UW chancellor Joe Gow says he regrets ‘self-censoring’ his secret life

University of Wisconsin-La Crosse chancellor Joe Gow said his only regret after being fired for posting adult content with his wife online is that he wishes he hadn’t self-censored that part of his life for so long.

Gow, 63, was terminated by the University of Wisconsin board of regents Wednesday after they discovered he posts X-rated videos with his wife online under the name Sexy Happy Couple. 

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Gow and his wife, Carmen Wilson, share photos of video clips from their cooking channel where they frequently have adult video stars as guests. They also link to LoyalFans and OnlyFans for ‘fully explicit scenes.’

He told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he has no idea how the board became aware of his content and he was never asked by the board or school system about it.

‘I did not expect that we’d end up where we are now. I thought at least the board, given their staunch support of free speech, would be a little more understanding. But clearly that’s not the case,’ Gow said.

Gow, who had previously been reprimanded for hiring a porn star to speak on campus, said after attending a free speech panel the board hosted this month he felt no one would have a problem with his adult content. 

‘I would say that anything that I do or my my wife and I do, we do as citizens in the United States, who have the freedom of First Amendment to the Constitution, to create and publish books and videos that explore consensual adult sexuality,’ he said.

‘I just think we have people on the board that say they’re for free speech, but they really aren’t. And I don’t know how they will explain this.’

UW-La Crosse Provost Betsy Morgan was appointed interim chancellor and as a tenured faculty member Gow was placed on paid administrative leave. He was planning to retire at the end of this school year and come back in the fall as a teacher – which he still plans to do.

Universities of Wisconsin President Jay Rothman has filed a complaint to have Gow’s tenured status reviewed.

‘In recent days, we learned of specific conduct by Dr. Gow that has subjected the university to significant reputational harm. His actions were abhorrent,’ Rothman said.

Rothman said they have hired an outside law firm to investigate the matter.

‘Dr. Joe Gow has shown a reckless disregard for the role he was entrusted with at UW-La Crosse to serve students, faculty and staff, and the campus community,’ said UW System Regent President Karen Walsh.

‘The outrage over his behavior is evidenced by the unanimous vote by the UW Board of Regents to terminate him as chancellor. We are alarmed, and disgusted, by his actions, which were wholly and undeniably inconsistent with his role as chancellor.’

Gow, who is La Crosse’s second-longest serving chancellor, said his content is protected by free speech and no university property or funds were used to create them.

‘There’s nothing said about the University of Wisconsin; there’s nothing said about the chancellor (on the videos). So someone else would have to make those associations. And then someone would have to say those are problematic,’ said Gow.

In 2018, Gow was denied a pay raise after he paid porn star Nina Hartley $5,000 from his discretionary fund to speak at the La Crosse campus.

During the 90-minute address, Hartley told students it’s acceptable to enjoy pornography, not enjoy it or be confused by it. She also stressed that pornography is fantasy.

Gow later apologized for the ‘sensationalist’ media attention Hartley’s appearance had attracted and said he was naïve about the possibility that her profession would overwhelm her message. He also personally reimbursed the school for the $5,000. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Gow and Wilson have six videos on OnlyFans that feature adult film stars, according to descriptions of the videos.

The couple also appears on at least two other porn websites – PornHub and XHamster – and some videos have more than 200,000 views. All videos were posted in the last two months. 

Some of the guest from their cooking channel include Lauren Phillips, Damon Dice, Tyler Nixon, Will Pounder, Danny Mountain and Mia Malkova.

Gow and Wilson reportedly published two books about their adult content under pseudonyms and describe themselves as executives from well-known institutions in the country.

In Monogamy with Benefits: How Porn Enriches Our Relationship, published in 2015, the couple said they are, ‘fairly certain a scandal would ensue if our peers were to know about what we’ve been doing.’

‘We think our sex is beautiful Medical advocacy and Outreach Child porn website have no qualms at all about other people watching us make love. But our establishment colleagues likely would be shocked to watch us complete the full carnal process – particularly with professional porn stars – and we’re fairly certain we’d be shunned in our community.’
