And this is why I hate freshman.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry...

So, we had an ice cream social on the floor, right? But the RAs wanted to talk to us about sex. You know, about being protected and all that, and then they wanted the girls and guys to ask each other questions.

Smart idea, right? Most of these kids are away from home for the first time, so it would be smart to teach them a little, yeah?

No one wanted to talk to each other. These are freshman, you must remember.

First, the RAs were talking about how the health center gives out free condoms. And then one of the guys asked if they had free female condoms, and the RAs didn't know. I can't blame them for this, since it's not clear that they have anything that isn't a latex male condom. But no one else knew, and so I wound up explain where you could get dental dams, female condoms, and non-latex stuff at the health center. (Note: I only know this because I was there today and saw a sign.)

And then one of the guys said something stupid about dental dams, and the guys had to explain it to him. And then the guys finally asked the girls if any of them didn't like cunnilingus (because apparently the dental dam guy refused to go down on girls, and the guys thought that was ungentlemanly not to at least reciprocate if not do it first). And get this:

Two thirds of the girls didn't even know what it was. Including the female RA. And I was the one who had to define it. Because the boys were all "you don't know?!" and the male RA is queer, so he's no use (though he knew what it was).

I'm now convinced that the half the floor that came to this event thinks I'm a whore.

My only though on this? If I'm going to be a thought a whore, I'd like to at lease be getting the sex, too. :D

The day before this was relatively boring, minus the GYN appointment I squeezed in between classes. That's a story rife with medical TMI, so it's in another post, which can be found directly before this one.

*sexes* Yea, I had no idea what a dental dam was before I came to uni. It's not really something that's discussed much at the high school level. :/

Yeah, I'm fine with not having a clue about what it is, but the guy thought it was something you put in your mouth. O.o

oh good *lord*.

that remind me of the time I attended a "toy" party and had to tell a bunch of married ladies how to find their clitoris, and how a cock ring worked.

*cough*

*that* was an interesting evening.

however, rock the fuck on, boys who thing refusing to give head is ungentlemanly. ROCK ON, I say.

That is a FABULOUS story. Also, I am so glad to know that there are plenty of guys who think it's ungentlemanly not to go down on a girl. I have so much hope for my future sex life right now.

Damn, where are these gentlemen and why do they not come to my school??

Go you for knowing things, and I wouldn't worry too much about them calling you a whore, you dun dress like it and random guys don't flock around you.

You don't want them, they were kind of jerky, otherwise. That being said, C says it's pretty wide-spread now. Who knows?

random guys don't flock around you

True, but it might be random girls if I ever meet any lesbians around here.

I am rather late to post this but I had no clue what a dental dam was until 2 weeks ago. I saw it on another RA's bulletin board. So yeah, I know I am certainly a rather clueless RA in that sexual grey area. (Just found out a friend was transgendered today.) And yeah, duh, sex programs always work better after several months at school. I think Pitt's RAs can kick UMD's RAs' asses any day. We're smarter, cooler, and altogether made of awesome. ^_^ School pride.
