Northwestern University Professor William Peace wrote an article for the winter 2014 "Bad Girls" issue of Atrium, a faculty-produced bio-ethics journal. Seems normal enough, right? The article described in graphic detail his experience in the recovery ward of a hospital when he was 18-years-old. Still pretty normal. Peace expressed his concern with whether or not his penis would still be functional after being rendered a paraplegic due to a spinal injury, as any teenage boy would. He soon found out it was still functional when a nurse in the hospital went down on him and brought him to orgasm. Wait...what?

The article aptly titled "Head Nurses" goes on to discuss the "bad girl" nurses who would answer late night calls from male patients by giving them blowjobs. Peace recalls:

"...my roommates told me about the other group of bad girls- the ones I desperately wanted to meet. These bad girls we called "the head nurses". Initially I thought this was an urban legend if not a bad practical joke. Yet I was told again and again that, at some point during my rehabilitation, a nurse I knew or had never seen would answer the call bell late at night and give me a blowjob. There was no privacy in rehabilitation centers at the time."

Peace's writing was so controversial that some administrators at Northwestern University pulled the piece down from the internet for fear it would tarnish the image of the school. Almost a year later, after much debate on censorship rights, they have decided to let the story live out how Peace intended. Of the decision, Peace said:

"Truth be told, I could tell many stories that would be far more objectionable to most people than my "head nurse" experience. But what is etched in my mind some thirty-five years later is the compassion that woman showed me - the compassion so many of these women showed us young me."
