Since 2008, thanks to fondling founding fathers Yannick Bindert ’10 (right, not naked) and Ben Kuller ’10 (not right, also not naked), Unlocked Magazine has been livening up the not-so-sexy world of Wesleyan publications with an unbridled glimpse at college sexuality. The popular sexzine, according to the Hartford Courant, “treads between artful and graphic.” (“‘This is not your sketchy uncle’s wank rag,’ the editorial board warned in the debut issue.”) It even made the local news that one time (and yeah, of course there was the obligatory Gawker-has-some-weird-grudge-against-Wesleyan-and-no-one-really-knows-or-cares-why post).
But I still think Wesleying’s Adam summed it up best, noting that Unlocked really just “falls into the category of ‘another student magazine that focuses on things students like to do’ . . . in this case, each other.”
Its founders have graduated (PSYCHE), and Gawker’s editors have apparently moved on with their lives, but Unlocked’s still going strong—and seeking a writing-savvy (and preferably not genophobic) underclassman to take on the role of Assistant Writing Editor. Details after the jump, via Elizabeth S. ’12:
Unlocked Magazine, Wesleyan’s student-run sex magazine, is looking for underclassmen (’14 & ’13) interested in training as an Assistant Writing Editor for the Spring 2011 issue. Together with the help of current writing editor Elizabeth S. ’12, you will help to determine the content that will be featured in this Spring’s issue and collaborate with all writing contributors in order to produce a polished product.
Ideal candidates for the position of Assistant Writing Editor should have excellent writing, communication, and organizational skills, as well as an open mind and a healthy interest in writing and learning about sex.
