9780813548067: Sex and the University: Celebrity, Controversy, and a Student Journalism Revolution

Who would think that Monday morning's page-turning sports scores could be trumped by Sex on Tuesday? But, during the last decade or so, college newspaper sex columns and campus sex magazines have revolutionized student journalism and helped define a new sexual generation. They are the ultimate authorities on student social interaction, relationships, and sex at a time when sexual activity, sexual dangers, and sexual ignorance are prevalent and sex has become the wallpaper of students' lives.

Daniel Reimold gives readers of all generations an inside look at this phenomenon. Student sex columnists and sex magazine editors are both celebrities on their home campuses. One columnist, echoing the sentiments of many, said he became an overnight rock star golden child of journalism. But, with celebrity comes controversy. These columns and magazines have sparked contentious and far-reaching legal, religious, and intergenerational debates about sex, the student press, and the place of both within higher education. They are also the most prominent modern student press combatants in the fight for free speech. And they have blurred journalistic boundaries between what is considered public and private, art and pornography, and gossip and news.

Sex and the University
explores the celebrity status that student sex columnists and magazine editors have received, the controversies they have caused, and the sexual generation and student journalism revolution they represent. Complete with a sexicon of slang, this book also dives into the columns and magazines themselves, sharing for the first time what modern students are saying about their sex and love lives, in their own words.

About the Author:

DANIEL REIMOLD was an Assistant Professor at St. Joseph’s University, where he also advised the campus newspaper. Hailed by The Nation as a leading expert on the student sex column movement, he published and presented research on college media throughout the United States and Southeast Asia. He founded the influential website College Media Matters. He passed away in 2015. 

Review:

"Move over, Carrie Bradshaw. Reimold has enthusiastically and exhaustively tackled our erotic fixation with the college sex columnist. He adeptly lives up to his reputation as the preeminent authority on college paper sex scribes with a work that is sure to instigate even more discourse—and debate—on this highly controversial topic." (Yvonne K. Fulbright, PhD, MSEd author of Sultry Sex Talk to Seduce Any Lover 2010-03-16)

"Sex, college, and journalism: is there a more incendiary combination? Sex and the University is the first comprehensive exploration of today's transformational generation of student journalists—revolutionizing their school newspapers one provocative, pedagogic, pun-laden column at a time." (Julia Allison former Georgetown University dating columnist, NBC New York on-air correspondent 2010-05-19)

"Campus sex columns are widely read but have gone largely unstudied until Reimold, a journalism professor at the University of Tampa, began working on his first book, Sex and the University. His work has both captivating detail and the larger context necessary to immerse the reader in the lives of campus sex columnists." (Campus Progress 2010-10-26)
