Sex and the University: Is Your Student Newspaper, Magazine Mentioned?

In the latest issue of College Media Review, Sex and the University is praised as a book that employs “old-fashioned reporting as well as scholarly research to shed light on [the] decades-old trend” of sex in student journalism. It is described as a text relevant to journalism, public health, sociology and women’s studies. 

As Pat Winters Lauro, a Kean University j-prof and former New York Daily News staffer, writes at the close of her critique: “Sex and the University is an important tome because it documents a phenomenon that has not been given much serious attention other than what the author cites as the sometimes voyeuristic media coverage by the commercial press. Certainly, it’s not your typical academic tome. It is original, provocative and controversial. In fact, like the sex columns themselves, Sex and the University is the kind of book you will find yourself either loving or hating. One thing is certain, though, you will not put it down.”  (Full review pages 20-21)
