Love/Sex Issue Online!

Our latest efforts have led us to the Love/Sex issue, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Love is in the air and also in the pages of our magazine.


  • Stories of lost virginity and dignity
  • Evan P. Thomas speaks to the UO administration about the Pacifica Forum
  • Dick Origami (Don’t ask just check it out)
  • One hell of a flow chart.
  1. Bystander says:

    Cool issue. By the way, if your corrections space was “article” intentionally mispelled?
    This was also a timely issue, since, despite the furor, it seems to me that the vast majority of U of O students still spend more time thinking about sex than they do the Pacifica forum.

  2. GoesWithoutSaying says:

    “Are you serious? A condom is a contraceptive.”

    A condom is a contraceptive (anti-pregnancy) and a prophylactive (anti-disease) device.

  3. What? says:

    “Contraceptives are for preventing pregnancy. They do not prevent the transmission of STDs.”

    Are you serious? A condom is a contraceptive. A condom can greatly reduce the risk of STDs. Granted, it doesn’t prevent the transmission of STDs 100%, but it still prevents for the most part. You are thinking contraceptives are only in pill form, which is a false assumption.

  4. CJ says:

    Pregnancy is the ultimate STD.

  5. GoesWithoutSaying says:

    “The ugliest side of sex is STDs. While
    the Oregon Commentator does not want to
    lecture you like a high school guidance counselor,
    we do want to encourage all our readers
    to use contraceptives.”

    Maybe Drew should have listened better to that guidance counselor: contraceptives are for preventing pregnancy. They do not prevent the transmission of STDs.

    also.. wtf how did my e-mail address get auto-filled into the URI? Stupid Safari.

  7. Alex L says:

    Loved it!
    I wonder if there were any stories from people I know in this years’ issue? I know the person who had the “eventful night in Brazil” from the last VDay.

    Also, for more on “How to shame your friends”,
