It turns out renowned egghead university MIT was also dragged into a sex scandal thanks to two female students who wrote a detailed, "consumer guide" to 36 male students they humped.
Yes, two geek-loving lasses named Susan Gilbert and Roxanne Richie were the Robert Johnsons to Karen F. Owen's Led Zeppelin when it comes to sport-fucking authorship. Unlike Owen, who was showered with offers from movie and book agents, Richie and Gilbert were almost booted from the school.
An alumnus of the class of 1980 adds the following from Wikipedia: ""In 1977, two female students, juniors Susan Gilbert and Roxanne Ritchie, were disciplined for publishing an article on April 28 of that year in the "alternative" MIT campus weekly Thursday. Entitled "Consumer Guide to MIT Men," the article was a sex survey of 36 men the two claimed to have had sex with, and the men were rated according to their performance. Gilbert and Ritchie had intended to turn the tables on the rating systems and facebooks men use for women, but their article led not only to disciplinary action against them but also to a protest petition signed by 200 students, as well as condemnation by President Jerome B. Wiesner, who published a fierce criticism of the article.""
Someone please dig up the microfiche version of this and send it along to us so we can continue to cater to America's fascination with chicks and dicks. Let's embrace this moment in time. Together.
