I’m not sure if this is from a joke issue of the Crimson, or what….
Committee Approves Porn Magazine
H Bomb will feature nude pictures of undergraduates
After flipping through the pages of Squirm, a Vassar College erotica magazine, the Committee on College Life (CCL) voted to approve a student-run magazine that will feature nude pictures of Harvard undergraduates and articles about sexual issues at its meeting yesterday….
[Cofounder] Katharina C. Baldegg ’06… [said] that she does not object to H Bomb being called porn.
“It’s a sex magazine that will hopefully be run by students of all sexual orientations and backgrounds,” Baldegg said.Baldegg said she expected the magazine, which will also include art and fiction articles, to garner a lot of attention.
“I guess student porn is sort of an underground thing,” she said.
There’s also a too-obvious-to-make Vassar joke here.
Assistant Dean of the College Paul J. McLoughlin, a CCL member, said he consulted University General Counsel Robert W. Iuliano ’83, the University news office and University spokesperson Robert P. Mitchell before the decision.
“I needed to see if there were liability issues,” McLoughlin said.
In order to avoid liability, students will not be able to take nude pictures inside of Harvard buildings, according to McLoughlin.
I love that last bit!
