Calling himself a “hypocrite” and saying that he feels “set free by disease and disgrace,” Pasadena City College’s Professor of Porn, Hugo Schwyzer, now says he is on medical leave following what appeared to be a public nervous breakdown on Twitter last Friday.

Schwyzer, 46 and married, has become a popular figure online and in the media, as well as in academia, as a “male feminist” and teacher of a college course he titled “Navigating Pornography.” The popular course was the subject of controversy earlier this year when Schwyzer said that he would open a guest lecture by porn actor James Deen to the general public.

In his rant that consisted of about 100 tweets before, Schwyzer said, he surrendered his laptop to his family and checked into the hospital, the professor admitted to an extramarital affair with a 23 year old, though in his capacity as a “male feminist” he has strongly advocated that men date women in their own age range.

He confessed in one tweet to having sex with pornographic performers he met through teaching his academic class on porn.

He also declared that he built his academic career fraudulently, saying that he has no qualifications or training in the topic of women’s studies beyond two undergraduate courses and has never published an academic paper in the field. His actual training, he says, is in “British medieval church history.”

The porn prof’s online freakout was set off when sexually oriented text messages he’d been exchanging with 27-year-old pornographic actress Christina Parreira began appearing on social media sites. According to Parreira, Schwyzer fantasized about having three-way sex with her and Deen in his classroom as his “Navigating Pornography” students watched.

A spokesman for Pasadena City College, Juan Gutierrez, said the school was unaware that Schwyzer had taken medical leave and expected him to be teaching in the fall semester.

“Should professor Schwyzer indicate that he is in need of any support from the college regarding this situation or health issues, we will extend that support in any way possible,” Gutierrez said.
