Safe Sex in Drag
March 27, 2007 8:33 AM
Tess Tosterone, Mr. Rex McSex, Alexis Extravaganza and Ms. Mask, lip synced the small crowd of mostly freshmen into laughing oblivion in the Cantina at Mary Ward Monday night.
The Resident Assistants by day dressed up in women’s show costumes and performed entertaining musical numbers, making light of the topic that could be quite uncomfortable, sex.
The annual Sexhibition “is a sexual education program veiled in a drag show,” Kaija Tircuit-Peitso, 19-year-old RA in Mary Parker Hall, said. “The motto is sex drag and rock and roll.”
Dorm residents cheered as their dragged-out RA’s shimmied their sock breasts, batted their glittery eyes, danced like nobody was watching, and made honorable fools of themselves on stage. In between Tess Tosterone’s flawless performance of Barbara Streisand’s, "Don’t Rain on My Parade", and Alexis Extravaganza’s sensational take on "You’re Gonna Love Me", from the hit movie "Dreamgirls", two EROS representatives took the stage to educate the crowd a little.
The Educational Referral Organization on Sexuality reps offered snippets of information about sex, myths, and truths to their audience.
The reps offered a laid back open-forum, where students could feel comfortable to speak freely about personal sexual experiences. “Don’t ever get your clit pierced, it will desensitize it,” EROS representative Erica Model said.
The reps confirmed that the myth that sperm die in water is untrue, and that if one should choose to have sex in water, he should use water-based lube as an aid. EROS also provides information on venues in the city where “you can get your kink on,” according to Nicole Isakson, EROS representative.
EROS, located in M109 in the Caesar Chavez student center, “provides prophylactics of all kinds,” Isakson said. From free condoms, to finger cots and rentable porn, sexual resources are available daily, no questions asked and no I.D. needed.
EROS also provides confidential peer counseling to talk about sexual problems, and to answer any questions one might have about issues with sexuality, according to Isakson.
EROS encourages students to get Family Pact, a program offered in the health center on campus.
“Family Pact provides free condoms and free STD testing,” according to the EROS reps.
Alexis Extravaganza brought the show home in her sparkled navy thong bikini and white patent-leather platform boots. She riled up the crowd with her sexy performance of Britney Spears’s "Toxic", earning her a standing ovation and a room full of sexually educated students.
