Sex Talk

The Collegian’s Annabella Simma answer pressing questions about intimacy

We asked students to submit some of their burning spicy questions in order to gain full transparency on the real wonders students have about sex or relationships in general. The expectation of this column is to shed some light on the topic of sex and relationships and answer questions everyone is wondering but may not feel comfortable asking.

What’s something non-sexual that turns you on?
Everyone is so different when it comes to non-sexual turn-ons. There are so many turn-ons for people, both sexual and non-sexual. Some people have multiple, some people only have a couple or they could have none at all. Personally, cooking with my partner and deep eye contact has to be my top non-sexual turn-ons. There is just something so spicy about a partner that can cook for me and especially with me. Deep and prolonged eye contact scientifically deepens connection, but there is something very intimate and romantic about staring into the depths of someone’s soul that just really gets me going.

How do I tell my partner I got an STD from someone else?
The only way to do this is to be straight up and honest. When it comes to sex, transparency and communication are important. You never want to put your partner, or anyone for that matter, at risk. It will be very uncomfortable to admit and that conversation won’t be easy, but trust me, honest communication, especially in this case, is the very best policy.

Why do they say you should pee after sex?
When you have sex, bacteria can easily end up in places you definitely do not want it to be. It is so important to urinate and clear out bacteria from a place like your urinary tract. It is important to do this each time after sex so you can prevent a urinary tract infection or, in other words, a urinary tract infection (UTI).

How many bodies is too much before I need to get STD tested?
No shame in your game, but I definitely recommend getting tested after each and every new sexual partner. Not only do you want to avoid getting an STD, you definitely don’t want to be the one to spread an STD. It helps keep you healthy and keeps your sexual partners healthy, which is always a good thing.

When is a good time to stop being a sneaky link?
This depends on the situation. If you’re OK with being a sneaky link and that is all you want it to be, then by all means, there is no reason to stop. If you’re looking for, or even worse, hoping for more, nip it in the bud. You deserve to be more than someone’s late-night booty call. Especially if you’re a hopeless romantic. Take it from me, you can do better. There is no shame in wanting commitment from somebody, especially someone you’re sexually involved with. So respectfully, if you want commitment, leave now.
