ONE ON ONE WITH THE PEOPLE AND BUILDINGSTHAT MAKE UBC
Sanderson has been announcing for UBC volleyball for the past three seasons.
=HOTO AU^EN ERHARCfT/THE UBYSSEY
Sean Sanderson is T-Bird volleyball's man behind the mic
Serena Chao
Contributor
Though the biggest draw of
athletics events is almost always
the competing athletes, no game
is quite the same without an
engaging announcer. For UBC
volleyball, Sean Sanderson is the
man who keeps tabs on every
match and entertains the crowd
with jokes and hilarious commentary.
Sanderson has always been
into sports, whether it be volleyball or hockey, and sports
broadcasting was a natural complement to his athleticism.
If I could, my dream
would be doing play-
by-plays for hockey...
in the wintertime and
then doing summers
at the beach for
volleyball."
Sean Sanderson
UBC Volleyball annoucer
He studied broadcasting at
the British Columbia Institute
of Technology three years ago,
and has continued announcing
ever since.
Apart from UBC volleyball
games and a short stint with
UBC soccer last year, he is also
actively involved with beach
volleyball tournaments around
the region. Sanderson's first
broadcasting experience was,
fittingly, at a beach volleyball
tournament in Kelowna, B.C.
when his coach, Doug Reimer
— who is also the current head
coach of women's volleyball —
handed him the microphone and
gave him the chance that started
it all.
"If I could, my dream would be
doing play-by-plays for hockey in
the wintertime and then do summers at the beach for volleyball.
Any sort of work around sports is
something I'd really like to do,"
Sanderson said.
Volleyball needs one
more fan. Football
doesn't, but volleyball
does. It's not the most
popular sport in the
world but if my jokes
and enthusiasm bring
them in, then that's
a good thing for
volleyball."
Many people say that having
a referral is the best way to land
a job. In Sanderson's case, this
held true. A friend of his saw
an urgent posting by the head
of Athletics and after a week of
emailing back and forth, his time
at UBC began. Throughout his
time here, he has become friends
with the team members and
coaches as he also participates in
the teams' practices.
Usually, men's and women's
volleyball games are scheduled
in a doubleheader format. Before
each roughly two-hour game,
Sanderson runs through the
roster for both teams making
sure that his pronunciation ofthe
names are correct with emphasis
on the visiting team. He makes a
mental note ofthe nicknames or
requests that individual players
may have. There's always the typical script that must be followed,
but after opening remarks, his
character and charisma shine
through. Sanderson shares the
happiness ofthe team's victories
and as a volleyball coach himself, he is knowledgeable ofthe
members' statistics and enjoys
the sport as a whole.
CIS (Canadian Interuniversity
Sport) Volleyball — the league
in which UBC competes — is
the highest tier of volleyball in
Canada.
"Volleyball needs one more fan.
Football doesn't, but volleyball
does," said Sanderson. "It's not the
most popular sport in the world
but if my jokes and enthusiasm
bring them in, then that's a good
thing for volleyball."
Both volleyball teams have now
finished their regular seasons and
will be moving on to the Canada
West Quarter-Finals in hopes of
continuing their CIS Champion
streak. But if you stop by one of
their games in the fall, you will
be guaranteed an exciting and
entertaining game from both the
players and the announcer. Xi

LLUSTRATION JULIAN YU/THE UBYSSEY
A student group is collecting signatures to get a referendum guestion on the AMS elections ballot in March.
Students launch referendum campaign on Israel divestment
Veronika Bondarenko
News Editor
This year's AMS elections may see
students voting on whether the
society should divest from companies that support Israel's actions
in Palestine.
UBC's branch of Solidarity for
Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR)
is currently circulating a petition for
a referendum question on whether
the AMS should boycott and divest
from companies that support Israel's
occupation of Gaza as part ofthe
global BDS movement.
BDS, which stands for boycott,
divestment, sanctions, calls for an
end to Israeli occupation in West
Bank and Gaza and support for
the rights of Palestinian refugees
and Palestinians currently living
in Israel.
Similar policies at the student
union level have recently been
passed at York University, Ryerson
University and various branches of
the University of California, among
others. The referendum would call
on the AMS to divest from companies such as Motorola and Sabra, who
had previously been accused of providing support to the Israeli army.
Accordingto geography student
and SPHR member Hussain Khan,
the mission ofthe petition and the
referendum is to take a stand against
Israel's treatment of Palestinians. If
the referendum passes, the SPHR
will continue the process of compiling a list of specific companies that
they'd like the AMS to divest from.
Khan also said that while this
year's campaign has been fuelled
partly by the renewed military
operations that took place in the
Gaza strip over the summer and
saw over 1,400 Palestinian civilians
killed, the SPHR's primary goal has
been to show solidarity with the Palestinian students on campus and put
pressure on Israel through the voice
ofthe students.
"The community needs to stand
together and say that 'yes, this is
wrong and you need to be held accountable for that,'" said Khan.
In order to have the question
make it onto this year's referendum,
the petition needs to reach 1,000
signatures from students who are
currently enrolled at UBC. If the
petition is successful, students will
then vote on whether or not to support the referendum question in the
March elections.
The referendum would also need
to meet quorum, which requires
eight per cent of all eligible students
to vote.
Ciara-Maelle Thibault from
SPHR said that they are close to
reaching the required number
of signatures and will continue
campaigning during the elections period to encourage more
students to vote in support ofthe
referendum question.
"I think students have every right
to have their student government
represent those interests and work
towards not supporting certain
companies that are involved in the
occupation," said Thibault.
Eviatar Bach from the UBC
Social Justice Centre (SJC) also said
that their club members voted to
endorse the petition.
In 2010, SPHR provided a $700
donation to SJC in order to help
fund a humanitarian aid flotilla
to Gaza after $13,000 in legal fees
were spent to figure out whether the
AMS could allow the transfer.
"SPHR and SJC had a good relationship for many years," said Bach.
"The question of Israel-Palestine
is very much relevant, obviously
because of social justice, but also
because Canada is so complicit, so
it's very much a thing that is very
immediate and that we can do
something about."
However, fourth-year political
science student Sam Heller, who is
also a member ofthe Jewish Students Association, said that while he
desires peace for both Palestinians
and Israelis in the Middle East, he
fears that widespread support for
the BDS movement will spark a
wave of anti-Semitism on university
campuses and UBC in particular.
"For most students, this may be
just a petition that they're asked to
sign," said Heller in an email interview. "For me and the other Jewish
and Israeli students on campus, this
is something which will have hurtful consequences for years to come,
deeming us outsiders and not full
members ofthe UBC family."
The elections are set to take place
from March 9 to 13. a

Rude sales staff boost in-the-moment sales at high-end stores: Sauder research
Joshua Azizi
Senior StaffWriter
Can rude service actually increase
sales of high-end luxury brands?
That's what research from the
Sauder School of Business is suggesting. A new study called 'Should
the Devil Sell Prada?' has shown
that customers who get the cold
shoulder at high-end luxury fashion
stores can actually become more
willing to purchase their products.
In the study, participants had
interactions with sales staff at
both casual clothing stores such
as American Eagle and at high-
end luxury stores such as Gucci or
Burberry. When the staff of a luxury
brand would react condescendingly
towards a customer who looked at
the brand's products, this rejection
tended to increase the customer's
desire to buy it.
"If you're someone who wants
to own that luxury thing but you're
not quite there, that's when negative
service can actually make you want
it more," said marketing professor
Darren Dahl, who spearheaded the
study. "The negative service is basically saying 'you want to be in this
club, but you're not good enough,'
and that just makes you want it even
more."
The study also found similar
results with other mediums such
as eco-friendly products: when
customers perceived themselves as
wanna-bes in owning eco-friendly
products, rude service made them
want to own the eco-friendly products even more.
"You'll be willing to do things
to get into these groups, and one
of them is puttingup with people
being rude to you" says Dahl. "It's
kind of like the movie Mean Girls."
A rude attitude was found to be
effective if the customer aspired to
own the luxury brand but did not
own it.
It was found to be ineffective
if the customer already owned
the luxury brand, if the customer did not care about the luxury
brand or if the brand was a casual
mass-market brand.
However, the desire to purchase
the luxury product after rejection
does not last very long. When asked
how they felt about the luxury
products two weeks after the interaction, the customers in the study
were generally uninterested in the
product.
"Only in the moment is that
powerful," said Dahl. "In the moment you react to it. 'You say I'm not
good enough? I'll show you I'm good
enough!' And two weeks later you're
thinking 'You know what? Those
guys are real assholes, I'm not gonna
show up in there anymore.'"
From these results, Dahl suggests
that although snobbiness can provoke a customer into making a quick
sale, it will not increase overall sales
if the staff is constantly condescending towards customers.
"If your sales person wants to
make a quick commission, this is
a good thing to do, but it doesn't
help your store or brand in the long
term," said Dahl." Xi
Faculty members
vote in favour of
divestment from
fossil fuels
=ILE PHOTO CHERIHAN HASSUNfTHE UBYSSEY
955 faculty members voted to divest.
Veronika Bondarenko
News Editor
UBC faculty have voted in support of calling on the university
to divest from fossil fuels in the
next five years.
The online referendum, which
took place from January 26 to
February 8, asked UBC faculty
to vote on whether to support
UBCC350's Divest Campaign
and encourage the university to
divest from fossil fuels. A total
of 955 faculty members voted in
the referendum.
On Tuesday, the results ofthe
referendum were announced:
61.88 per cent of faculty members
who voted support divestment.
David Tindall, a environmental sociology professor at UBC,
said that this vote will call on the
UBC Board of Governors to make
a decision regarding divestment
in the next five years, as they had
previously indicated they would.
"One ofthe [deciding factors]
was if the two core bodies ofthe
university, such as students and
faculty, were in support of such
a move, but now it's up to them
to make a decision one way or
another," said Tindall. "Their
hands are not tied, but this is a
very strong symbolic message."
Tindall also said that, along
with the student referendum in
support of divestment that took
place in the spring of 2014, the
faculty vote will play an important role in UBC's next steps in
the upcoming months.
"I think it's a critical step for
getting the university to divest and I think the university
divesting is an important action
in a variety of different ways, in
terms of helping society make
some changes, in terms of moving away from fossil fuels," said
Tindall. Xi
" The most certain way
to succeed is always to try
just one more time."

VDAY produces two feminist theatre performances Alumnus wins $50,000 for ad
\
The Vagina Monologues is a popular feminist monologue.
Koby Michaels
StaffWriter
=HOTO NICW FERNANDES/ FLICKR
Multiple orgasms on stage, five
straight minutes of moaning and
about a hundred names for a vagina;
curious yet? UBC VDAY's production of The Vagina Monologues and
A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant Et A
Prayer have all this and more.
The Vagina Monologues, originally written and performed by Eve En-
sler in 1996, has evolved into a much
larger project in recent years. The
play, and Ensler, helped launched
the VDAY movement.
A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant
Et A Prayer has also played a large
role in the VDAY movement. Today
VDAY is a global activist movement
aimed at promoting awareness
for, and finding an end to, violence
against women through creative
events. Traditionally, VDAY is run
through university and community
performances that raise money for
local relief groups. This year, UBC
VDAY is sponsoring the Sexual
Assault Support Centre at UBC,
Women Against Violence Against
Women and the Downtown Eastside
Women's Centre.
The two plays pack a lot
more than bedroom humour;
they tackle complex and difficult issues from the gender
spectrum to rape and female
genital mutilation.
"The whole purpose is to raise
awareness about violence against
women and theatre is a platform
to use to raise awareness about
these issues. It also adds entertainment value and people will
come out for a show," said recent
UBC graduate and Vagina Monologues director, Giselle Miller.
UBC VDAY is alternating shows
for the rest ofthe week before their
double bill on Saturday.
Both plays are a series of
monologues from women and
others, focusing on sexual violence,
violence against women, LGBTQ
and feminist issues. Monologues
take a light-hearted approach and
utilize humour to talk about these
difficult issues. The occasional serious monologues are abrupt, hard
hitting and emotional. A Memory,
A Monologue, A Rant Et A Prayer
is heavier and has a wider variety
of characters, including men and
gender nonconforming persons.
While the issues covered are
very specific, the play is for everyone, said UBC VDAY co-director
and treasurer Noni Nabors. "Anyone can benefit from these shows.
It's beneficial to have everyone."
"This [violence against women]
is a really important issue. Though
violence against women seems
to be specific to women only, it is
very much a global issue and it's
an issue that effects everyone. We
encourage men to come out and
be included in the conversation,"
said Miller.
The plays draw in a diverse
crowd through their use of humour.
Everyone was in stitches over the
classifications of moans and the
monologue about all the names for
vaginas, which range from coochie
scorcher to toadie, with dozens that
are certainly not allowed in print.
Feminism, and the ideas carried
with it, are often relegated to
academics and political debates
— the VDAY performances strip
all that away, allowing members
ofthe audience to learn about
the issues at hand in a fun and
inclusive environment.
Check out The Vagina Monologues and A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant & A Prayer for a fun
and informative conversation about
gendered issues. Xi

While not the winning entry, "When Pigs Fly" aired during the Super Bowl on February 1.
Adam Waitzer
Contributor
Brendan Taylor's commercial took
second place in the Doritos Crash
the Super Bowl ad competition and
was broadcasted during the big
game on February 1.
Taylor's entry, "When Pigs Fly,"
was directed by two brothers from
Maple Ridge and bested some
4,900 other submissions to win
$50,000 and Super Bowl airtime.
The team was unaware of
their victory until the moment it
aired, they keenly awaited each
commercial break.
"We were all on edge in the
fourth quarter, as every time the
screen would fade to black we
would anticipate seeing our ad
play next. And then it finally came
on... and the place exploded with
cheers. Such an outpour of love
and excitement," said Taylor.
While the first place submission
was American, the team's accomplishment stands as a triumph of
homegrown, B.C. talent.
"It was so surreal, to see it actually on our screen, shared with
an estimated 114 million people,"
said Taylor.
