Seducing the Straight Girl: College Lesbian Roommates
About this deal
Jamie mentioned that she’d previously passed on an Olivia cruise when she saw that a speaker booked for the trip was Lisa Vogel. Vogel, the creator and producer of the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, shut down the lesbian feminist women’s gathering in 2015 — closing its doors entirely, after 40 years as a safe haven of living lesbian history, rather than allowing out trans women to attend. For a lot of millennial queer women, myself included, MichFest is the perfect example of something beautiful and sacred we would have loved to take part in — something we’d be forever thankful for — if only, if only, they hadn’t seen trans women as the enemy. Then somehow, all of a sudden, years passed. We became two professionals in our late twenties, living in our dream apartment on the top floor of a Brooklyn brownstone. We weren’t allowed to have pets, but, like good millennials, we had plenty of plants, and interests outside of each other: my roller derby, their ultramarathons. We were busy, stable. Happy enough.
It is so much fun get to see everyone with their families and dressed in Halloween costumes. 8. The types of candy and food that are popular during Halloween time are candy corn, caramel apples and many other fun foods. We didn’t even know how we became friends, let alone best friends. Attending anatomy classes together and spending long hours over big fat books inside an eerie library decorated with skeletons brings people closer. It helped that we both came from a small town and were staying in the same hostel. One day I told her how much I love drawing and would like to sketch her. She stared at me for long before agreeing to be by muse. But that came with one condition—she wanted to see me naked. She thought I wanted to draw her nude (and I didn’t correct her). Afterward, I had lunch with Dana and some of the other Olivia staffers and asked them about it — why not make the Public Posts more prominent, MichFest style? Especially since the younger people at the first Gen O event had explicitly asked for more sex content. Olivia had run sexuality and intimacy workshops before, and at the lunch, the staffers floated the definite possibility that they will again. I know for a fact that a lot of my queer friends would be way more likely to book a future Olivia cruise, uncool as cruises might be to cash-strapped millennials, if they knew how likely they’d be to get some action.You’ve got problems, I’ve got advice. This advice isn’t sugar-coated—in fact, it’s sugar-free, and… Read more Whenever I think about life, I think about how we are always told to “stand out” from the crowd. Erin is one of those rare people that I think actually does that. She has an incredible personality and a great sense of humor, but aside from this, she’s just different. I think “coming out” helped her to really establish herself and her uniqueness.
So I’m surprised to say I might actually travel with Olivia again, skeptical as I remain of cruise ethics in general. And that’s because of all the things that happened in the eight days I spent aboard the Summit — things I wasn’t remotely expecting.The reason as to why they haven’t acted on their actions again is not clear. Maybe they just haven’t had the opportunity because they haven’t found the right person, or maybe they are scared to experiment now that they are no longer in college. Whatever the reason, what we can gather from this confession, is that this woman experienced something she clearly wants to do again.
