Porn U

So an ASU frat boy showered with a porn star. Get over it.

"A woman's career in adult films is usually pretty short," she said. "You've really got to think about what comes next."

As for Brian, his life is currently wrapped up in trying to start school and stop administrators and fellow senators from hunting for his head.

Last week, Brian, as senate president, used a technicality to thwart an attempt by other student senators to vote for his dismissal. The trick delayed the vote until next week.

Since our interview two weeks ago, he has become much less willing to talk about the incident. He now directs most questions to his attorney. He's now describing his involvement in the film as "a mistake."

It's sad to watch Brian being forced to cower. It was much more inspiring to watch a young man stand tall for living the dream of every college guy in the history of American academia.

In my mind, Brian Buck did nothing more than get caught up in a cultural phenomenon sweeping American media -- the mainstreaming of porn.

Rock stars date porn stars to be real rock stars. Porn stars are the latest accessory for celebrities at gala events. Howard Stern spends half his show talking to porn stars. Characters on shows such as Friends and Will and Grace regularly talk about their porn collections.

British sociologist Brian McNair calls the new porno-chic phenomenon "the democratization of desire."

So Brian Buck was just fighting for democracy.

But all Buck wants now is to be allowed to quietly go on with his business.

Folks at ASU need to quickly honor his wishes.

Otherwise, considering all the porn sales the administration's hysterics already have inspired, every porn producer in the world will be showing up in Tempe to get a piece of the ASU porn pie.

If that happens, administrators will dream of the day ASU was known only as a party school.
