From WesWell comes this announcement:
Check out all of the sexy events during Sexual Health Week (April 20-24)! Brought to you by WesWell & your friendly Peer Health Advocates!
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!
From Becca Waxman ’16:

It’s Friday/Valentine’s Day! You know what that means? Time to get that sweet sweet consensual lovin’ on! (Though let’s be fair, it should always be that time). We wanted to take this time to remind everyone about access to protection on campus, so we asked Willa Beckman ’15, who works for WesWell, a few questions:
Students can get condoms for free on campus?? What’s the deal with that?
Yes! Students can get SO MANY CONDOMS FOR FREE ON CAMPUS. We have a whole wall of condoms in the WesWell office at Davison Health Center. Come by and grab some! Also, if you work for reslife, you should come pick up one of our pre-made goodie bags to keep your residents protected all the time!
From Emily Moody ’15:

Sex can be fun!!! :D
So, listen up. Greta Ramdin ’12, Michelle Agresti ’14, Caillin Puente ’15, Virgil Taylor ’15, and Enjie Romero-Garcia ’12 writes in:
Take Back the Night started in the ’70s. We march to raise awareness about sexual violence and demonstrate support for those, regardless of gender, who have been abused or assaulted. We gather as a community to march across campus to form speak out circles. At these circles assault survivors are invited to share their stories with friends and supporters. A candle light vigil marks the end of this experience, and a capella groups will be performing songs at the beginning of the march and at the speak-out circle.
Date: Tonight (April 19)
Time: 7.30pm – 10.00pm
Place: Starts on the Olin steps, moves around campus after that
