The elite University of California, Berkeley has seen a blow to its uber-serious reputation with a controversial article from a student boasting about her marathon campus sex sessions.
Nadia Cho's detailed account was part of her weekly column in The Daily Californian, Berkeley’s independent, student-run newspaper.
Cho writes that she and an unnamed male student started their romp in Berkeley’s library, Main Stacks, the day before Thanksgiving, when the campus was ‘marvellously empty’.
But other students were in the library studying while the two performed and more than one student walked by them in mid-act, Cho writes.
She and her partner then moved into one of Berkeley’s classrooms, as she graphically describes.
‘Sex isn’t always about c****** and having orgasms. Sometimes it’s for s**** and giggles,’ she writes.
‘Having expectations and goals can ruin the fun of it. Besides, it’s probably not a good idea to ejaculate in public places - just saying. Keep this in mind should you ever attempt sex on campus.’
Cho writes that her experience was inspired by a spring 2012 column for the paper, ‘Sex on campus: actually doable?’
Her response: ‘yes - having sex on campus is actually very doable, and it’s lots of fun. It’s also surprisingly easy.’
The Daily Californian has a history of publishing controversial editorials, and in some cases issues containing brash statements have led to newspaper theft - a form of censorship where free newspapers are stolen in bulk to cut down on readership.
In 2002, former Berkeley mayor Tom Bates pleaded guilty to stealing and trashing 1,000 copies of an issue of The Daily Californian that carried an endorsement of his opponent Shirley Dean, who was mayor at the time.
Bates beat Dean two days later and took over office.
After Bates’ admittance a year later, stealing free newspapers in Berkeley became punishable.
Bates paid a $100 fine for his infraction and promised to support a local ordinance against newspaper theft.
The Daily Californian published its first issue in 1871 and is one of the oldest college newspapers in the U.S. It became independent from UC Berkeley in 1971.
The paper, which is now published by the Independent Berkeley Students Publishing Company, has a circulation of about 10,000 and a readership of about 42,000, according to its advertising information.
UC Berkeley could not be reached for reactions to Cho’s story.
Cho could not be reached about her story either.
