Cambridge University magazine going topless

Highlight Story

For the first time, a Cambridge University magazine has published a photograph of a topless female undergraduate student.

The unnamed blonde was snapped in a black and lacy thong with stockings as she posed on the Clare College bridge, one of the city’s historic bridges, which goes over the River Cam, with a cigarette in her hand.

The student from Homerton College agreed to pose for the latest edition of Vivid magazine, which is published by a group of students once a term and has a circulation of over 5,000 across Britain, the British media reported.

The magazine is distributed to all the university colleges.

It has featured “page three” girls before but none have been as explicit. The magazine is largely constituted of comment pieces of a political and satirical nature. So, the latest publication has caused an uproar among many university students.

“I can’t believe she agreed to pose for the magazine. Everyone has been talking about it. I’m sure she must really regret it now,” an unnamed student from the King’s College was quoted as saying.

Another student, from Clare College, who also did not want to be named, added: “Lots of students and professors have seen this. It’s a very risky thing to do when you are studying at one of the top universities in the country.” However, neither the Editors of the magazine nor the university’s press office was available for comment.
