This episode is partially based on the 2010 Duke University faux sex thesis controversy, which was a 42-page Power Point document written by Karen Owen, a 24-year-old senior. In this document was privately written & distributed to just a few friends. During homecoming weekend, one of the friends forwarded it, this causing it to go viral. The bulk of the controversy surrounded whether she invaded her partners' rights to privacy, and whether the subjects of Owen's faux thesis had a right to sue. See more
