I dunno... I just have this feeling that academics making any kind of noise
about such things could find themselves censured.

Has anything like this ever happened?

Did any academic ever openly discuss (what seem to be) widely regarded as
highly abberant sexual behavior and get into trouble over it?

Heck -- academics got into trouble over LSD of all things. Nowadays any
academic discussion of (god forbid) beneficial aspects of LSD research
(except for military applications, of course) seems to bring trouble.

Bestiality might be in an even worse basket...