Although Taylor only recently
began to pursue an acting career,
this achievement lends him valuable visibility. "I definitely feel
some momentum with the win for
my career and looking forward to a
busy year," said Taylor. Xi

Rare books and special collections acquired a medieval papal document
-   i
►■» ~**\ ,
The papal bull document has been restored and is now available for students in rare books and special collections.
Olivia Law
Senior StaffWriter
=HOTO COURTESY DON ERHARDT
The UBC Rare Books library and
committee of professors from the
English and history departments
have just finished restoring
their most recent acquisition.
The papal bull document, a legal
decree issued in Latin by Pope
Innocent IV to the Italian convent of San Michele in Trento,
includes the signatures ofthe
Pope and 13 other cardinals, all
restored to a recognizable print.
UBC early European history
professor Richard Pollard was
instrumental in the collection and
purchase ofthe $15,000 document
in the spring of 2014.
"It's a perfect example of a standard medieval document," said
Pollard on the papal bull. "There's
a sense that students think that
all this history was handed down
through the heavens, and we don't
really have any understanding of
where the story was learned."
The main reason for purchase of
this document, which dates back
to 1245, is to use it as a teaching
tool.
"The idea behind getting the
document was so students could
look and understand something
about the sources of medieval
history," said Pollard, who brings
his 300-level classes to the Rare
Books Collection for a number of
classes each semester.
The importance of having the
actual copy ofthe document,
rather than simply a digitized
version is eminent, Katherine
Kalsbeek, acting head of Rare
Books and Special Collections
remarked upon the collection of
such a rare document. "There's
something so impactful about
seeing the Pope's mark from
that time and the cardinals who
signed it; it's quite amazing to
see."
The document, when compared to other similar bulls from
a similar period highlights the
standardization ofthe processes involved in their inception.
"People have a tendency to
believe, particularly about the
Middle Ages, that people were
stupid, but the document is so
carefully put together, both from
a technical point of view, but also
from an organizational point of
view, a linguistic point of view,"
said Pollard.
Each sentence in the document ends with a rhythmic pulse,
making the flow of each line feel
uniform and sophisticated. The
levels of literacy, the evidence
of business transactions and the
ability we have to touch, smell
and look closely at the document underlines the importance
of having the document here
on campus.
When examining the papal
bull closely, one can see where
corrections have been made on
the pages by the way the light
shines on the ink, one can read
the actual words printed on the
parchment, and one can even
smell the manuscripts, giving
hints as to what animal the
document came from, which
gives indications to geographical
details of its conception.
Although the document has
been digitized and is available
online, both Pollard and Kalsbeek are in agreement on the
impact ofthe physical manuscript. "I want students to know
that this is their resource," said
Kalsbeek, encouraging students
to view the document, whether
involved in a medieval studies,
English, history or not.
"Going to see it actually makes
it relevant," said Pollard. "I think
that students really respond well
to having an actual piece ofthe
past in a way that has a greater
psychological impact than the
ephemeral nature of digital objects." tJ THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2015    |    SEX

Finding the best mobile dating app for students
OKCupid
Tammy Hsieh
Contributor
3.5/5
OkCupid gives users
a clearer idea of who
their match is, and
breaks down the intimidation of
talking to a stranger. There are also
details one can edit and questions
to answer. With those questions,
OkCupid matches one's answers
and the importance ofthe answers
to others and show the percentage
of "Friend" or "Enemy." In the
profile, a user explicitly shows what
they are looking for: new friends,
long-term dating, short-term dating
or casual sex. The app of OkCupid is pretty easy to use, but the
website provides more functions
like searching a user and uploading
more photos. It also shows the
using habit in one's profile, either
replying frequently or selectively.
OkCupid provides more specific
location of a user as well. However,
because OkCupid users are only
half of POF users and less active
than POF, I have far less interaction
with OkCupid users. Xi

The beautiful sci-        3•5/5
ence ofthe popular
OkCupid dating app
is that you can make an informed
hypothesis about someone's personality even before a single message is
exchanged. From their profile, you
can see the six things they can't live
without, how they typically spend
Friday nights and most importantly,
whether they prefer cats or dogs.
From their answers to a series of
match questions, not only can you
tell how compatible the two of you
are, but also discover their opinion
on open relationships and scary
movies. The features on this app
can be a bit overwhelming in the
beginning, as not only do you get
a notification every time someone
views your profile, but there's also a
Tinder-like tool called Quickmatch,
which allows you to swipe right for
users you like. Connections are easy
to build on this site, as users all seem
to be on the quest for a date. Why
else would they go to the trouble of
filling out the lengthy profile and
answering match questions? Xi

Tinder
Mateo Ospina
Senior StaffWriter
4/5
Tinder taught me
humility.
