    I was one of two people who saw the Ayres sex ed series at a screening two years ago provided by the San Francisco PBS station KQED. We only saw a couple of episodes. But the ones we saw were bizarre. In one scene, Ayres ( who sounds and looks like a taller version of Truman Capote, but with more hair) puts a sweater over his shoulder and punches his fist through a folded sleeve. He was demonstrating how the foreskin on a penis retracts. He pushes his fist through the sleeve repeatedly, and dramatically. This was performed in front of little boys and girls seated on the television stage.

    That fist-through-the- sleeve sweater scene was so weird that even the publicist for KQED was covering his eyes with his hands. At other times, the publicist seemed completely embarrassed by Ayres' series, and rolled his eyes a lot and laughed nervously.

    How this creepy show ever was nationally televised to school age children during the 1960s, I will never know.

    Words fail.

    Hey, I wonder if anyone can grab a screen shot from it to show Ayres at that age?

    When friends (who don't know that I'm involved in this crap) say "truth is stranger than fiction" I always do a bit of a spit-take, at how little they know. It's a bit like being part of an improbable Hollyweird drama. Some times you just step back and say:

    "Really?... REALLY???"

    There is a photo of Ayres from the San Francisco Chronicle in 1968 in a story about the controversy about the series. Alas, there are very few copies of this show " A Time of Your Life" available. It was shot on video and KQED had to rent special equipment and a screening room to show it.

    Throughout the show, Ayres shows naked photos of adults. He talks about sex in a very detached and flat lifeless voice. I suppose he was trying to act professorial (but instead he just ends up sounding depressed). To my mind, he used the nude photos to desensitize children about sex in the same way that pedophiles show porn photos to kids to groom and desensitize them.

    One of Ayres' former medical partners said that he found Ayres sex ed series to be so disgusting, graphic, and "over the top" that he stopped watching after he saw the fist-through-the- sleeve episode. This partner said he felt that Ayres was using the show to "procure."

    NBC News in San Francisco: "Watched Child Molestation Trial Takes New Turn"

    http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local...-88287952.html

    Excerpt:
    On Tuesday, Ayres appeared in court with his new defense attorney Jonathan McDougall, who requested doctors examine the competency of his patient.

    Judge Beth Freeman agreed to suspend criminal proceedings in the case and appointed two doctors to examine Ayres.

    McDougall did not give a reason in court for why he believes his client may not be competent to stand trial. He did not immediately return a call today seeking comment.

    ________________________

    Ayres' lawyer didn't give a reason because he doesn't have one. Hope the San Mateo DA is going to fight back hard. Seems to me the judge has given everything to Ayres.

    I just want to get this clear-

    Ayres attorney is implying that Ayres lacks the basic ability to understand the charges and participate in his own defense.

    The judge has to give the defendant the ability to take this angle because of "due process" according to Wikipedia: [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mental_competency[/ame]

    But the defense must really believe Ayres will lose this time,so this is really just a delay tactic.

    The question becomes has he been diagnosed with Parkinsons, Alzheimers or dementia recently? They might be able to make a case for incompetency based upon an organic process....otherwise, Ayres is going to have to fool two of his own by being nuttier than a....well you know all of the phrases.

    Did the court appoint the evaluators or was Ayres attorney allowed to choose? I would think the state should make absolutely certain that the evaluators are not associated with Ayres either through his work done with inmates or (God forbid) having any similar beliefs regarding patient boundaries....

    or trained at Judge Baker Guidance Center...no offense to the Guidance center
