Cliterate

Cliterate

Created by Savanah McDaniel (Editor), Jamie Baum (Journalist), Meredith Bower (Journalist) and Gabbie Pucciarelli (Graphic Designer) during Block 6 2016

“Through publishing accurate sexual health education in a positive and critical manner, Cliterate strives to dismantle some of the social and cultural barriers that hinder women’s access to this education. We hope for women to be comfortable with their bodies, to understand the biases against them, and to make educated decisions on their health. It is about time that we, as a society, look at women’s sexual education through a critical lens, incorporating the theories of old and new. So, reader, brace yourself, and get ready to get (c)literate!”

XY Magazine

XY

Created by Casey Schuller (Editor), Christie Ma (Journalist), Sydney Rogalla (Journalist), and Erica Willard (Graphic Designer) during Block 6 2016

“Here at XY, we feel that sex education for men has been unacceptably overlooked. Abstinence-only education is just not adequate, especially since ‘increasing emphasis on abstinence education is positively correlated with teenage pregnancy and birth rates.” Good sex education should encourage all people to feel comfortable with their bodies and give them proper information to have safe, healthy, and pleasurable sexual encounters when they are ready […] We promise to fight heteronormative stereotypes and provide trustworthy information for men of all sexualities. We acknowledge many different gender and sexual identities and though we wish we could cater to a wider audience, we are a small organization.”

Eve’s Apple is targeting adolescent girls, providing them information on issues ranging from sexuality, body image, and identity. We wish to encourage information as a visible avenue from which young girls can seek answers. Every single page has been written with a feminist perspective in mind so that readers may see how feminism is not meant for the classroom only, but can be applied to our personal lives. This magazine’s aim is to support the well-being of young girls mentally and physically.”

Created by Colorado College students Angela Kong (Editor), Kevin Lowe (Editorial Assistant), Samantha Buxbaum (Journalist), Joseph LoyaconoBustos (Journalist), Lauren Dinsmore (Graphic Designer) during Block 6 2014

“Our goal at The Quarterly Quickie is to educate people about sex positivity and to illustrate how it is important to view sex with an open and nonjudgmental mindset. Often, society attempts to understand the world in simplistic binaries such as ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ Fortunately, life cannot be categorized like this. In contrast, life is extremely multifaceted and nuanced and we can discover these gray areas of life when we keep an open mind. We hope this magazine helps give its readers insight into the complicated subject matters of sexual discourse, sex education, and sex in the military, and introduce a nuanced approach to understanding sex today.”