It's easily accessible and by far
the most popular app among university students. Bios range from
inspirational quotes to Snapchat
and Instagramusernames. The
process entails a simple method of
swiping right for interest and left
for pass. The occasion of a mutual
match is celebrated by granting
both users access to communicate
through messages with each other.
It's this same simplicity that
leads to it's biggest flaw: Tinder
is really easy to get lost in.
After an arbitrary number of
swipes, the people you are evaluating become less like people
that you would talk to and more
like objects that can be quickly
and efficiently categorized with
the flick of a finger. But I guess
that's the point, selling myself in
six photos and a single line bio to
find the right match. Xi
Mikayla Uber
Contributor
Tinder takes the com-    4 .5/5
plex world of online
dating and reduces it
to two simple words: swipe right.
All you have to do to create a profile
is compose a witty sentence or two
for your bio. Obviously this is great
for lazy personalities such as myself. Within mere minutes you are
ready to be matched with suitors
near you. The app understands our
need for immediate gratification,
as all you have to do to be matched
with someone is swipe right. It also
eliminates that awkward rejection
factor common on other dating
apps. The only way you can actually
talk to someone is if a mutual interest is first expressed by both of you
swiping right. No longer will you
receive messages from unsolicited
creeps. (Only solicited ones.)
Tinder turns online dating into a
low-pressure game, and less of a
serious science. It answers the hard
questions (do you think I'm hot? do
you want to sleep with me?) with a
simple swipe. Xi
Plenty of Fish
Tammy Hsieh
Contributor
4/5
We had Mateo, Mikayla and Tammy try out Tinder, OKCupid and Plenty of Fish for five
days and let us know what they thought of each one.
The setting of POF
is not fancy but
practical, allowing
users to upload multiple photos
with straightforward layout. The
profile includes descriptions of
appearance, interest, personal
background, ideal first date and
the kind of relationship they are
looking for. The app version is
much more user-friendly than
the web version. POF users (at
least males) are very active and
reach out to people frequently. I
received 16 messages in the first
two hours after I signed up. Most
ofthe messages are polite and
only few of them are vulgar. One
advantage (or disadvantage) of
POF is a user can search other
people by their user names. (You
can do that in the app but not the
website.) There is also a calling
function which I never dare to
use. In general, POF is a good
place to go if you are eager to
meet new people. Xi
Mateo Ospina
Senior StaffWriter
I have never heard A/ O
of a university-age
student using Plenty
of Fish. I give it a point for being
PC accessible and removing the
hassle of having to use the phone,
but with so few people to chat to,
I didn't get much use out of that
feature. The web layout is ugly
and after five days I still have not
figured out the functions of all the
tabs and multi-coloured badges.
I was bothered by the amount
of effort that it required just in the
setup. It takes too much inspiration for me to create a minimum
200-character biography. I have
no clue what kind of tagline can
really describe me.
The profile arrangement
really follows no logical order.
I was frustrated with racial
categorization that only included
'Hispanic' rather than the more
common 'Hispanic/Latino' tag
that econmpasses a wider range
of identities. tJ

Transitioning from friends to friends with benefits   Dirty talk for nice gliyS
=HOTO CHERIHAN HASSUNfTHE UBYSSEY
Becoming friends with benefits can be risky, but there are ways to mitigate the awkward bumps along the way
Ciaran Dougherty
Copy Editor
To start off, it is important to
remember that every friendship
is different, as is every person,
so the same advice will not apply
to everyone. However, I have to
write an article about it, so I will
try to give some tips that work
almost universally.
1. This should be a given, but
so many people are spectacularly bad at it: always look your
personal best when you see the
person. This is probably just
good advice in general, especially
when you like someone, including your friend that you want
to sleep with. If it only costs an
extra five minutes to pick clothes
that match and to make your
hair look good then it's probably
worth it. If your friend sees that
you are always looking good they
are more likely to want to sleep
with you. It sounds primitive,
but attraction is a primitive
instinct, and you should use it to
your advantage.
2. If you have the sort of
friendship where you talk about
sex, then talk about it. Most
people our age like to talk about
it, that's why we print this supplement, so discuss your preferences with each other. If you find
that you match in some regards
your friend is likely to notice too,
and they will then start thinking
about sleeping with you (if they
haven't already).
3. Be prepared for them to say
no. Not everyone will be into you,
and not everyone likes, or feels
comfortable having casual sex.
4. Don't try and force it. Before
you make a move, make sure
they want it. Ask them, read
their body language or their
subtext, whatever it takes to
know they want you. Getting it
wrong is a good way to harm a
friendship and you should always
have consent.
"Friends with benefits" is a
tricky concept and doesn't always
work out, but sometimes it can be
exactly what you and your friend
need. tJ
SEX))
Keeping your friends with benefits
Jovana Vranic
News Editor
University is a busy time, so naturally, trying to keep up serious
relationships can be hard. If
you're too busy for love, finding
a friend with benefits can be a
good alternative.
