Tomorrow (Thursday) from 7 – 9 PM in Bennett (long live Fauver) Lounge, Rosy Capron ’14 and Brendan O’Donnell ’14 will be facilitating the final Privilege and Policy at Wesleyan discussions. The topic this week will be sex, gender, and relationships at Wesleyan.
Things that might come up include male-female ratios of faculty and students in different departments, treatment of male vs. female sports teams, gendered spaces (bathrooms, program houses, Greeks) on campus, the queer community, the privileging of males over females in admissions, services provided (or not provided, or costs not covered) at the Health Center for trans* students, treatment of queer students by faculty, staff, and students, sexual assault, and anything else you would like to discuss.
Please join us this evening for the discussion!
Date: Thursday Nov 7
Time: 7PM to 9PM

A lovely invitation from Natalie Sacks ’14:
Interested in what an English thesis might look like? How about creative nonfiction, classical music or sex? This Tuesday, Julia Conrad ’14 will be giving a talk on her thesis topic, “Sex and the Symphony.” Come listen to how she chose the topic, what research she has done so far, and whatever else you have questions about. Whether you’re considering writing a thesis yourself or just a fan of the topic, we’d love to have you.
This event is part of the English Major Talk Series sponsored by the Majors’ Committee, so stay tuned next semester for more thesis talks!
Date: November 5, 2013
Time: 4:15 PM – 5:00 PM
Place: Downey House Room 113
Love your peers? Love health? Love advocacy?

Apply to be a PHA HERE by noon on Fri. Sept. 27!
Drop a line to weswell(at)wesleyan(dot)edu if you have any questions.
Miriam Olenick ’13 writes in about the campus publication most likely to elicit amusing reactions from your parents this weekend (yes, that’s the cover pictured above):
Unlocked, Wesleyan’s art and sexuality magazine, is HAWT off the press and ready for purchase. Copies are $5 a piece, but if you can show me where your work/sexy modeling is you get a free copy!
Sam Maldonado ’13, Stefan Skripak ’13, and I will be selling copies from our respective homes until we get kicked out of this place on Monday. If you’re not here for senior week, Unlocked will be selling again at the beginning of next semester. We’re sorry for the delayed gratification — we had a bit of a struggle with our printers.
For now, contact me at (917) 371 8501, Sam at (413) 328 5406, or Stefan at (215) 527-9002 and we’ll figure out a time/place to get you a copy.
Contact: Sam Maldonado ’13, Stefan Skripak ’13, or Miriam Olenick ’13
Cost: $5 an issue
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.
Coming at you from the world’s sexiest peer health educator, Jeanne McPhee ’13:
The annual quest for sexual health knowledge and prizes comes at you tomorrow at lunch in Usdan.
Race a buddy in a condom race, learn how to guard yourself from stalkers, and take photos using sexy consent phrases. Along the way, collect prizes and give-a-ways from each of the tables scattered around Usdan. If you visit all of the stations, you will be entered into a drawing to win a high end sex toy like this
, or this!
Come join us, you sexy folk you.
Date: Thursday, April 25
Time: 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM
Place: Usdan Tables
For more on condom usage at Wesleyan, read this.
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?
You might hear the terms “sex” and “gender” tossed around quite a bit at Wesleyan— but why exactly do these continue to be such pressing issues in our country’s public sphere? Alanna Greco ’13 invites you to, perhaps, find out why, as the 26th annual Diane Weiss memorial explores this topic :
The Diane Weiss ’80 Memorial Lecture is an annual FGSS lecture that
the family of one of the first Women’s Studies majors at Wesleyan
endowed in her memory. This year, “Sex, Gender and Public Life”
explores both why sex and gender remain such persistent issues in the
U.S. public sphere, and also why they remain persistently separated
from issues of government and economics in that same public

Think writing is the only thing going on in those thesis carrels? Think again.
You’ve heard about theses about sex. You’ve also heard about theses that are not about sex. But have you heard about the sex… about theses? (‘About’ there being used as a preposition to indicate proximity or nearness, and here being used to indicate overly pretentious grammatical analysis.)
Anyway, if you’re a senior frantically trying to make whole chapters coherent (or written), you received a survey a few weeks ago (inspired by this old Argus article from the 1995) about how much sweet sweet sexin’ you’ve been getting in your carrel (or not carrel) in between the coffee runs. About 20 percent of you managed to fill it out, and by the looks of it the rest of you were too busy bangin’ to complete the survey. Here are the results, with a few choice excerpts:
Have you ever had sex in your carrel? Yes: 48% (56% at least masturbated)
“Yep. Haven’t really been able to concentrate in my carrel ever since.”
“Yes. I’ve spent more time having sex in my carrel than working there.”
“yes, oral. but planning on having vaginal intercourse in my carrel soon.”
“Yes, both masturbation and with a partner. We found the chair and desk especially useful surfaces.”
This seems like a good combo with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, via SART Intern Rachel Verner ’15:
Like getting down and dirty to Rihanna? Do chains and whips excite you? Come talk about ways to enjoy the kinkiest forms of sex, while keeping it safe and consensual. Also, consider it a meet and greet with your like-minded peers. So whether you like being tied up or tied down, whether you want to be bitten or like to bite, we have something for everyone. Check out the Facebook Event for more details.
Date: Today, April 11
Place: Usdan 108 (ooooh baby)
