Harvard approves student sex magazine

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) --Harvard University has approved a student magazine about sex that will feature art, sex advice and fiction -- as well as photographs of undressed Harvard undergraduates.

"We are aware of the fact that some segments of the population would find the contents distasteful," said Associate Dean Judith H. Kidd, a member of the 14-person board that approves all student organizations. "However, the committee considered this to be an issue of freedom of speech."

The committee, made up of faculty, staff and students, approved "H Bomb" magazine Tuesday with a 12-0 vote, with two abstentions. The vote lets the magazine's publishers apply for funding but does not guarantee money; when it would be published is uncertain.

The magazine cannot take its photos on university property, a policy that applies for all of the school's undergraduate publications.

Vassar and Swarthmore colleges also have sex-themed magazines, though H Bomb is the first such publication for Harvard.

The students proposing the magazine, Katharina C. Baldegg and Camilla H. Hrdy, have unlisted phone numbers and e-mail addresses, and could not be reached for comment by The Associated Press.

A Harvard Crimson newspaper story described H Bomb as a "porn magazine," but Baldegg and Hrdy dispute that description in a statement released by a Harvard spokesman.

"What we are proposing is an outlet for literary and artistic expression that is both desired and needed, not a pornographic magazine," it read.

I think that's awesome. Of course it's now the art vs porn debate, what a crock.

What is artist merit?

Harvard Sex Mag!

{immature}This sounds like a great idea! There's a ton of people at my school I'd love to see naked {/immature}

Seriously though, I think this is fine. People are going to want to discuss these things anyways, so they may as well have an outlet for it.

Does this mean more sexy women wearing glasses?

People need to lighten up. It's not like it is Berkeley where you know any mag like this will be anything BUT artistic.
