Cornell Shoots Porn, Too—In the Library

Colleges Still Good For Something: Cornell Library Serves as Setting for Porn Video

Cornell’s back at it. This week, in addition to the sheer public-defecation epicness of the Avicii concert, Cornell’s very own “Cameron Knight” shot and starred in her first (we assume) one-woman porn show. In the university’s engineering library of all places. Gawker had this to say:

In the video, a young blonde woman, possibly Miss Knight, records herself on a laptop webcam wanking and masturbating in broad daylight while seated at a public work station. The library is largely deserted but for one other student, who appears to be working (or maybe also wanking and masturbating) at a table in the background. Based on the emptiness of the library, and the fact that the video was uploaded to a hosting site in August, EzraBoard users have deduced that it must have been shot over Cornell’s summer term, when the school is populated by a scant mix of over- and under-achievers.

You can watch the video itself here (link definitely NSFW), and read Cornell’s comments about it here. Extra points if you watch the video in Olin. But fear not, Wes. We had Cornell beat by 13 years:

Why shoot your porn in private when we can bring it to the classroom? In 1999, Wesleyan offered a COL course on what “impels human sexuality toward, against, and beyond the limits which have traditionally defined civil discourses and practices.” One of its main assignments was to “create your own work of pornography,” which caused a minor ruckus in college news. Some students reported that “their families gently wondered why they paid more than $30,000 a year to send their children to a university that studies porn.” Wait a minute…

Maybe it’ll do us well to bring back the chains, whips, and straps if we want to remain at the top of the Horniest Schools list.
