From the Editor
Now that I have your attention, welcome Fanshawe and Western to Interrobang’s latest issue — the Sex Issue.
As you’re all aware, sexual health awareness has become a bit more complicated recently, as if it wasn’t enough to begin with. I remember the good old days when “wearing protection” meant preventing the horrors of STIs and unwanted pregnancy. Ah, the simpler times. These days it’s all we can do to not sneeze near each other without having an outright panic attack.
But still, we are all of us human, with human needs and desires, so there’s no point in pretending sex isn’t on our minds. In this issue, our writers explore what safe sex looks like in 2020, along with how the pandemic has affected the way we go about romantic relationships in general.
From masturbation as an act of self-love to why students are using dating apps more than ever, we’re going to keep this necessary conversation going as best we can. The world around us may be changing, but the facts of life will always remain the same.
Our next issue comes out on Oct. 30. Until then, keep tabs with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, as well as our websites westerngazette.ca and theinterrobang.ca. Don’t forget to check out theinterrobang.ca/podcast for new podcast episodes, too.
And so it goes,
