College sex: Berkeley edition

Sex on Tuesday

Because I couldn’t afford to fly home the day before Thanksgiving this past week, I spent all of Wednesday in Berkeley. I only had one class that day, and the campus was marvelously empty. So at around 4:20 p.m., I called up my partner, and as two mischievous UC Berkeley

Deconstructing relationships

Sex on Tuesday

This confession is a first for me. The thought of being in a relationship scares the living shit out of me. The relationship I’m referring to is the exclusive, long-term, monogamous kind. The kind that people most commonly consider to be a romantic relationship. To me, being in a relationship

Here is one of the most important words in the English language: con·sent /kənˈsent/ Noun: Permission for something to happen or agreement to do something.

The triple threat

Sex on Tuesday

Me: “Oh my goodness, you and your girlfriend are so cute.” Couple: “Wow, thanks.” Me: “Yeah, you really are an attractive couple. I would love to fuck with the two of you sometime.” This is an interaction I often have when I’m out and usually drunk. Since I’m not trying

Think sex-positive

Sex on Tuesday

One of the best things that ever happened to me was learning how to be sex-positive, thanks to some of the wonderful people I have met at Berkeley. Sex-positive isn’t a term that most people are familiar with. But it signifies exactly what it says — acknowledging that sex can

Dirty habits die hard

Sex on Tuesday

I have the porn habits of an adolescent boy. Whenever I have convenient breaks in my schedule I’ll come home after class, eat a snack, watch some porn, rub one out, and go back to campus. During breaks when I spend weeks back home in Southern California with nothing to do, I’ll hole up in my room and watch videos up to five, six, seven times a day. Porn is also fun to watch recreationally when I’m not trying to get off — the full length films with real plots and mind-blowing acting are my favorite.

The (second) first time

Sex on Tuesday

I was nervous, drunk and extremely self-conscious. For a minute we just stared at each other, and I couldn’t believe adorable skater girl was actually in my room. And then we collided and started making out and shoving and stripping. She knew exactly what to do and exactly what I wanted.

Going out with a (sappy) bang

Sex on Tuesday

“Did you just finish?” “Uh, yeah.” “Cool. Just checking.” OK, that was an anticlimactic ending to my middle-of-the-night screw session with my ex-boyfriend-turned-fuck-buddy a few days ago, but it really was the end of it. I don’t think I’m usually the type to have grand reflections on life during such

Saddling up for “shark week”

Sex on Tuesday

“Ew, no! That’s sooooo gross!” Sound familiar? Yeah, that’s probably the response you’ve been given, or have given, to the suggestion of period sex. Actually, that’s also the response that one of the advice columnists of a certain Southwestern college newspaper gave to a reader wondering if she should suggest
