Auntie J back with a bang for your Week Ten dose of love. And, with finals just around the corner, this week’s question keeps it short and sweet;
How do you make meaningful relationships (whether platonic or romantic) while at Princeton?
I have recently noticed a lot of advertisements on TV for feminine hygiene washes, and am seeing them more in drug stores and even in the U-Store. Do I have to use one of these washes, and are they even safe to use?

“The Incorruptible Body,” a senior thesis exhibition by Angélica María Vielma ’18, is currently on view in the Hurley Gallery at the new Lewis Center for the Arts through Saturday, April 14. The exhibition centers on photographic processes and representations of the self within a framework of Catholic iconography, as well as of Vielma’s own identity as the daughter of practicing clowns.
I’ve always heard rumors that eating pineapple would make my vagina taste better, but is that actually true? Are there other foods that do the same?
As someone with an unhealthy relationship with my own body, I go out of my way to avoid body positivity conversations. Just the thought of being recognized as someone who isn’t skinny is very stressful to me. And over the years, I’ve grown to hate and be very harsh on myself. So yeah, body positivity talks don’t inspire or empower me or cause me to suddenly love myself. And I didn’t feel inspired by this one either. However, this talk had a deep impact on me. Hearing Jessamyn Stanley — who, by the way, is a boss — talk about her experience as a fat woman practicing yoga was a huge wake-up call to me.
One year ago, visiting this campus — a place now so intimately familiar to me — was an excursion into a world of dreams. Truly. Princeton had been, for so long, The Dream, and arriving at Preview felt more incredible than becoming a princess, slaying a dragon, or learning to fly. It was the stuff of fairy tales.
Presenting: a real-life, entirely crowdsourced University to-do list, in all its strangeness, sadness, and glory.
Journalism is no stranger to April Fools’ Day and its traditions. Indeed, April 1 invokes a long tradition of journalists’ publishing hoax stories to trick readers and listeners. By the early 20th century, the phenomenon had already firmly entrenched itself into the American reporting tradition.
This week marks the fifth week of thesis shows in the visual arts program, with senior Paulina King’s exhibition “Somatoscapes,” currently on view in Hurley Gallery. Primarily a sculptor and photographer, King has worked with tri-color film portraits and process-oriented sculptural series that combine industrial materials with a spatial sensibility informed by the natural world.
Do you think that the emotional intimacy that you have with a friend versus a romantic partner is substantively different?
– Friends or More?
The hats aren’t just a fashionable indulgence — they are steeped in traditions of empowerment, both personal and cultural. Wearing hats, accumulating hats, taking hats off — these gestures unite, divide, and propel lives, and even civil rights movements.
Dear Auntie J,
In [Community Action] this fall, I met a student “Mark” and hung out with him a lot in the first few weeks of the semester. As I got to know him better I felt that we didn’t really click as friends and that I don't enjoy his company; for example, our senses of humor don’t mesh and he is very political while I am not. Although our CA group met for lunch often early on we have since grown distant and I have not seen any of them since fall break. I would prefer to treat Mark with this same distance, but he texts me about once a week to ask straight out if I want to get a meal or hang out. Looking through my texts it’s been about fifteen times since November. I have declined with an excuse and offered no attempts to find a better time or follow-up every single time and have switched to just replying “no thanks” though I’m aware it’s a little bit rude. He has done nothing wrong so I don’t want to be mean to him, but he also has not gotten the hint. My friends and parents say to continue deflecting until he gives up, but the idea of this going on indefinitely stresses me out. What should I do?

For me, this spring break somehow manifested itself as an unexpected exploration of the concept of the “strong female character” through the centuries.
In a somewhat unusual fashion, Dick Bush took a break from the computer and headed to the basketball court for his ORFE senior thesis, setting out to quantify what NBA announcers refer to as a player’s “Clutch Performance”.
The Sexpert gives advice about trying out BDSM but maintaining agency and empowerment in the relationship.
“Dear Auntie J,
I joined an extracurricular group in my freshmen fall because of interest, and by now I have a leadership position in the group but have found the work increasingly tedious. Shall I stay or quit?”
I’ve heard that although alcohol decreases sexual inhibitions, the physiological effects of alcohol may negatively impact sex. What are the effects of alcohol on the body that could affect my sexual experiences?
“Great virtuosity, great heart.” Those words radiated out into Richardson Auditorium when Michael Pratt introduced the concert soloists for the Princeton University Orchestra spring concert and spoke of their accomplishments.
There are days when you might wake up in the morning, look outside and see sleet pouring down your window, groan and get out of bed, then experience a heck of a walk to class, and possibly receive really bad news (or a bad test score). Or maybe you’ll wake up and see a beautiful sunny sky and spend the day tossing a frisbee with your friends on Poe field. Or did you ever experience a bad day that’s turned into a good one? A life changing experience or just a silly thought that made you laugh for hours? Maybe you lost someone important, or gained new friendships. This past year has been a lot to take in– the good and the bad, the ups and the downs. We’ve all been there in our own way:
