Good News from Cambridge

Harvard Club Promotes Abstinence

By JESSE HARLAN ALDERMAN

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Sometime between the founding of a student-run porn magazine and the day the campus health center advertised "Free Lube," Harvard University seniors Sarah Kinsella and Justin Murray decided to fight back against what they see as too much mindless sex at the Ivy League school.

They founded a student group called True Love Revolution to promote abstinence on campus. The group, created earlier this school year, has more than 90 members on its Facebook.com page and drew about half that many to an ice cream social.

Harvard treats sex _ or "hooking up" _ so casually that "sometimes I wonder if sex is even a remotely serious thing," said Kinsella, who is dating Murray . . .

. . . Others on campus have mocked the group. Murray said his friends take pleasure in loudly, and graphically, discussing their sex lives just to taunt him.

"On campus there is such a strong attitude of pluralism and acceptance, but then it doesn't extend to this," Kinsella said.

It's an AP story, so the text is available in several places. You can read it here.

Also, here's a link to the Harvard Crimson column mentioned in the article.
