We do this because whether you gave em the ol’ toot n’ boot or you’re really excited to see them again (hint: this is a small town you can bet your and all your roommates glass blown pipes & copies of Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History of the United States” that you’re going to see them again), dating in college can be specifically tricky.

Dear Body Party, It’s been a rough year– all I can seem to muster the energy to do is masturbate constantly because I hate myself and feeling lonely. I can’t seem to meet anyone in this god forsaken town to sooth my existential shit, I just want to meet new nice folks who are kind and cute and will hang out and make out with me. How do I fix this! How do I meet people queer people in this goddamn town? Thanks, Queer Cutie Seeking Kin Hey Queer Cutie Seeking Kin, Life gets rough sometimes/ life is rough all the time, but don’t fret– one day these days will all be bad memories. Let’s go in order. Chronic mastrabation can be a real problem. Mastrabation, like anything that feels good (or produces any kind of sensation), can be really adictive. Orgasm releases many happy hormones like oxytocin, which lowers your body’s levels of cortisol, a hormone produced by stress that can have negative impacts on your health and mood. Thus, or...

Dear Body Party, I got an irregular Pap Test, indicating that I most likely have human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV seems like a very big deal because it could lead to cervical cancer, but also like a very not big deal because I heard most people get it at some point in their lives—so what’s the deal? Should I freak out? Should I tell my partners? Should I tell everyone I ever had sex with? Should I call my mom? Hello, I think the only reason to freak out is that you’re going to have to spend a little more time with doctors then you were planning to, as many HPV infections are simply inconveniences rather than life altering concerns. You’re right that the majority of sexually active people will get HPV in their lifetime. And although HPV can cause anal, penile, and cervical cancer, among others, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that nine out of ten HPV infections will be cleared naturally by the body within three years ...

Dear Body Party, I love my partner and they love me back. Our relationship is new, but it is strong- they are really supportive of me, which isn’t something I’ve felt in past relationships. But when they’re not around, I can’t help but stalk their ex on Instagram. I can’t help but feel like I am in competition with their ex, and honestly, it feels like I’m losing- they just look so confident and so cute and so hot. And while my partner tells me they love me, it’s hard to imagine that they are as over their ex as they make out—especially considering the fact that I am not nearly as cool as the last person they dated. How can I stop comparing myself to them and feel more secure in my partner’s feelings? Please help, Tied for Second   Dear Tied for Second, “Getting over” someone is a misleading term. I think understanding that your partner may still think about their ex and remember them fondly is a good star...

Greetings. Welcome to Wasted Advice, wherein you ask for advice and I continue to get drunk and advise you. We both win. You can ask me the questions you can’t ask your resident advisor. how do i look hot on halloween without havin a real normie “slutty whatever” costume Have a non-normie “slutty” costume. The worst thing about the “sluttly waterer” costume is the lack of originality, so just add a layer of irony and you can show off your flesh-prison without seaming basic. For example, wear your BDSM gear and the European Union Flag and be the idea of austerity. what r u gonna be 4 halloween? Curious George — its perfect because I’ve always been very sexually attracted to the man in the yellow hat and I’m hoping that the universe provides me with a tall-hatted man of my own. What is the best new album out that you’re overplaying? I’ve been really into Princess Nokia’s new album, 1992. Its sick, its fresh, its everything I’ve been...

Dear Body Party, There are all of these red little bumps around my genitals and I am really really freaked out that I may have herpes? It’s all I can think about, my anxiety surrounding it is taking over my life. I know it’s really common, but I never thought it would be me. Thanks, One in Four Dear One in Four, Take a deep breathe- yes, you may have herpes. But you also may not have herpes. Red, irritated bumps around the genitals could be a sign of herpes, but they could also be ingrown hairs, which can be caused by shaving or the rubbing of clothes against your skin. Ingrown hairs, while uncomfortable, are not a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Instead, they are just irritated and inflamed hair follicles. Herpes sores, as opposed to ingrown hairs, are symptoms of viral shedding, and are characterized by uncomfortable red bumps or blisters that will bust after a day or two and ooz a some sort of milky liquid, becoming p...

By Sylvie Chace After a summer filled with retrograde after retrograde, this fall has finally mellowed out with both Mercury and Pluto stationing direct last week on the 21st and the 23rd. Mercury, the planet ruling communication and day-to-day expression, is at home now in Virgo. Mercury is also trining Pluto, planet of the underworld. This brings forth deeper insights within ourselves, and conversations we need to have to process the pain we’ve left behind in the summer heat. Venus, planet of relationships, has now transitioned to the intense and passionate sign of Scorpio while Mars, ruler of passionate energy and intense emotion is in the earth sign Capricorn. This combination is sexy, determined, and unstoppable. Scorpio favors personal magnetism, mystery, and desire, while Capricorn is ambitious and disciplined. As we transition from summer to fall, from retrograde to direct, this week brings forth intense emotional energy fo...
