Write In: WEEEEEESSSSSSSSCCCCAAAAAAMMM

Wescam launched last Thursday and although it’s only been 6 days since then, I haven’t entered a single public space on campus without overhearing the noun (Wescam), the verb (wescam), the preterite form of the verb (wescammed), the gerund (wescamming), the adjective (wescammy), and/or occasionally the adverb (wescamly). And, as I mentioned in my previous announcement post, we are doing a write in!

Our past write-ins have been some of our most viewed articles ever. The Orgasm Chronicles now has 41,890 views. WOW.

How this works: (1) Submit an anonymous entry to the Google form after the jump, (2) Make sure you tell us a Wescam story; you won’t be posted if this isn’t tangentially or totally Wescam related, (3) Tell your friends and wescams to write in! We don’t always get a high enough volume of quality entries to warrant a post, and that should not happen. So tell people to submit!

WesKink Open Meeting

WesKink writes in:

Interested in kink/BDSM? Polyamory/non-mongamy? Just curious? WesKink offers a safe space to learn and explore!

Answer questions like:
Is kink always sexual?
How do I safely tie up my partner?
What does BDSM stand for?
How can I talk to my partner about what I want?
And more!

WesKink is a group for any Wesleyan student interested in kink, BDSM, non-monogamy and polyamory, or any other alternative sex/relationship practices. Our meetings provide a safe space for discussion of these topics open to people of all identities and experience levels. Together we learn about the wide variety of things under the kink umbrella, and how to explore those things safely and consensually!

Like all our meetings, this is open to the campus at large! Everyone is welcome, regardless of interest or experience level! This meeting will focus on defining kink and providing an idea of what WesKink is all about. We’ll pass around some toys, talk about kink, and get to know one another. Snacks will be provided!

Can’t make the meeting but interested? Email wesleyankink[at]gmail[dot]com to get on the listserve!

THESISCRAZY 2015: The “””Procrastination””” (Sex) Edition

481771_10151224732529870_761889112_nSo there’s that thing about Wesleyan being the horniest college, right? Well, part of that reputation might come from the fact that when busy seniors decide to pursue a year-long research project (re: thesis), most of them get a personal carrel in which to study/research/reach academic enlightenment. And when students hear about this simultaneously public and private space, the next question is easy: Have you had sex in it?

Thanks to a 1995 article from the Argus, it’s been a THESISCRAZY thing to ask you if you’ve been doing the boopity boop in your confined academic spaces. So if you’re a 2015er scrambling to wrap up what’s been a two-semester process, you received a survey a couple weeks ago about how you’ve been spending your time in your (or someone else’s) carrel. Out of the 97 carrel-having people doing theses this year, 33% responded to this bangin’ survey.

Let’s just say people really know how to get busy in their carrels. Find the results after the jump!
