Study hall: Unsuspecting students at the Faculty of Law become victims of the Porn Man

«The Porn Man» raises eyebrows at the Faculty of Law: «I play porn in the study halls»

Someone going by the name «the Porn Man» is causing a stir amongst law students.

Imagine sitting in your study hall, ready to delve into paragraph twelve’s endless complexities. The coffee is freshly brewed, and you’re fully concentrated – until you become aware of a loud, exaggerated moaning. From…your desk?

Lately, a character known as «the Porn Man» has brought some awkwardness (or comedy, depending on who you ask) to the Faculty of Law. He has allegedly haunted study halls 150 and 160 at Domus Nova, where many law students spend their days.

There is some blushing

Universitas has been in contact with the alleged Porn Man.

«Sometimes school life becomes a bit tedious. The Porn Man [I?] generates some humor in the study hall, by putting a wireless speaker next to a computer and then playing porn sounds through that,» says the perpetrator.

He says the victims are usually fine with it, but mentions how his first victim yanked all the computer cables out in frustration, without being able to bring the noises to an end.

«There might be some blushing right there and then,» the porn man says.

From what Universitas knows, the Porn Man is a pseudonym for a small group of law students.

An anonymous hero

These escapades have set fire to Jodel, where he has been referred to as an «anonymous hero.» Several of the students Universitas has talked to have read Jodels about him – yet no one has actually been present during one of his stunts.

Law students Nora Arnkværn (22), Andrea Brynildsen (25) and Sandra Solbrekke (21) all agree that the stunts are actually quite funny.

«It’s amusing, that’s the first thing that hits me,» says Nora. «But if it’s excessive it might become disturbing in the long run.»

«Not okay»

Head Librarian at the Law Library, Anne Gunn Bekken, has not heard of the case. She does however condemn such behavior.

«If this is the case, it is definitely a violation of UiO’s IT and study hall regulations» says Bekken.

The Porn Man nevertheless believes the stunt usually results in laughter and general amusement.

«It’s amazing what the sound of porn for ten seconds can do!»
