Northwestern Sex Week came to an end the evening of Friday, April 15, after five days and 12 sex-positive events.
Sponsored by Northwestern College Feminists, the week of programming is aimed at a campus where smart students are often pretty dumb about sex.
“The main goal [of sex week] is distributing sex education and information and also to create awareness by looking at gender and sexuality and destigmatizing certain types of sex or certain types of people that are associated with sex,” said Weinberg junior Wan Kwok, a co-chair of Sex Week.
What's that look like? Burlesque, anal sex and more.
With events ranging from BDSM 101 to a panel about porn from the people who make it, co-chair Cristina Polencia said Sex Week is important because it covers a wide array of topics that encourages people to talk about safe sex and promote healthy sexuality.
“Sometimes people are uncomfortable, and I ...

“Make sure that she agrees before you give her the D.”
“Don’t be a schmuck, get a ‘YES!’ before you F#CK.”
“Intoxication is not an invitation.”
These are just some examples of the unique condoms manufactured by Say It With A Condom, a New York-based company churning out custom-designed condoms. The designs on the wrappers range from sexually-charged political puns (think: “The Ultimate Stimulus Package”) to more meaningful – but still hilarious – slogans, such as the ones above, all meant to raise awareness and facilitate dialogue about sexual consent.
Intrigued by the idea of breaking down the “taboos” surrounding the topic of sex, sophomore Alaina McCaffrey was drawn to the campaign’s goals and became a campus rep for Say It With A ...
It’s the age-old Northwestern battle of the creative minds versus the jocks, Lisa’s versus Fran’s, engineers versus actors, North Campus versus South Campus. Here’s a hypothetical situation: let’s say a Northwestern student apocalypse were to take place, and each half of campus were to defend themselves. Imagine a battleground in the middle of Deering Meadow. Clouds hang low overhead; nothing is in bloom. Tired college students move sluggishly, using their heavy backpacks, grumpy attitudes and laptop stickers to battle it out for campus dominance. Let’s see how this pans out by assessing each side's best strengths:
