As of October 2018, Schwyzer was reported to be working at a Trader Joe’s.


In January 2014, Schwyzer began working as a tax accounting assistant in Los Angeles. In March 2015, in the final entry on his blog, Schwyzer noted that he was not “coming back” nor planning any “grand return” to public life.


In February 2013, Schwyzer invited adult film actor James Deen to return to his alma mater, Pasadena City College, to speak to students about his career. The appearance, initially open to the public, was restricted by college administrators due to “public safety concerns” over “protesters”. Deen was restricted to speaking to the students of Pasadena City College’s “Navigating Pornography” class.

On August 9, 2013, Schwyzer tweeted a rapid-fire series of confessions described as a “meltdown”; his tweet storm included confessions of sex with porn stars who had spoken in his classes, as well as his own absence of credentials to teach women’s studies. When white feminists expressed concern for Schwyzer’s mental health, black activist Mikki Kendall created the hashtag #solidarityisforwhitewomen, which rapidly trended worldwide. In an op-ed for the Guardian, Kendall noted that “Hugo Schwyzer’s Twitter confession was the catalyst” for the hashtag’s creation and subsequent popularity.

In September 2013, the college announced that it was launching an investigation of Schwyzer that could lead to his termination. In the media, Schwyzer indicated that he would resign and leave quietly if the college allowed him to remain on salary until the end of the year, at which time health benefits and disability retirement would have commenced. The college denied this request. On October 8, 2013, Schwyzer resigned and the college investigation closed.

A week earlier, writing under the heading “Picking up a felony DUI”, Schwyzer announced that he had been involved in a car crash, causing injury to a 25-year-old woman. The incident occurred on Friday, 27 September 2013, near San Juan Bautista, California. Schwyzer apologized to the injured woman before she was airlifted to hospital, made a full confession to law enforcement, and also stated “I am a danger to myself and others and mitigating that danger is vital.” He was then charged with felony DUI and released from San Benito County Jail on bail of $100,000. A court date of 5 November 2013 was given. Schwyzer was reported to be in “an extended treatment program in Malibu, California, focusing on mental illness and chemical dependency.” In an April 2015 blog comment, Schwyzer claimed that the DUI matter had been resolved, but that he had been asked not to comment on the matter further.


Schwyzer was a prolific writer and wrote on topics both public and deeply personal, stemming from his own curiosities as well as the inquisitiveness of others. He has written for such publications as Jezebel and The Atlantic, was a contributor to The Good Men Project, and co-authored Beauty, Disrupted: A Memoir, a biography of supermodel Carré Otis published in October 2011 by HarperCollins.


Schwyzer has been divorced four times. He has two children, Heloise Cerys Raquel (born 2009) and David Aneurin Nikola (born 2012), with fourth ex-wife Eira Victoria Chumrau.


Schwyzer studied history at University of California, Berkeley, specializing in medieval history. He developed a passion for this subject after seeing Derek Jacobi perform Shakespeare’s Richard II. He attended graduate school at UCLA and was awarded his PhD in 1999.


Schwyzer became the subject of controversy when he disclosed to school administration and the general public his many affairs with his young female college students. In several blog posts and interviews, Schwyzer further admitted to an ongoing problem with alcohol and drug abuse, a decades-long struggle with borderline personality disorder and bipolar depression, and a violent murder-suicide attempt with his ex-girlfriend while both were under the influence of narcotics in the summer of 1998.


Schwyzer joined the Pasadena City College faculty as an adjunct instructor in 1993, and was then soon hired to a tenure-track position in 1994. Over the course of the following two decades, he taught various history and gender studies courses at PCC, as well as co-taught an interdisciplinary humanities course alongside English and psychology faculty members. After a 20-year career, he was forced to resign in October 2013 due to personal issues and public controversies.
