Campus Confidential: Slumber Parties, Tila Tequila, and College Lesbians

Remember Tila Tequila? As MTV’s A Shot at Love serves up a second round, I’m reflecting on season one, when I first fell for Tila. A bisexual bachelorette sitting pretty on the fence? So my thing. And you know what? I believed in Tila Tequila. Right up until the finale, when she gushed to the winner, “In the end, I chose a man…I can be your wifey!” Wait…wifey?! We’re supposed to be progressing here. Bicurious experimentation is practically a right of passage for college women – and that’s ballin’ for sexual liberation. In fact, according to a study by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, same-sex sexual encounters between women have nearly tripled in the last decade. What’s the full scoop? Campus Confidential takes you undercover(s)!

Campus Confidential: Down And Dirty Dorm Room Hook-Ups

When we get to college, we can get a little carried away. We just got out of our long-ass high school relationships (or else had been anticipating the fabled college slut-fest for basically ever). Regardless, by the time we’ve unpacked Mr. Snuggle Bug, we’ve already made a list of totally doable prospects. We’re like kids in an eye-candy store!

So how does all of this hooking up actually go down? I circulated a nosy little survey to find out exactly where, what, and then what…here are my frisky findings: Keep reading »

Campus Confidential: College Lesbians

Tila Tequila came out of the closet wearing a sexy black bathing suit bound to leave a silly tan line. Standing before her contestants, she finally confessed, “I’ve never, ever told anyone this before… but I want to let you all know that… I’m a bisexual!” From the first episode, it was painful to watch Tila sitting pretty on the fence, reinforcing stereotypes about bisexual women as promiscuous and indecisive: “Do I really like a guy, or do I really like a girl?” How about who do you really like? Isn’t that more the issue? But I fell for her anyway – only to have the finale churn my stomach and break my heart: “In the end, I chose a man… I can be your wifey!” Thanks to MTV, Tila Tequila is now the face of bisexuality for the college generation.

Yikes.

Campus Curfew: Rushing to Conclusions

It all started when I heard that GDX (Gamma Delta Chi) – the football frat at Dartmouth – is actually coed. In fact, informal history holds that GDX was once a very different house: a nerdy coed with cute pets and an attitude of inclusion. It wasn’t always so testosterous.

Beta (Beta Theta Pi) had been the football frat since 1858 – until the mid-nineties, when they were derecognized by the College for offenses of hazing, racism and sexism. To prove that the Dartmouth football team ain’t nobody’s bitch, they charged at Gamma Delta in a block rush. Thus the original membership was overturned and GDX became Beta in disguise. But what about the policies implemented by the house prior to the takeover? Wouldn’t they continue to apply? Keep reading »
