College Porn Newest Trend On Campuses

When you think of a college-operated sex magazine, what do you think would be in it? Pages and pages of porn, right? Maybe a feminist poem depicting the life and times of a vagina? The newest vibrators on the market? The answers to the above questions are a resounding yes, yes and yes.

According to an article in the March 3 issue of The New York Times Magazine, titled “Campus Exposure” sex magazines have been popping up in some of the most prestigious college campuses around the nation. Harvard, Columbia and Boston University, among others, all have their own sex magazines, with names ranging from the innocent H Bomb to the blunt Boink. So how do these naughty publications come to life? With the help of university officials in some cases, in others, with willing outside participants.

In Harvard’s case, it came easy. The university’s Committee on College Life approved the magazine and controversially granted $2,000 in startup costs by the Undergraduate Council. The magazine boasts both a faculty adviser and an adult champion.

Quite a contrast from say, Boston U’s unapologetically graphic sex magazine, Boink, which some call “user-friendly porn.” Unsurprisingly, this magazine is the most popular and commercially ambitious of the pack. It costs $7.95 and has a circulation of 10,000 and on top of all that, it actually pays its contributors.

But are these magazines merely another way for oversexed college kids to exploit themselves or are they actual art forms, exemplifying freedom of expression and sexual liberty? It depends on who you ask.
