This is what passes for journalism these days? They didn't even address the most important question: was she hot?

Ouch. Probably going to be a popular class among the math majors

One person's weird is another person's winning.

Sorry for partying.

I read this article in the wall street journal several days ago and I thought it was pretty cool...though I can see how controversial this may be for some...

The furor has died down a lot, but it was a pretty big deal right when it came out.

Ignoring the puritanical reaction of "OMG...young adults are talking about SEX!", most of the controversy seems to focus on whether a) students were told in advance exactly what was going to happen (since this was not during actual class time but was a voluntary talk), and b) whether something like this should be allowed in university facilities.

Personally, I don't have a problem with what the professor did - so long as students knew what they were getting in advance. If you see the reactions of students who actually attended, nobody seems to have been offended by it - or if they were they simply walked out when it became clear what was going to happen. Most of the outrage seems to be generated by people who weren't even there and have no right to be offended by it.

At Carnegie Mellon they screen XXX movies in the University Center. It's been in the news a few times, but its never created a huge controversy that I know of.

They screen movies in the auditorium Thu/Fri/Sat, and generally they're normal movies (Inception, Avatar, etc). Over holidays they'll occasionally put on XXX movies if they don't have anything better to show (I guess that's the reasoning, who knows)
