Trends in Higher Education


Life has become extremely complex in the University of New Mexico's English department in the three years since Lisa D. Chávez, a tenured associate professor, was discovered moonlighting as the phone-sex dominatrix "Mistress Jade," and posing in promotional pictures sexually dominating one of her own graduate students. --quoted at MoonBattery

I cannot recall the English lit passages which include dominatrix references. Shelley? Chaucer?

It gets better.

Well, sure!
