This being Duke it is being portrayed by the entrepreneurial student as an issue of empowerment in responding to a culture of sexism

“I have always been a very sexual person, and I’m also bisexual, but I haven’t ever felt really welcome,” said [Belle]. “But when I’m in Pornland, I feel at home. This is where I’m meant to be, with these people who love sex and are comfortable about it.”...

I feel like girls at Duke have to hide their sexuality. We’re caught in this virgin-whore dichotomy,” she said. “Gender norms are very intense here and I feel like that’s particularly carried out by frats. I think that being a woman at Duke is extremely difficult. I think that being a sexual woman at Duke is extremely difficult.”...

“Feminism to me means advancing my personal liberty, my opportunity in the world, while also championing my body and my right to choose what to do with my body,”

Duke runs into one of these dust-ups every 4 years or so

There was the infamous lacrosse team hiring of the strippers in 2006 that resulted in the bogus rape charges

Then there was the 2010 incident where a senior prepared a PowerPoint deck that went viral where she rated the talents of numerous lacrosse players and other student athletes whom she had befriended

Now this - Duke is handling the PR from this latest incident pretty well - it's like being the Bengals and knowing you are going to get bad pub from arrests from time to time.

And it probably will cause a spike in applications from teenage boys who see a tremendous upside to going to class with girls who are porn stars.

So it's all good
