BOULDER - CU Boulder is reviewing the way it handles complaints against professors after complaints over a classroom skit about prostitution.

9NEWS obtained a video of professor Patti Adler's lecture, which included teacher's assistants dressing up as six different kinds of prostitutes from sex slaves to high-end call girls.

It fit the topic of the class on deviance from the norms of society. The university said the problem is more than one person complained they felt pressured to dress up as prostitutes.

The dean above professor Adler said the university reversed its decision to pull her off of the class outright, saying they'll allow Adler to request a review of her class by her fellow professors.

Her fellow professors applauded that move and say the university was right to investigate.

The professor told 9NEWS she doesn't know if she'll file for a review. If she doesn't, she'll be assigned to teach a different topic.

Adler says she's also considering an early buyout offer from the university.
