Sophomore's interest in charity event proves 'like' worthy

UW-Madison sophomore Dean Strutterman was pleasantly surprised Friday night upon discovering three Facebook friends had “liked” that he expressed interest in attending an event.  Strutterman, who described his initial interest as “tentative at best,” still found comfort in his friends’ positive endorsement through social media.  “I was super stoked when I clicked my notifications and saw three people liked that I was thinking about going,” he said.  The charity concert, Melting Faces for Teen Pregnancy, was held Wednesday night at a local coffee shop four blocks from Strutterman’s apartment, and featured local bands ranging in genre from “straight-up metal” to “jazzy power-slop.”  Attendees were asked to donate “as much or little as they can to support education and outreach efforts addressing teen pregnancy in Wisconsin,” according to the event description.  Regrettably, Strutterman was not able to attend the event, though he was pleased with himself for thinking about going.

Twelve-year-old asks Santa for puberty

Local 12-year-old Eli Gardner asked a mall Santa Claus if he could receive puberty for Christmas this year. The pre-teen repeatedly communicated that his only request for a gift this holiday season was for his body to begin sexual maturation and rapid growth. “I don’t have a single hair on my junk,” Gardner told fascinated Cardinal reporters.

College-friendly contraception: choosing what works for you

Hopefully Thanksgiving break left us feeling thankful for at least a couple of things. A loving family, good friends and no unwanted pregnancies topped my list this year. Considering the fact that according to the Guttmacher Institute 51 percent of U.S. pregnancies are unplanned, it’s no joke to be thankful for being baby-free. While there are tons of methods out there to prevent pregnancy, there are some that are more suited to collegiate life than others.

How to carve out some sexy time while giving thanks

While being home for the holidays might temporarily relieve some academic pressure, it can cause a buildup of sexual tension. Something about high caloric foods and having a little free time lowers inhibitions and brings back those urges that midterms suppressed for too long.

Between the Sheets: Aziz Ansari’s advice on how to charm the pants off a holiday hottie

We are fast approaching that warm and fuzzy time of year that brings with it the urge to curl up with a big ol’ bowl of Chex Mix and a love bug. Something about sweaters and commercial holidays leads people to want to pair off and find some mistletoe to snog under, but with the smorgasbord of sweet thangs our campus has to offer, deciding who to hit up can be intimidating.
