Sex the Sex with WeSex

Willa Sexman ’15 sent you a sext:

Sex things are great! Ten thousand emails a week are overwhelming! Let’s do more sex things with fewer emails!

Message wbeckman(at)wesleyan(dot)edu to be added to the WeSex listserv and get a weekly email on all sex (and health and queer) things at Wesleyan. Updates from ASHA, the PHAs, the SART Intern, We Speak We Stand, SFCC, Take Back The Night, the Clinic Escorts, Unlocked, and QueerWes will be combined and sent out in one (really just one I promise!) message letting you know all of the things going on during the week, how to get involved, and where to get free condoms and sex toys.

Involved in a sex-related group that isn’t part of WeSex? Email wbeckman(at)wesleyan(dot)edu about your group to get on the list!

In Store for a New Pair of Undies?


SART Intern Rachel Verner ’15 wants you to look good for Undies in Olin to make your conversations about consent a little sexier:

Let your laundry pile grow a little while longer with a few extra pairs of underwear. And even better, help promote sexual consent while you rock your new duds. All underwear are marked with the logo “assk” to remind you both to seek and give consent, and proceeds will be going towards sexual violence prevention. There are 5 styles options, and 3 colour choices for each. Once the shipment comes in, we will have Iron-On Transfer Stations where you can personalize your underwear with your own phrases of consent.

Order here by April 9th!

Cost: $10/pair or 3 paris for $25Payments can be made to Rachel Verner ’15 (SART Intern), Christian Hosam ’15 (Dwight Greene Intern), and Katy Thompson ’15 (QRC Intern).

Keep an eye on the Facebook Event for details on where and when we’ll be collecting money. All underwear is a product of American Apparel Wholesale.

Former Student Files Suit Against University

I’ve been trying to figure out how to start off this post and I’m not sure I’ll do better than the Hartford Courant: “A former Wesleyan University student who was assaulted two years ago during a Halloween fraternity party filed a federal lawsuit Friday accusing the school of failing to protect her from dangers at [Beta Theta Pi] fraternity, which she claims was known on campus as the ‘Rape Factory.’ ” In an extremely brief article, the Courant notes that one ‘Jane Doe’ of Maryland has filed a 27-page lawsuit in the US District Court of Connecticut, alleging that the University violated Title IX by failing to “warn or otherwise take corrective action” against the fraternity that could have prevented the assault.

As many of you may know, Beta was the primary subject of some controversy very recently, as the University, in the midst of a smoldering disagreement with Beta, changed its housing policy to specifically declare that “Wesleyan students will be prohibited from residing in—or using for social activities—houses or property owned, leased or operated by private societies that are not recognized by the University,” which essentially meant that the University could punish you for eating dinner at a ‘unrecognized’ church, or secret society, or a cupcake shop, or a strip club, or pretty much anything else. Needless to say, some people were pretty confused and pretty pissed.

Revolutionary Self-Care: Building Healthy and Diverse Relationship Skills

SART Intern Rachel Verner ’15 and Sexual Violence Resource Coordinator Alysha Warren invite you:

Having thriving relationships with others starts with caring for and understanding ourselves. Join us in a lively conversation where we will reflect, share experiences and learn new skills to create thriving relationships.

Through this workshop, we will examine and think of new ways to care for ourselves and others, gain deeper understanding of our desires, needs and boundaries, and develop effective ways to communicate and manage conflict in relationships.
