camera (http://bit.ly/1hp3HqK ) that they gave her a choice: Take a buyout and retire after 26 years, or have her course reviewed by the sociology department.

The newspaper said she hadn't made a decision by Thursday.

More than 500 students enrolled in Adler's "Deviance in U.S. Society" course this term. Adler says she never had complaints before about the course from university administrators.
