Lust, Lies, and Latex: Condom Qualms


This is a school where people are down to talk about sex. We’re more than eager to share stories of last night’s sexcapades with our friends. We advocate for consent and take a stand against sexual violence. We’re open to going to lectures, taking classes, and engaging in discussions about sex. So at a school where everyone is so gung-ho about sex, why do people still seem to be confused about condoms (this is not how it’s done)?

Of course, there are many ways to have safe, consensual, positive sexual experiences as well as tons of different forms of birth control. But if you are using condoms, you may relate to some of these struggles. From the humorous to the disturbing, here are some of the best and worst anecdotes and experiences we’ve heard lately about the plight of the condom. Who knew a thin layer of latex could be so controversial and amusing?

Wesleyan Window Woes: A Lesson in Glass-Related Indecency


Have you ever casually walked by a room and accidentally witnessed some passionate afternoon delight?

Whether you’re the emotionally scarred bystander or the poor soul whose ass became the unfortunate target of public spectacle, you know the struggle that Wesleyan windows can pose for campus lovers. So unless you happen to be a nudist, exhibitionist, or get a kick out of public indecency, we have a few words of wisdom to prevent future embarrassment: CLOSE THE BLINDS AND DON’T TOUCH THE GLASS.

In order to really hammer (get it?) the message home, we have collected for you a few sad but true tales of Wesleyan Window Woes. So absurd and humiliating you think it’s a joke. But no, dear friends, this is real life.
