Few would argue against the old adage that “sex sells,” but some may question why we’ve chosen to make this, the July issue of The Other Press, our first Sexy Sexy Sex issue in our discernable history—after all, The OP is free.
Sex is ubiquitous, consistently newsworthy, and (in my opinion) at the forefront of the minds of 99 per cent of our readers. What better time than the sweaty, sun-drenched throes of July to pique the sexual curiosity of our pages? Without getting pornographic, each section of this month’s issue will feature some full-frontal coverage of some sex-tacular subject matter: like Natalie Serafini’s exploration of the social fallacy of virginity, Angela Espinoza’s review of the Museum of Vancouver’s Sex Talk in the City exhibit, Sophie Isbister’s look at sex positivity on campus, Elliot Chan’s romantic saga of Quizno’s-themed erotic fiction, and Jacey Gibb’s scintillating feature on modern-day male circumcision.
My hope is that, along with our regular college and community coverage, this issue titillates your heart and mind for your reading pleasure.
