from www.thehullabaloo.com – Legend has it that many years ago, a Tulane professor acted in a pornographic film. In the early ’80s, a student of that professor discovered the film, hastily informed everyone he possibly could and procured a copy of the videotape. Though details of the specifics have been lost to porn scholars for decades, it’s said that screenings of the professor’s porno became a routine occurrence, and a spectacular Tulane tradition was born.

In time, Tulane University Campus Programming took over screening duties for the adult video and diversified. The organization screened such gems as “Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?,” an adult film in which Sarah Palin lookalike Lisa Ann portrays the 2008 vice presidential candidate, and “This Ain’t Avatar XXX,” an adult parody of the hugely successful 2009 sci-fi/fantasy film. It was great fun: Students attended in droves to howl with laughter at the abhorrent dialogue, poke fun at the wooden acting and maybe even pick up a few moves to bring back to their significant others. It became the TUCP event of the season, and a semester highlight for many — until it disappeared.

The most recent TUCP porn screening took place in 2010. For the last two years, McAlister Auditorium has sat in silence, bereft of the contrived cinematic trysts that the students had come to cherish. When questioned as to why the program ended, TUCP representatives said that the screenings were discontinued because the TUCP Cinema Chair at the time was morally uncomfortable with it. Cancelling the screenings for this reason might be a legitimate argument for a puritanical, repressed northeastern university, but this is Tulane.

The annual student performance of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is far raunchier than some pornography. Besides, this is New Orleans — not a city known for its decorum and restraint. A few weeks ago, a parade float festooned with erect phalluses majestically floated through the center of our fair city.

The Tulane Hullabaloo asks TUCP to reinstate the annual porn viewings. It brings the student body together, it brings the students’ bodies together, and it’s harmless fun. Some great advancements occurred in the porn industry during the last couple of years. With any luck, maybe McAlister Auditorium soon will see the likes of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer XXX: A Parody” or “The Graduate XXX: A Paul Thomas Parody.”