No-strings-attached relationships don't work for everyone,
but there are some sure fire ways
to see if they're right for you. If
you can separate physical and
emotional attraction, and are of
the belief that sex doesn't equate
to love, then it's safe to say you're
ready to find yourself a friend
with benefits.
Keep in mind, they're friends
first, and the benefits come
second. If you want to keep up a
healthy relationship, you need to
make sure that the person you're
sleeping with is someone around
whom you feel comfortable, safe
and never pressured. If you're
intending to sleep with a friend,
make sure it's one who is always
willing to talk things through
and be patient.
It's always a good idea to keep
a sort of verbal contract with
your friend with benefits. Lay
down some rules and be sure
you're well versed in what they
will and will not do in bed. And
remember, even though you may
know each other well, things can
always change — consent is key,
so always be sure to check in and
revisit that contract. Sometimes
amendments need to be made,
and that's okay.
If you want to try out something new in bed, a friend with
benefits may or may not be the
right person to do it with. Talk to
your friend, and if they're not on
board, be sure not to try to pressure or coerce them. Don't let
bedroom affairs come between
you — friendship and security
come first!
Another thing you want to
keep in mind is how private you
and your friend will be keeping your relationship. The best
course of action is probably to
tell a friend or two, just so you
have someone to chat with if
and when the going gets rough,
but even that has to be a mutual
agreement. Sex is a touchy topic
— no pun intended — and your
friend may want to keep their sex
life behind closed doors.
Friendship and sexuality
should hold equal weight in a
friends-with-benefits relationship, so be prepared to come to
mutual agreements on every
aspect. tJ
Dirty talk can be uncomfortable if you're not used to it
Gabriel Germaix
Senior StaffWriter
It all started just fine. You are
back at your place and things
take a more interesting turn.
She is enjoying it and so are
you. Little do you know there is
a storm coming. It strikes like
lightning, fast and sharp, in a
scream: "Talk dirty to me in
German!"
You freeze. She knows you
have heard it, and now she is
waiting for something to happen.
An icy chill runs down your
spine, your body temperature
drops: she is not joking. And suddenly you realize several things.
First, you two should have
taken a bit more time to know
each other. You don't even speak
German. Is she confusing you
with that Bavarian friend who
loudly introduced himself earlier
at the party? Boy, that is awkward.
Second, you know you are
terrible at this. You are a legitimate nice guy. You tried dirty
talk once, with your last partner, but they just laughed it off
and you resumed your sweet,
gentle and considerate love-making — because that is just who
=HOTO CHERIHAN HASSUNfTHE UBYSSEY
you are deep down, a big fluffy
teddy bear.
More importantly, you have to
answer the imperious request, and
fast. But how does a nice guy or a
nice girl start talking dirty?
Dirty talk will certainly trash
most codes of conduct that people
observe in society, that is, unless
a couple engages in "politically
correct dirty talk," which would
be either hilarious or extremely
boring, depending on whether the
participants are serious or not.
A nice guy or nice girl will want
to fall back on the classics. Adding
"naughty" or "filthy" should work
more often than not, while talking
about punishment, bonding and
crawling on the floor will turn
on those who are into the kinkier
activities.
Reference to the fauna of our
beautiful world can also be surprisingly effective. Using the fierce
strength of savannah predators
should have more impact than
referring to the marine world — no
one wants to hear the word "trout"
in bed, trust me.
Finally, no matter what instincts kick in, don't apologize
after sex. You were ridiculous
anyway, but hopefully, you will be
the only two who know it. Xi

What to do on
Valentine's
So you're alone on Valentine's Day!
That's totally cool. Although seeing
Facebook posts of'oh-look-at-these-
chocolates-I-just-received' can become tiresome regardless of whether you actually want a relationship,
not having a significant other on the
day of love doesn't mean that you
should miss out on doing something
fun and frivolous this weekend.
Here are a few suggestions for
things to do with friends, family or
just yourself.
Cook A Nice Meal
People who lead busy lives and
share living spaces (i.e. the vast
majority of students) will often find
that cooking an elaborate meal to be
more effort than it's worth. If you've
found yourself eating out of a can
more often than not, this may be the
time to whip up a fancy-yet-simple
fettuccine alfredo just for yourself.
Because you're worth it.
Treat Yourself
Material satisfactions will not
solve all of your problems, but the
small treat — whether it be a
cupcake, new book or small
pick-me-up from Sephora —
can definitely go a long way
towards brightening your
mood.
Get Together, Get Outside
While simply spending time
with people you care about
and choose to have in your
life is a good way to celebrate
any weekend, sometimes you
need an overly mushy-gushy,
commercialized holiday to
remind you to actually do it.
