“Swinger Guru” Spoke at School Assembly

Upper Dublin principal apologizes for speaker, who was billed as “life coach.”

Philly.com reports that a “swinger guru” spoke at a Thursday school assembly in the Upper Dublin school district north of Philadelphia, and that school officials are now apologizing.

The message by Principal Robert Schultz was sent to parents and guardians and cited “a number of concerns” that were raised about Thursday’s assembly for 11th- and 12th-grade students at the high school, as well as about “the credentials and background of the speaker.”

Social media posts identify the speaker as Jason C. Jean, a central Pennsylvania motivational speaker. And Jean’s website and Tumblr page show a photograph from an event at the high school last May.




In the wake of Thursday’s event, questions about Jean’s past have risen. He is the founder of SwingFest, which the event’s website calls “the ultimate swingers vacation for adult couples and singles looking to get away for some sexy adult fun.”

"There are a number of concerns which have been expressed and noted regarding the presentation itself, as well as the credentials and background of the speaker," Schultz wrote to parents. No further details about the presentation were immediately available.

It's not the first time Jean has spoken at Upper Dublin. At his Tumblr blog, "Reality & Truth," he posted a picture from a May 2013 assembly at the school.

    Appalling that such behavior would be implicitly supported. Should have been vetted.

    What did he speak about? Not swinging, surely? If he is an expert on some relevant topic, would his personal life matter? One could use the same justification to ban all sorts of speakers.
