On February 7th, 2012 at 8p.m. on the campus of Stony Brook University, located in Stony Brook, NY, LASO (Latin American Students Organization) partnered with the popular CLE Magazine, to bring the campus Stony Brook Late Night: Valentines Day Edition.
The event was a forum in which questions & scenarios were posed to a panel of Stony Brook students, a sex educator and dating specialists. The panel included: Emil Mequita, Shantel Valentin, Robert Santiago, Dj StereOtype and Stanley Fritz.
They answered questions that covered popular sex and relationship concerns among college students, such as: Are one night stands making our relationships more and more superficial? What are some of the biggest double standards that get in the way of dating her on campus? If I’m allergic to latex, what is the safest way to protect myself [during sex]?
The panelists explained how to avoid breaking the bank for Valentine’s Day, creative date ideas for Valentine’s Day, and how to put the spark back into a mundane relationship. The purpose of the program was “to bring professional relationship counselors to Stony Brook to help give advice to college students right before they profess their love on the 14th [Valentine’s Day]” as explained by the hosts of the event, Janice Hernandez (Historian of LASO) and J.R. Yussuf (Editor of the sex and dating section of CLEMagazine.com).
It was a very interactive event as multiple audience members joined in the games, asked the panel questions, participated in a raffle, and received condoms and a Valentine’s Day mixtape as they exited. It was an event filled with laughs, lovey-dovey moments for the sentimentalists at heart, and giveaways.