If the weather is good, go for a walk or a hike. If the
weather is bad, get together in the evening and play
board games.
Have Some Heart-Shaped Candy, Watch A Movie Or Just Do Your Damn Homework
Yes, really. In the end, the only difference between
February 14 and any other day on the calendar is that
this is the day when people decide to make public (and
often cheesy!) declarations of love and eat lots of heart-
shaped candy. How you choose to engage (or not to
engage!) with this is up to you.
So you are not alone on
Valentine's Day! You, too,
will likely come across
about a thousand-and-one
articles that tell you all about
the things that you should
do or buy or eat with your
sweetheart. That's cool if you
are into that sort of thing,
but these types of articles
usually end up falling back on
the tired old dinner-and-a-
movie routine. Here are a few
unconventional dates ideas for
you to try out this weekend.
Test Out Mattresses In
A Furniture Store
It might be fun to see how soft each ofthe mattresses
in the store really is by jumping on them with a date.
Bring along a glass of wine and see if those commercials
were lying. Whether you choose to keep what happens
after PG or not is entirely up to you. (That said, you'll
probably have to face the consequences of getting
kicked out ofthe store if you opt for the latter.)
Skype
Just because your significant other lives in a different
city doesn't mean that you should miss out on spending
some time together. There are
so many activities that you can
do together over Skype and have
almost as much fun — simultaneous
movie watching, karaoke or cooking,
just to name a few.
See A Play
This could just be the theatre buff
inside me begging for release,
but what could be more fun and
romantic than a night spent in front
ofthe stage? No matter what area of
Vancouver you call home, there is a
good chance that there will be some
performance happening near you.
Look online for cheap ticket deals.
Maturity Not Required
Let's not kid ourselves here: most
people have never truly outgrown
childish activities like hide-and-
seek, going down the slide headfirst or rewatching all of your
favourite childhood cartoons.
Lucky enough to find someone who
wants to do all that fun stuff with
you? That's how you know they're
a keeper. tJ
(and some bonus restaurant ideas)
La Belle Patate
$
A little piece of Quebec on the
wrong side ofthe Rockies, La
Belle Patate has poutine. Their
fries are double baked and their
26 varieties (Like Montreal
smoked meat) will bring you to
your knees.
Try: Montreal smoked meat
poutine.
Mean Poutine
$
It's friendlier than it sounds. With
a slogan of "Get drunk eat poutine," this place is sure to satisfy
at least a few of your cravings
(crispy Buffalo chicken in poutine? You got it).
Try: Buffalo chicken poutine.
Belgian Fries
$
The pride of Commercial Drive.
This place has any poutine combination you could ask for (Butter
chicken being one ofthe slightly
more adventurous ones), and
portion sizes out of control. Order
the large size if you're feeding a
family of four.
Try: Butter chicken poutine.
Fritz European Fry House
$
This place keeps it simple. Order
your size of fries, then choose your
toppings seperately on a menu that
can only be described as Spartan
(well, aside from delicious).
Try: Bacon bits poutine.
Smoke's Poutinerie
$
This chain isn't the fanciest of pou-
tineries, but it's still one ofthe best.
Their bacon cheesburger poutine is
no joke.
Try: Bacon cheeseburger poutine.
Fries With Benefits
$
Unlike many places that rely on
a pun for their restaurant name,
Fries With Benefits can deliver on
their promise of excellent poutine.
For a reasonable price, it's worth
checking out.
Try: Pad Thai fries.
Sliders
$$
This place mainly sells (you guessed
it) sliders, but they do a pretty swell
poutine on the side.
Try: Regular ol' poutine.
The Keefer Bar
$$$
A Chinatown apothecary-themed
eatery with exotic medical
ingredients mixed into their craft
cocktails and appetizers sounds
super weird. But it's awesome.
Trust us. Also, there's burlesque
once a week.
Try: The Bloody Ming
(Finlandia vodka, guava,
lemon, Worcestershire,
Tabasco, salt Et pepper).
Burdock and Co.
$$$
A Main Street eatery with a vibe
that walks the line between
comfortable and pretentious with
ease. Their tapas-style serving sizes
are small but packed with flavour.
Order a bunch of stuff that sounds
good, because it almost definitely
will be.
Try.B.F.C. (Spicy Burdock fried
chicken with house-made kimchi).
Les Faux Bourgeois
$$
French food that'll melt your face
off and melt in your mouth. Less
expensive than its mood-lit interior
and affinity for the Francophone
language would suggest, Les Faux
is a perfect date spot for when you
need to come off fancy (and drown
your innards in butter and salt
while you're at it).
Try: Canard Confit
(Confit duck on a warm salad of
Sarladaise potatoes,
goat cheese, arugula and port jus).
Tavola
$$$
An Italian eatery that makes
great food comfortable. While it's
not flashy, its food is awesome.
