From Leah Bakely ’16:
Come to Motorboat Your Myths! This interactive workshop with Cassandra Corrado from the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health (where Oh Megan works) will address the sexuality myths you’ve heard and guide you through the facts about sexual health, sex positivity, safer sex, hook up culture, fun fondling, and orgasms. You will also have an opportunity to get your own questions answered. There will be prizes (read: vibrators, dildos, butt plugs, and things you’ve never even heard of).
Brought to you by the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health, Adolescent Sexual Health Awareness (ASHA), FGSS, and American Studies.
Date: Wednesday, November 18
Time: 7 PM – 9 PM
Place: Exley 150 (Tishler Hall)
As part of our In Depth student group series, Keren Reichler ’16 and Miriam Kudler-Flam ’16 were nice enough to sit down with me and talk about their new Zymurgy Collective. After being dormant for a couple years, this club has come back to handle all of your fermentation needs. Read on to learn more about fermentation, how to get involved, and the many possible synonyms for the word ferment that you have not thought of before.

Did you take a gap year? Do you like people? Do you you like eating free things? If you answered yes to any of these questions, come to the Gap Year Potluck and meet a bunch of other cool cats ;). All class years welcome.

“I’m still the cover photo right?” – Ed Thorndike ’89 of WesWings
We hope that everyone had a great Halloweekend (or, if you’re like me and didn’t realize that Halloween is a 3-4 night affair, we hope you had a great Halloween)!
Last week, we made a write-in for Halloween costumes. We received 23 costumes—up from last year’s turnout of only 7! Here’s a (moderately-sized) handful of costumes that people sent in to Wesleying that show off the spooky, creative, and downright weird Wesleyan spirit:
We were blessed with the NESCAC Snapchat story earlier this semester, but as you’ve probably noticed, 85% of the story is:
- A cappella groups singing
- People beating us at ~sports~
People Trinity students pretending to study (with books upside-down)
Did you submit a snap to the story that was utter brilliance but not selected for the elusive and exclusive NESCAC Snapchat story? Email us your rejected Snapchats at staff(at)wesleying(dot)org to be featured in an upcoming post.
It’s happened to the best of us. Read after the jump for some thoughts on the point system, harsh RAs and freshman innocence/stupidity.
The First Time I Got Written Up (astag_rocky)
For some reason, the basic freshman inside me loved the idea of bar night. Maybe it was the same way I felt about lanyards, until the second day of school when I realized how much you sucked if you left one waywardly dangling from your (most likely) beige khaki pants. Bar night represented a distinct difference between high school and college: the reprieve from the ills of the working week and the promise of doing some debaucherous shit on a Wednesday night. For sure, the Corner Pocket was no Vines on Church. In fact, it couldn’t have been in a more remote and random location in Middletown. But, you had to get some satisfaction knowing that if it weren’t for Wesleyan, The Corner Pocket probably would not exist (and I assume will soon file for bankruptcy now that Vines is open). One night, my freshman-self decided not to shut my turn-up off once I headed back to Clark, and I strode triumphantly out of the fourth floor elevator ready to conquer whatever was in my path.
Winter is coming, which means for a lot of people on campus, it’s cuffing season!
As the original Orgasm Chronicles post said, “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?”
Under an alias, these orgasm adventurers recounted their stories for our reading pleasure.
From Natacha Bielikoff, grad:
Come watch an awesome French movie, “La Nuit Américaine,” by François Truffaut. The movie will be in French but with English subtitles so everyone is welcome to join! Not a part of any French courses, just a French student trying to share her culture.

Over time, our Tipbox fills up with lots of random website recommendations, music from alumni and other miscellaneous things that we can’t always get to right away. But we promise, we hear you. As pre-finals procrastination sets in (and in preparation for our biennial Procrastination Destination series), we put together a post of some recent Tipbox submissions for you to check out and add to your list of things you’re doing instead of studying.
If you have inside knowledge, consider submitting us some tips!
