Pastor turns away NU volunteers after sex-toy demo

The recent sex-toy demonstration at Northwestern University has apparently come back to haunt more than a dozen students who were looking to volunteer in Tennessee.

The NU students were all set to camp on a church's property in Hixson, Tennessee, last month while they were in town to help build a nature trail.

But the church's pastor read an article about the sex demonstration set up by the Northwestern professor and then had a change of heart.

The pastor said the students' presence hurt the church's reputation.

The students ended up finding other accommodations.
