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.
That element least expected is often the most welcome.

And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamplight o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the
floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted- nevermore!~E.A.Poe
Live long and Prosper......BiOtChEs!!

How I never thought that I owuld see the day that a universtiy would endorse let alone publish a porn mag. You go Harvard, as for those that would hate on them for doing such a thing well I say to you " the world is changing get use to it." Our children have done far worse things than look at a bunch of naked people in magaezines. why don't we stop kids from buying drugs and gunes befor we get all huffy about them looking at porn. Lets be honest with ourselves we have all looked at porn so don't pretend to be so selfrighteous.

Magai... I am sorry to burst your bubble, but not all of us have looked at pornography. I know that I havn't, not once in my life. I have veiwed glamour nudes of my friends, but those are not considered pornography, considering I have seen them naked with my own eyes.

A note about this H Bomb thing... I don't see it going very far.
Gravedigger, when you dig my grave, would you make it shallow so that I can feel the rain?.
