Humans of Wellesley Interview #1

“SHE stands for Sexual Health Educators. We are resources on campus that are meant to give students confidential care, in terms of sexuality and sexual health. I am even just someone who could give someone advice in general, even if it’s not about sex. The basics are just providing safer sex resources and then being a reference; one of the biggest parts of the SHEs is that no one is a “Super SHE”, no one’s going to know everything about sexual health and no one’s going to be able to do it all. Everyone has different specialties, for example, my big and I specialize in BDSM/Kink so that’s something that’s really good about being a SHE. There’s stuff about gender identity, relationship issues, pregnancies, and STIs/STDs. Yeah, we’re just a really cool resource on campus so people should reach out! We work with Health Services too, which makes it less daunting.”

“Why I wanted to be SHE? It’s actually kind of a funny story. I wanted to be a SHE since I was a prospie… I was kind of obsessed with it. I met this older student that was from the same area as me and she told me I should check it out. I’ve always been interested in sexual health and sexuality in general, and it’s so interesting for me to think about how people relate in such a raw and vulnerable way to each other. What the SHEs strive to do is get rid of a lot of the taboos or stigmas that are behind sex and to just be able to talk about it. One of the inhibitors of ‘good sex’ is not talking about it or being honest enough, so that’s something I strive to have in my own sex life and in my advice to others on theirs.”

“I recently got out of a relationship where I was pretty much whitewashed by my significant other. But now, being with someone who is very culturally understanding and who shows an interest in it, that’s been really wonderful. Ooh, but sexuality and being Asian… that’s interesting. It’s reflected in my family, too, because they have a lot of black and white thinking even though the identity itself comes with a lot of gray area. Everyone knows that Asian women are heavily fetishized. I’ve had guys tell me on Tinder ‘oh, I’ve always had an Asian on my list’, like it’s an asset or part of my sexuality. Then there’s the opposite for Asian guys where they’re heavily infantilized and demasculinated. In popular culture they’re seen as one of the least desirable races of men, which sucks! And there’s all sorts of stereotypes, like the Asian girl who’s dating the white man just to climb up the social hierarchy. And this is all a result of so many things such as colonialism, white supremacy, racial hierarchy.”
