Hello lovely gentlemen: the Vagina Monologues want you! Go celebrate sexual Wednesday with VagMons, PCUW, ASAP, and 1 in 4 as they host “A Call to Men”, an event dedicated to examining and challenging the socialization of men. Ted Bunch, co-founder of A Call to Men, will be speaking about male social norms, culture, and traditional images of manhood.
As if the promo’s charming lads haven’t excited you enough (check your pulse), the event supports a national movement to end violence.
When: Wednesday, December 4th 6:30-8:30PM Where: JMHH G06 Who: Men (see title) and women.
Dear readers, we heard your frantic cries, and we’ve responded accordingly. Everyone’s second-favorite weekly roundup is back! So let’s get down to the nitty gritty, shall we? Here’s what’s hitting campus this week.
If you’ve somehow escaped the Locust Vagina in the past week, or aren’t in a pledge class that makes attendance mandatory, you might not know about the Vagina Monologues on campus this Friday and Saturday in Irvine. This year marks the 15th production of the Vagina Monologues at Penn, and all proceeds from the effort go to WOAR, the only full-service rape crisis center in Philadelphia. It’s the perfect spot for all Wharton, hipster, and existential vaginas (or non-vaginas) this weekend (see above).
In an effort to make all squirmy students uncomfortable, the Vagina Monologues are deeming today “CyberPussy Day” and they’re encouraging every student to donate a few dollars to the effort through Venmo or PayPal. For those motivated by competition, they’ll be giving a shout out in the program to whoever donates the most today. And for those motivated by screamed obscenities, head to Locust Walk. We hear there’ll be a lot of that this week.
Are you the bee’s knees in bed? Buzz off (JKJK we luv u bb, stay). Regardless of your sexual prowess, VagMons is co-sponsoring an educational workshop regarding S-E-X from which even the sexiest of sexy sexters can learn.
The workshop, led by renowned Human Sexuality educator and consultant(!!!) Al Vernacchio, is titled “Have Great Sex: Optimizing Your Sex Life” and will be nothing like the Sex Ed you experienced in middle school (looking at you, “educational” “pamphlets”). Check out the dirrty deetz below:
Still alive? Congrats! Looks like you’ve survived snowpocalypse 2k12. Pat yourself on the back with this week’s Street.
Street‘s all about the romance this week. Film’s got some helpful suggestions of where to take your slam piece after a movie. Food & Drink plays (and wins) matchmaker. And Arts keeps it classy as always, with an adorable DIY bookmark perfect for your paperback erotica.
But if you’re more the type who wants to punch those heart-shaped balloons every time you walk by CVS, Feature has an escape route to West Philly.
Ego’s got the girls behind the vagina costumes. Music has some advice for all you sucka frat DJs. Lowbrow’s got the 411 on how to get out of hazing (shoutout to the UA! holla!) And, as always, Highbrow brings you the gossip, where the special musical guest this week is Kweder.
Writer’s meeting tonight! We want you. 4015 Walnut. 6:30.
Tabard and SDT and some other girls made a Vagina Monologues video in preparation for their big shows this Friday and Saturday. The vid’s got vaginas in Van Pelt, vaginas in Pottruck, vaginas in an a cappella rehearsal (think “gyn-gyn-gyn” instead of “djinn-djinn-djinn”) and even Ken Kweder asking around for a vagina (!). LOL! It’s funny because ‘vagina’ is not a word you usually say in public, but– and get this– they’re saying it in public!
But honestly, we’re being a bit harsh. Props to VagMons for the best Penn promotional vid we’ve seen… well, ever.
It seems like just yesterday we were putting on our Uggs and North Face black Denali jackets as we headed we headed to class, lunch at Gia and then back home to make ~*super cute*~ posters for our littles! LOL!!! Well, now that the weather is getting warmer and we’re taking off all our clothes (Teehee!), it’s time to take a look at what’s going down on campus this week.
Open Bar for Vagina Monologues Who: UPenn Vagina Monologues When and where: Tuesday, 8 p.m.–midnight; City Tap House Why: For $20, you can enjoy the delights of an open bar and get absurdly drunk on a Tuesday. But it’s okay, because all proceeds go towards great charities. Yay! Vaginas!
