Dear readers,

It’s time once again for our annual Sex Issue. This issue is always such a blast to plan and put together. We put a lot of thought into how to make this issue both fun and educational, exploring all the nitty-gritty, taboo topics related to the topic of sex, while also not shying away from tough conversations about relationships, love and consent.

Our featured articles tackle all of this, from the impact of porn on young minds (both good and bad), to the realities of building a longterm relationship with a partner from a different cultural background than your own. Reporter Alex Allan explores the struggle of learning to trust after being cheated on and how that lack of trust can affect your sex life.

Also in this issue, reporter Zoë King offers her thoughts on why you should embrace your “Single Era,” while reporter Mauricio Prado speaks with couples who met their significant others on dating apps.

In the news, former Fanshawe Student Union (FSU) President Katyayini Thakur has made history as the first former international student to be hired as a full-time faculty member at Fanshawe. Read more inside about her reaction to the new appointment and what she has planned for this September.

Our cover, designed by Briana Brissett, depicts the various ways that sex affects our bodies and minds. We hope this issue inspires discussion and encourages you to resist the stigma surrounding sex and sexuality.
