We play with each other, our selves, through manipulating power, altering gender, and discovering toys, in any place we can find. We abstain, and we ravage. We have one-night stands and long relationships, all within and breaking any boundaries we might imagine. We can make love, but from fisting to feathers, we also F—.
Hopefully you will all email me asking for advice, and I will come up with amazing elaborate answers.
Ex: Q. I have freezer-pop fetish. How do I get my partner involved? And what do I do when we reach the cold Ohio winter?
Domination and Submission make up the heart of BDSM. While BDSM includes more than can be imagined, the majority of BDSM involves power imbalances. It is tantalizingly erotic to dominate someone, and there’s something equally thrilling about submitting. The role you take is a matter of personal preference, and just as both morning and midnight passions are thrilling, and menthol and warming lube each have their place, dominating and submitting differ but can be equally sexy.
I have always had an obsession of sorts with food. Surprisingly, the Campus Dining Services here at Oberlin have in no way hindered my drive to create elaborate and well-seasoned meals. I entered Stevie on Saturday evening with one goal: to craft a surprisingly delicious dinner using the seemingly mundane materials at hand. Pushing past students who coddled plates of food that mimicked the color palate of the Sahara desert, I began my search for culinary excellence at the salad bar.
Ranch dressing is the universal American condiment. It adorns salads, French fries, pizza, Buffalo wings, and pretty much anything that would taste better with a large, white glob of fat sprawled on top of it. I somewhat shamelessly discovered a new use for ranch dressing’s tangy creaminess at Stevie on Thursday night when my friend asked me to recreate one of his favorite dishes from back home: penne with pink sauce.
First of all, as less than cautious potheads, you are all very lucky to be doing your law breaking in this state. Ohio is one of 13 states to have some sort of marijuana decriminalization. I’ve noticed some confusion on this campus and elsewhere about what exactly decriminalization means, so let me clarify:
Sometimes you wish that you had an extra hand, or mouth during sex. Maybe bringing more than one friend to bed (or couch, floor, shower, etc.) lets you play with different gender dynamics, or maybe it satisfies your voyeurism or exhibitionism. Maybe you want to bring some more friends into your fun and play with some new types of relationships, or maybe you just want to try something new and would like a little extra help and a little more party in something that is good with two, but could be better with three, four, or more.
Almost two months have passed since I have devoured a hearty, home-cooked meal. As each week goes by, my hankering for a fresh-from-the-oven, as-good-as-mom-makes-it, lick-the-plate-worthy dinner grows substantially. The one thing I miss the most about my kitchen back home would have to be the expansive spice rack, a spinning rainbow of different fragrances and flavors, that sits proudly upon the counter. With a little help from the Stevie spice rack, I created a nostalgia-inducing Chicken Parmesan that I guarantee will warm your heart.
Students learned how to safely, and consensually, please a variety of genitalia this past Saturday during three sexual pleasure workshops held by SIC. The sessions were led by SIC staffers Sarah Burnette ’11, Laura Atack ’10, and Lisa Yanofsky ’12 as part of this year’s Safer Sex Week.
