Class of '84 aiming for
money, power, and status

WASHINGTON (AP)-This year's
college freshmen appear more
materialistic than any other recent en-
tering class and a record number are
headed for business careers, according
to a national survey of more than a
quarter-million students.
The poll conducted by the University
of California at Los Angeles and the
American Council on Education found

63 per cent of the students rated "being
very well off financially" as one of their
top goals in life. Lasts year, 60 per cent
felt that way and in 1967 only 44 per cent
cited it as a main objective.
UCLA Prof. Alexander Astin, direc-
tor of the survey, said, "This increased
materialism has also been accom-
panied by increased student interest in
power and status."

INFLATABLE PARTY dolls, which come in a variety of styles, are purchased as surrogate sexual partners and for

(Continued from Page 1)

er tonight!" "Boobs & Busts,"
ondage," "Young Angels," and
"Lesbian" are some of the titles.
MANY OF the men who go into the
stores are attracted predominantly by
the hardcore sex publications. Some of
the magazines depict male homosexual
acts or chain-bound women over whom
stand grisly creatures wreaking havoc
on them with whips.
In the back of the store, a sign above
a dark archway reads "Art movies,
" For a quarter, a movie-goer can
90 seconds of a 15-minute porn
movie, about which Campbell said:
"There is no pretense to a plot."
Two movies are shown in each of 22
three foot by three foot booths, each of
which is equipped with wooden ben-
ches, linoleum floors, and doors that
latch shut.
SOME OF the customers go directly
to the counter, ask the clerk to change
several dollar bills into a handful of
*arters, and head for the X-rated
movie booths. Other people make quick
purchases and leave, while still others
just browse, which costs them fifty cen-
ts.
"Some people spend hours in here
just browsing," Campbell said.
"There's no time limit. I've seen people
spend six hours in the store."
And there are plenty of things to look
at and purchase in the stores. Fourth
Avenue Book Store deals mainly with
goks and magazines, most wrapped in
"astic, many with catchy titles like
Leggy Beaver, Sophisticated Bondage,
Swedish Nymphs, and Master of Sub-
jugation.
AN ASSORTMENT of dildos,
vibrators, and hand-held massage kits
take up a good portion of one long wall.
They make their appeal according to
shape ("Curved Invader"), size (a 20-
inch dildo with heads on both ends), and
elf-improvement ("John Holmes Per-
nal Enlarger").
There' are also the infamous in-
flatable party dolls - sad, blue-eyed
plastic things with gaping mouths,

which, at the pull of a string, squeal
such niceties as "I love it, I love it,"~ or
"I like to please you." They cost $24.95,
complete with repair kit.
Unlike the Fourth Avenue Book
Store, the Velvet Touch thrives on its
massage parlors. For $28 per half-hour,
you can get a "light finger-tip
massage" from either a masseur or
topless masseuse. The patrons climb
the stairs near the front of the store,
where they meet the "models" - as
Steve refers to them - and make their
selection.
"IT'S A SEXUAL massage rather
than a physical therapy massage,"
Steve explained, maintaining that
periodic checks are made of the
massage rooms to prevent
"illegalities."
,"There's the idea that models will do
a little extra for a tip, and some of these
models - yeah, they accept tips. But
this is not a prostitution den," he added.
Contrary to popular myth, it is not the
dirty old men in stained black raincoats
whq frequent pornography stores.
Young and old, black and white, studen-
ts, blue-collar and professional people
were seen in the stores. Employes of
both establishments claim they have
seen 'U' professors in their stores.
"WE GET quite a few regular
customers," Campbell said. "From 75
to 100 customers come here three or
four times a week. It's very much part
of their routine, part of their sex life."
Campbell said that some customers
collect magazines seriously for the
value they will have in the future, while
others collect as a hobby. He added that
many gays come into the book store,
most of whom watch the X-rated
movies.
"There is a very active gay crowd
that will use this as a meeting place,"
he said. "It's like a bar - it's a place to

make contacts."
THERE ARE also female customers:;
single women, often to buy some
lingerie, two or three wormen who look
around out of curiosity,' and male-
female couples, many of whom squeeze
into the small movie booths in order to,
as Steve puts it, "share the experience
together."
The pornography stores also appeal
to "swingers," or people who have sex
as a hobby, according to Steve and
Campbell. Several publications offer a
useful service to the swingers by
publishing phone numbers of interested
parties, or providing a contact service
for swingers who want to meet each
other.
Why do people seek employment in
what many call "smut shops?" Both
Campbell and Steve said they don't
bother with the moral questions that
are often raised.
"I THINK of it very much in mer-
chandising terms," Campbell said.
"I needed a job," he said, adding that
"my upbringing didn't prejudice me
against anything."
Campbell explained that except for
his sister, 'a lobbyist for ERA in
Washington, D.C., his family accepts
his employment. Campbell's mother is
an assistant director of the National
Council of Churches, and his father is a
corporate lawyer.
"It's unrealistic to be prejudiced
against someone who has different
ideas than me," explained Steve.
"I think if a wife wants her husband
to spank her butt," he said, "he should
be able to." Steve added that such
couples should be able to puchase any
device or publication that will make the
experience more fulfilling.
"If it's not suicidal or homicidal," he
said, "then it doesn't bother me what
people do."
