SemiCoolStory - back in my undergrad days, the school paper wrote a couple of unpopular opinion pieces about the President. One of the political clubs decided to buy every single copy and destroy them the night the papers got printed up and loaded into the machines.

It worked so well that the student paper printed up another batch because demand was so high.

Clearly the Streisand Effect is not covered in any course taught at the college.

Came for the Streisand reference.

Leaving satisfied.

The sooner America's college administrators can come to terms with hot, hot cocks, the sooner we can move past this unfortunate recurring story.

He must be having difficulty getting a grip.  Hence, the outbursts of frustration.

Had a similar story from college.  They put a special "thank you for your support" in batch 2 to all the people that supported the paper by purchasing a copy.  And there was much teeth-gnashing as a result.  Glorious.

Huh, it seems especially odd that a community college would freak out over something like this. I can sort of twist my brain around to see a frenzied, puritanical viewpoint if a particularly racy sex op-ed or entire "issue" were printed on a campus of a standard 4-year institution, considering they may convince themselves that the 10,000+ student body, all living together in close quarters, will read the same thing at once and instantly try all kinds of hot kinky sexual congress with one another (because they actually think like that), but a community college, with their normally wide age variance within the enrollment and the fact they simply commute to class and probably don't hang around long enough anyways to even give a f*ck about a publication printed by the school itself? Really?

A photographer for my community college paper stood outside the nude drawing class and took pictures through a window.

The paper didn't start publishing again for several years.

Well she never uses lube and I'm not found of her 'dominator', so yes I do prefer it only once a year

Either that, or reading comprehension is not one of subby's traits.

The only interesting thing I "learned" from that gawker article was from the reference to the one guy saying in the issue that his favorite sexual position is the figure 8.

So I looked it up, expecting something completely different.

And I found out that it is something the GF and I do regularly. We just didn't know it has a name.

Highly recommend.

My 4 year college had sex issues and a regular relationship/sex advice column and no one raised much of a fuss, and this was back in the mid 90s.

I went to read it and see all the dirty dirty stuff and was totally disappointed.  most of the issue is non-sex ads and content, one page with reviews of dildoes that is yawwwwnn, and a big ol page supporting ABSTINENCE.  no doubt that caused the banning.

This type of filth does not need to be in an institute of higher learning's newspaper. It is inappropriate and only serves to allow them to succumb to their lustful urges. If they would spend more time trying to learn something other than removing a bra one handed, this country would be better off.

Killer Cars:

Community Colleges are full of people who although graduated from alright universities could not get a proper job in the private sector or in the first tier of academia and think teaching High School is beneath them.

Then there are those who teach there cause it's easy or who actually want to be there, but mostly it's full of people who are just paying the bills til their business venture takes off.

about the only thing good I can say about my community college newspaper was that A0 I learned how to lay out a paper using an actual waxer (roughly equivalent to being an expert at hand churning butter now) and B) it luanched the Cartooning career on one Frank Cho, comic book artist extraordinaire-and I still have some of his original hand-drawn panels

Same thing happend at my school but the paper was free. We knew that the young republicans were going to try to stop the story about bush from getting out so the paper ask several of the local businesses wo had stands to start requiring a purchase of some kind to get a copy but the only places we ask to do it was the head shop and sex toy place they were happy to comply

Times like these make me glad my student paper (UMD's The Diamondback) is totally independent - they don't even receive school funds, from what I recall (even though their offices are right above the South Crampus Dining Hall).

// they printed an issue of blank pages in 1971 to protest the Vietnam War, which led to the split
// I still remember a Yale student paper article ("It's All About the Sauce") about oral sex, which I think was first run my freshman year of college

At UMBC circa 1992 various student groups and the Larouch-ians used to steal each others publications.

Professors at my CC are paid in the range of 50-90k. It is a proper job. Many of them also teach at the nearby CSU and UC campus and are involved in research.

I was hoping for more images of HOT*HOT*HOT*COEDS all naked and disheveled and lusty and full of desire and exploring their bodies, and those of their classmates. All the forbidden urges, all the knowledge and secrets of sensual pleasure and indulgence, unknown to them through their formative years are all laid out on the table, a sumptuous bounty on which they may feast morning, noon, and night. All the identities, the maiden, the whore, the slut, the coquette, the butch, the ingenue, the matron, the naughty librarian, the teacher, the school girl, the dominatrix, the slut-slave-pet, the dyke, the goddess, the farmer's daughter....and so much, much more. All there for the young Co-Ed to try on.

I'm not sure why I expected to see that here. No.

The funny thing about the abstinence story is that they had to go to a high school to find someone to interview, apparently there were no virgins at that college.

My university had an annual sex issue. Nobody cared. The only time I remember them getting into trouble was running a story about how engineering girls aren't exactly hot but that is OK since they are engineering hot due to the lower standards of engineering males. This issue ran near to the anniversary of the École Polytechnique Massacre.  A local television reporter got very upset about it. The paper then made a point of having a thoughtful debate with the reporter, then proceeded to mention said reporter in unflattering ways as often as was possible in future issues.

And why is it that those who pledge abstinence...(how to put this delicately)...are those for whom it would likely not be an issue anyway?

Saying no: Why some "choose" abstinence

There, I fixed that headline for them. And really, all the article needed to say was "because they are fat and/or ugly and nobody wants to have sex with them".

Geez, when I was at the University of Illinois in 1998, a student feminist publication called  Pandora's Rag printed a detailed illustration of the vulva with labels on all of the parts in poster format, and students posted it on their doors in the dorms.

This seems remarkably mild by comparison.

I got fired from my producer post at the community college television station because I claimed to have bonus footage of the Nick Berg beheading.  I aired a bunch of staffers with scarfs over their faces playing soccer with a human head I got from the dissection lab.  This was before I knew that there was such a thing as too soon.  And I didn't realize that Berg's little sister went to our school.  Oops.
