Survey: Librarians get frisky in stacks
upi. ^ | April 19, 2010

NEW YORK, - A 1992 survey of 5,000 U.S. librarians, long withheld by a professional journal, found one in five respondents had engaged in sexual trysts among the stacks.

Will Manly, who said the New York-based Wilson Library Bulletin withheld the results of his survey in 1992, published results recently on his Web site indicating 51 percent of librarians in the early 90s were willing to pose nude for money and 61 percent of respondents admitting to renting an X-rated film, the New York Daily News reported Monday.

Manly said the survey questions were printed in the now-defunct journal, but bosses withheld the results and fired him for the saucy survey, which he said received 5,000 responses from librarians.

The survey also found 22 percent of respondents believed condom dispensers in library bathrooms would be a good idea and 14 percent said they had been sexually harassed by a patron.

Uh, wake up you're having your fantasy dream about the librarian again!

Being of age and all, I seem to recall close encounters usually involve noise. How did they get by that problem since libraries are supposed to be places of quiet concentration?

I guess this explains why librarians oppose filters and allow molesters to surf unmolested as it were. Some kind of kinship there.

Mostly the only librarians I’ve known are morbidly obese men and old hags.

Most of the librarians in my area have the tattooed pierced spaced out druggie liberal sort of look going on.

The stereotype of a closed collar clean cut fastidious woman does not seem to exist in our library system.

Never judge the contents of a book by its cover...or the libido of people by their appearance!

I meant to imply that I never saw any librarians I might’ve wished to engage in schtupulatory relations (nor any teachers).

No such thing as bad publicity.
