Editorial Reviews


"Move over, Carrie Bradshaw. Reimold has enthusiastically and exhaustively tackled our erotic fixation with the college sex columnist. He adeptly lives up to his reputation as the preeminent authority on college paper sex scribes with a work that is sure to instigate even more discourse—and debate—on this highly controversial topic."
(Yvonne K. Fulbright, PhD, MSEd author of Sultry Sex Talk to Seduce Any Lover 2010-03-16)

"Sex, college, and journalism: is there a more incendiary combination? Sex and the University is the first comprehensive exploration of today's transformational generation of student journalists—revolutionizing their school newspapers one provocative, pedagogic, pun-laden column at a time."
(Julia Allison former Georgetown University dating columnist, NBC New York on-air correspondent 2010-05-19)

"Campus sex columns are widely read but have gone largely unstudied until Reimold, a journalism professor at the University of Tampa, began working on his first book, Sex and the University. His work has both captivating detail and the larger context necessary to immerse the reader in the lives of campus sex columnists."
(Campus Progress 2010-10-26)
