First-year reflections

My first memories of Princeton are the awe and pride I felt when I first gazed up at the Hogwarts-style turrets flanking Blair Arch; the muggy, swamp-like air of the final days of summer that made walking feel like wading through a swamp; the utter fear and excitement of entering the Rocky dining hall with a plate of D-hall food for the first time, alone.

On aesthetics and açaí bowls

Appreciating beauty, from a bowl of blended fruit to the Big Dipper on a walk back to my dorm at night, has allowed me to escape from the constant pressures of a success-oriented culture.

Sexpert: Testicularly Concerned

Dear Sexpert, Like most college students, I spend most of my day on my laptop, working on assignments or watching Netflix in bed.

Sexpert: Does Size Matter?

Dear Sexpert, I’ve only recently started watching porn online, and I’ve seen countless advertisements about “guaranteed” ways to make my penis bigger. Also, the guys in the videos are usually longer than I am. I never really questioned my size before watching porn, and I’m starting to feel as if I won’t be able to please my partner if I don’t do something about my penis size. So I’m wondering: does size really matter?

What is Plan B?

Dear Sexpert, My friend told me that she went to McCosh Health Center this morning to get Plan B after having unprotected sex with her boyfriend. I am curious to find out more about how Plan B works. Is it the same as an abortion? — Plan A Preferred
