The Orgasm Chronicles

imgpress

Spring is definitely in the air and as the end of the semester draws near, some sweet summer lovin’ is in sight! With so many orgasms on the horizon, let’s take a look back through the sexual histories of a few brave Wes students by asking just two simple questions: What is the story of the first time you came? And what is the story of the most recent time you came?

Here, we recount the first and last orgasms of some sexy Wesleyan sharers. All names have been changed to aliases chosen by the interviewee for the sake of privacy.

Film Screening: Including Samuel

Including-Samuel-DVD---EDU-Version__33991_zoom

From Andrew Ribner ’14:

Come join WSDR and WesJustEd in a screening of Including Samuel:

“Before his son Samuel was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, photojournalist Dan Habib rarely thought about the inclusion of people with disabilities. Now he thinks about inclusion every day. Shot and produced over four years, Habib’s award-winning documentary film, Including Samuel, chronicles the Habib family’s efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives. The film honestly portrays his family’s hopes and struggles as well as the experiences of four other individuals with disabilities and their families. Including Samuel is a highly personal, passionately photographed film that captures the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion.”

**Dinner will be provided!**

Date: Wednesday, February 27
Time: 6:30 pm – 8 pm
Place: PAC001

Stride of Pride: Calling for an End to Slut-Shaming

tumblr_mc5q9dFF8t1qbnb83o1_500

Let’s salute our fellow cross-campus, early-morning weekend travelers (some of whom I have encountered on repeated occasions and hope to one day courageously approach in an effort to develop some sort of a friendship based on mutual sleep deprivation and the reprise of last night’s outfit, but my social skills are somewhat lacking) and offer them an alternative to the disgusting and extremely sexist use of the term “Walk of Shame.” I mean, let’s not try and sugarcoat it; sometimes the walk back to your own room after a night of adventure can feel a little shameful.

But it shouldn’t.

The ubiquitous “Walk of Shame” talk needs to stop. We enjoy the less common but much more empowering term “Stride of Pride.” It’s a gender-neutral way to describe a guilt-free sunrise walk back to one’s own room. It’s really unacceptable that women are still made to feel ashamed for expressing their sexuality or exercising their right to engage in casual, sexual relationships in a way men have been been applauded for doing for years. Everyone should have the freedom to feel proud of their choices, whether or not those choices involve any sexual activity. Also, you can be doing a stride of pride for any number of reasons! Just got a free cup of coffee? Stride of pride it up!
