Boink at B.U.
Special Report: Boink at B.U.
The buzz at Boston University is all about "Boink" Magazine - a glossy publication that bills itself as the college guide to carnal knowledge.
It is chock full of sex... and nude photos of B.U. students.
Matt Warren, B.U. Student
"Everyone's talking about it. When's it going to come out? Who's in it? Because everybody seems to know somebody who's in it."
It is not a school-sponsored publication.
B.U. has said it neither "endorses nor welcomes ‘Boink’ nor does it view its publication as a positive for the university community."
But the magazine has found a base of support...
An anonymous B.U. student was so impressed by the idea he bared it all for "Boink" photographers.
A B.U. Student
"I think it's interesting. I think it's new and I think it could go somewhere."
What you'll find in the pages of "Boink" is pornographic. The editor admits that on page two and asks what's wrong with that? Some students at B.U. are asking the same question.
Sophmore Sylvana Opris says "Boink" doesn't suit her taste, but she says it does capture an important aspect of college life.
Sylvana Opris, B.U. Student
"We are experimenting as individuals in our sexuality and in our identity and this conveys that."
The magazine appears in the aftermath of Janet Jackson's Super Bowl flash, the government's indecency crackdown on shows like Howard Stern's... and a sexually charged Monday Night Football skit that outraged viewers.
Some see "Boink" as more of the same... but others say B.U. leaders should encourage the project.
Sean Walter, B.U. Student
"I can see B.U. stepping back and protecting itself but I think they should support this and how the students want to express themselves."
Expressing themselves... by exposing themselves. "Boink" magazine hits the streets tonight.
