Porn flick ‘Pirates II’ dubbed better alternative to drinking or other dangerous activities

Washington, Apr 3 (ANI): After screening of the porn film ‘Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge’ was cancelled, a member of Maryland University’s student union has said that it would have been a good alternative to drinking or other dangerous activities.

The screening was to take place at the University of Maryland, College Park, this weekend.

“We thought this would be something fun for the students to do, especially since we’re getting close to the end of the semester,” the Baltimore Sun quoted Lisa Cunningham, a program coordinator for the union’s Hoff Theatre, as saying.

“We’re a college movie theatre and we thought it would bring out the students,” she said.

The university’s student union had four years ago showed Deep Throat, the classic 1972 porn film, but Linda Clement, vice president for student affairs at Maryland, has said that officials would now discuss future screening of any porn films at the institute.

Clement also said the decision to cancel the film was her own and based on a variety of factors.

“I think people were concerned about portrayal of women, concerned about violence, concerned about our students and decision-making processes,” she said.

“We were losing sight of the educational value that might come from some kind of exercise like this, so it just seemed like the best thing to do,” she added. (ANI)
