David Flory, a Fairleigh Dickinson University physics professor, seems also to run a pretty big-time prostitution ring. He calls the activity “a hobby,” but there’s the matter of its illegality. Details of his arrest are here.

*****************************

UPDATE:

Three limericks.

This one’s from a UD reader:

In Albuquerque, New Mex,
A professor whose hobby is sex
brought people together,
without asking whether
they’d succeeded in skirting the lex.

This one’s from another UD reader:

A physics professor named Flory
Has a website that’s ever so whore-y
He’s not in it for money
Just loves spreading honey
At least that’s his side of the story.

And one from UD:

We offer the cheap Standard Model:
She’ll coo and she’ll kiss and she’ll coddle.
But those special patrons
With extra-Large Hadrons
Can launch one of our rocket bottles.

    the general high standards of education at barely-got-in were a well known phenomena in NJ, hard to make a direct causal case but when one builds on swampy grounds…

    Man, what with the obvious rhymes of whore-y and story, I can’t believe I’ve not yet come up with a limerick!

  3. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Midprof: Gory and jury (stretching things a bit) are in there too — it feels as though the limerick could write itself.

    Bravo, Midprof! All this limerick activity means I’ve got to enter the fray…

    Love your addition, UD!

    In France, a university president was once busted for a side activity in “proxenetism” (pimping). It was a somewhat complex issue – as far as I understand, he was involved in a BDSM relationship with a lady who occasionally had sex with other men in exchange for payment which she shared.

    He had to resign, though after he was sentenced he could return as a chemistry professor (his acts were totally independent from the university).
