Holiday Love from Bedsider ATX
‘Tis the season to be with family and friends, eat pecan pie, and find the best method for your birth control needs (if you haven’t already). Last night, Bedsider ATX sponsored trivia at Butterfly Bar hosted by Who Wants a Dollar quizmasters. The questions were all about sex and the holidays, and the trivia-goers gave the Bedsider team a run for our money.
Bedsider ATX is winding down for 2012 and boy has it been an incredible year for us! And don’t you fret, we will be back in full effect come 2013, with new team members and even more enthusiasm. Make sure to check out the Bedsider ATX Facebook page in the new year to keep up to date with all of our events. If you are interested in joining the team in Austin next year, shoot an email our way at email@example.com. We have a sneaking feeling that 2013 will be the year of the sexplorer!
Alyssa is a senior at The University of Texas at Austin studying Psychology. She is a sex educator for the Healthy Sexuality Peer Educators at UT and has a huge passion for public health and all things quirky. Alyssa is an intern for Bedsider’s ATX campaign and will be reporting every Wednesday with the inside scoop on all things Bedsider (along with the occasional band, book, or documentary recommendation and a baked-goods recipe or two) in the wild of Austin.
My Couch Pulls Out But I Don’t
Ever played pub trivia? Even if you have, you probably didn’t compete against every sorority at your school.
Last week, Stefanie and I hosted a pub trivia contest with the GW (George Washington University) PanHellenic Association. Ten sororities came out to participate and, let me tell you, the competition was seriously cutthroat!
There were over 200 people from Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, Chi Omega, Sigma Delta Tau, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Epsilon Phi, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Beta Phi, Phi Sigma Sigma, and Sigma Kappa cheering on their sisters as they competed to win the best prize ever (In my opinion, at least) A free spa package! Hello, I’ll take one of those!
Stefanie, here. I’m going to be interrupting Cecilia’s post with my own peanut gallery comments. Just wanted to warn you before we get too far into this. Sorry Cecilia, as you were saying…
Stefanie and I did a walkthrough of Bedsider to show the girls a little bit about how it can help you find the method of birth control that’s best for you, set up birth control reminders, and add some high-quality entertainment to your life. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy how-to articles on unleashing your inner sex kitten?
And then it was time for the ultimate trivia challenge. We wanted to see how much these smart, driven, pretty sorority girls really knew about birth control, living healthy lifestyles, and sex in general. We even got to test their pop-culture brains. I guess not everyone knows that Snooki is pregnant? Well, now you do.
Each sorority had to come up with the most creative team name. Alpha Phi won the judges over with “Alpha Feel me up,” but my personal favorite was “My couch pulls out but I don’t.” Hence the title of this blog post.
Stefanie again—that one was my favorite too! I think I might have even slow clapped when they said their team name.
We even got to test some of their skills. This made for some pretty great comic relief. My favorite contest was a race to put a condom on a banana. Check out this intensity.
Umm, the winning team did it in 5 seconds. 5! It was so fast. That is also what she said.
The girls also really enjoyed getting to sing their favorite sex songs. Team “SDT Not STD” sang “I Just Had Sex” By Akon. Who doesn’t love that song?
The competition was so cut throat that it all came down to a tie-breaker in the end. Who could list the most sex-positions? Not this guy! All I can say is the “Alpha Feel Me Ups” seem to be the ones getting the most action around here!
Pun intended. Well done, Cecilia. Well done.

When she’s not watching Mad Men, listening to a wide spectrum of music, or busting a move, this George Washington University business student can be found preparing to take on Atlanta, GA, where she will be joining the Teach for America Corps next year.

When she is not on college campuses talking about birth control and Bedsider, she is hanging out with some pretty awesome teens. She is from the great state of California and is a little awkward, both of which she will tell you in the first 30 seconds of a conversation.
