THE STUDENT NEWSPAPER AT Towson University recently ran column called "The Bed Post" which encouraged people to enjoy "mutual masturbation."
Some readers were offended by such material in the student newspaper, especially when there were more important things to write about. The editor of the paper resigned, telling a local newscast, "I personally made some poor editorial decision regarding the Bed Post."
The newspaper, however, stood by the column to some extent. Their follow up editorial said, "We do not apologize for the sexual content of the column. We wish it had been written less provocatively, and we realize that many readers were offended or simply felt it was inappropriate content for these pages."
Did the author of the story go too far? Or are the readers just prudes?
Do sex columns belong on campus newspapers?
