MTV seeks college sex columnists

Attention: college sex columnists!

mtvU, MTV's college and university network, is looking for undergraduate campus sex columnists for a new series with Dr. Ruth Westheimer.

"Ideally we are looking for deeply thoughtful, highly engaging, cogent writers who are hopefully going more in-depth in their columns or who have strong points of view about what is burbling on their campus," says Caroline Kim, an associate producer for mtvU.

To participate, students must be sex columnists for their college papers. Those selected will work as on-camera field correspondents.

The network is interested in assembling a diverse group of students for these positions. "The overwhelming majority of student sex columnists are white women so anyone outside of this is great," Kim says. "We are trying to get students in all different parts of the country at different types of schools (i.e., large state schools and small colleges) as well, and I am currently trying to find a student in the deep South."

Interested? Send an e-mail to Caroline Kim at, telling about yourself and why you would be a good correspondent for a show about sexual health and relationships. Be sure to include your name, school, year and a writing sample if you have one.

Just think, you could be the next Dr. Ruth.
