More Sex, Sex, Sex in the Student Press

Sex has been the story of the student press for the past decade, for better and worse. Sex columns and sex issues in college newspapers and full-blown campus sex magazines have appeared with increasing regularity and as increasingly risqué at or near campuses nationwide and into Canada (and even India!).

C-Spot

The newest student sex mag is C-Spot, an independent erotic review created and put out by Columbia University students. The founder’s take on it: “C-Spot is a means for students to combine the intellectual, academic and creative with the erotic.” Similar prominent student sex mags operate at Rice, Harvard, Yale, Boston, Vassar, and the University of Chicago.

Are they art or porn or both? Are they decent tools for journalistic expression? The most positive aspect of these publications, and their column peers, in my opinion: They cover an incredibly significant area of students’ lives and provide students with a voice on an area that otherwise basically goes uncovered in the mainstream student and professional press.