You'll be stuffing your mouth, but
remember to actually talk to your
date.
Try: Gnocchi (with brown sage
butter and pine nuts).
Wildebeest
$$$
This is where the meat-lovers take
their romantic lovers. Wildebeest
has an interesting take on the
meat house, offering unique plates
such as bone marrow and smoked
octopus. Don't be scared off if
you're not the carnivorous type,
though, there are dishes for those
without a craving for meat.
Try: Fresh oysters. t) THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2015 | SEX
act. its about comtort, trust, occasionally love and sensuality.
People don't often discuss the sensu- ":'
ality of sex, but that doesn't mean there
isn't a connection between the two. Understanding your sensuality may lead to a better
understanding of your body, and better sex.
Since this whole supplement is on sex, here are
some ways that you can explore your sensuality.
Attend a Burlesque show
Burlesque is a sensual side to sex and performance that's
not often seen, in fact it's often ignored. Did you know that
Vancouver's Rio Theatre has many different burlesque performances throughout the year? Burlesque show themes range from
nerdy to sensual and everything in between. And no, you don't have
to participate. Here are some upcoming shows to look forward to.
Valentines Day Burlesque Duos
® The Rio Theatre
Suicide Girls BlackHeart Burlesque
@ The Rickshaw
April 7
Take a pole dancing class
This one does require a little participation. Not only is pole dancing
a great workout, but it is also a great way to explore what your body is
capable of in a safe and fun environment.
Taste test different aphrodisiacs
Trying a bunch of different, supposed, aphrodisiacs is a great date
idea and also a great way to figure out what you like and what you
want (at least from your food). Food options include oysters, chili peppers, chocolate, bananas, cherries and more.
Go to a sex shop
Sex shops are a great way to learn about things that intrigue and
excite you. Perhaps the idea of being blindfolded turns you on, and
a vibrating dildo does not. You'll never know until you're faced with
the option.
Whether you actually do any of these things, spend some time learn
ing about your body and figuring out your likes and dislikes. 31 10    I   SEX   I    THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12,2015

IF YOU COULD LIVE IN AN ALTERNATE REALITY TIMELINE, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DIFFERENT?
Andrew Lai
Contributor
Virginity gets a bit of a bad rap these
days, but there are many reasons
that it's better to maintain your
chastity in today's world. Here are a
few of them:
It's a great icebreaker when meeting new people.
When initiating conversations with
new people, it is difficult to steer the
course ofthe conversation to one
that is meaningful and engaging.
Being a virgin allows you bringthe
topic up to the new person, and
upon learning you are one they will
gain a positive impression of you.
A typical conversation may go like
this:
You:
So what's up?
Them:
Nothing much, what about you?
You:
Same, ummmmmmm...
You notice at this point when you
would normally be struck with a
sense of awkwardness out of not
thinking of other topics, play your
virginity trump card.
You:
Did you know I'm a virgin?
Them:
WOW! I instantly have a great im
pression aboutyou, I know that you
are honest, resilient, humble and you
do not give into your primal desires. I
want to be your friend.
This is just one of many scenarios
in which a conversation can swing
into your favour, whilst only being
possible if you are a virgin.
Employment opportunities in the
olive oil industry
A great trade secret in the production of virgin olive oil involves the
blessings of those in our societies
who have achieved the highest levels of virginity. Olive oil has a high
amount of unsaturated fats, a fat
that has been scientifically proven
to be sort of good for you. The procurers of such olive oil must make
sure that they themselves have not
been saturated with other vices and
human body parts.
Saving the first time for
somebody special
With virginity being such a prized
possession belonging to every one of
us initially, it is a shame to give it up
prematurely when one isn't ready.
To ensure the good interests that
a partner would have, one should
wait till such a partner is part of
one's family before engaging in
sexual activity.
Rejection of hookup culture
Many people, especially college
students, are obsessed with the
culture of hooking up. These individuals often spend great lengths
of their day trying to perfect their
hanging techniques, and researching on better clothes hangers to use.
Without engaging in such activities,
a virgin would have much more
time to pursue on more meaningful
and enjoyable task such as brushing
teeth or painting toenails.
Reduced infection rate of'babies'
Rabies causes much suffering and
death among humans. A much
more prevalent disease: 'babies',
is a direct result of engaging in
sexual activity. Symptoms may include nausea, abdominal swelling,
vomiting and fatigue, among many
other ailments that may inhibit
one's ability to continue the lives
they were accustomed to.
Saving money on condominiums
In order to have safe sex, people
require condominiums to reduce
the risks associated. Given that
housing prices have risen at a rate
faster than incomes, many people
may find themselves unable to
afford or spending too high of
a proportion of their income on
condominiums. When one is a virgin without the need to have sex,
a great amount of money can be
saved by avoiding this necessity. Xi
