Lets Talk About Sex, Baby

February 2, 2015  |   Found in Editorial // Student Life


Sex Week is upon us! Running from Feb. 2 - 6 and hosted by the Students’ Union, Q Centre, the SU Wellness Centre, and the Women’s Resource Centre, this week is chalk full of answers you’ve always wanted to know to questions you’ve never wanted to ask. Ever wonder if you could be allergic to someone’s semen? Is foreplay overrated or underrated? What does LGBTQABCDEFG++ stand for? Come and find out! Sex Week will be starting with the annual Sex Week Carnival from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the North Courtyard and will continue through the week with various workshops, lectures, and discussions all around Mac Hall. Learn about things like BDSM, healthy relationships, and stuff about sex toys.

What with games like hit-the-clit and people running around wearing giant penis and vulva costumes (yeah that’s right, these are real things that happen), Sex Week might sound like some weird pre-April fools prank to you. But all jokes aside, sexual and gender wellness covers some important topics in our modern day world and especially on campus. So drop your ego at the door and come participate in Sex Week. You could learn some excellent tips for when you’re in the sac, or think you’ve met the person of your dreams. Maybe you can even volunteer to be the giant penis next year. Otherwise, stay sexy friends.

Naughty word count:

  1. Sex
  2. Semen
  3. Clit
  4. Penis
  5. Vulva
