about Valentine's

By Jenni Glenn
Weekend, Etc Editor

February 14 is approaching, and.
that can only mean one thing: The
annual fake orgasm contest on WOLV
TV's program "Turned On." Much like
MTV's "Loveline," the program,
which airs Mondays at midnight,
allows viewers to call in with love and
relationship queries. The job of
answering those questions falls on
hosts Andrew "Drew" Short and Kelly
Brickner. The Michigan Daily recently
chatted with Brickner about the show
and her views on the upcoming holi-
day.
TMD: What are some of the
strangest calls you've ever gotten?
KB: Just in that (Jan. 29) episode, a
boyfriend girlfriend called up, and she
wanted to do the "American Pie" thing
- having sex on the Internet with her
friends watching -- and he wasn't sure
about it.
TMD: What was the funniest
moment on the show, on or off the air?
KB: Last year we did a show about
food and sex. and basically we just
brought a lot of whipped cream and
frosting in to the show. Right before no
one had bought any food and we had
to run to the store for sprinkles and
stuff ... They covered Seth - Seth
was the guy host ---in whioped cream.
They covered him with everything and
he was in his boxers. A Seth sundae,
that's what we called it. He had
whipped cream, a cherry, everything.
TMD: I noticed the Jan. 29 show
used cantaloupes. Do you guys always
use props?
KB: We like to bring things in. The
show on fellatio, we had two girl hosts
sucking on lollipops the whole time.
Some guys called in and said we were
driving them crazy.
TM D: flow many dates do you get
out of this?
KB: The last show someone did,
someone asked for my number, but I
have a serious boyfriend ... If they're
long time viewers, they know I have a
boyfriend because I talk about him all
the time. Andrew, the guy host, wish-
es he would get dates out of the show.
Ile says "Why don't girls call me up?"
'e might do an episode on that later,
trying to get Andrew a date. But I
think we have more guy viewers than
girls-

TID: How does your boyfriend
feel about being discussed on the
show ?
KB: To be honest, he doesn't go to
school here, so he's never seen the
show. At first he wasn't very happy
about it, but now he doesn't care. ... I
try to stay away from personal stories
about him and I and stick to stories
about friends of mine.
TID: Since the holiday is coming
up, what is your Valentine's advice?
KB: I would say chocolate straw-
berries, because that's what I really
want for Valentine's Day. And watch
our Valentine's Day episode because
you could win prizes from the Safe
Sex Store and that would make your
Valentine's Day a lot more interesting.
TMD: Who's the sexiest celebrity,
fiom your expert perspective'
KB: Definitely Brad Pitt. Even my
boyfriend thinks he's sexy.
TMD: What are some of the
strangest things your co-hosts do?
KB: Last year Andrew actually had
a show where he just begged for dates
the whole show ... We weren't sup-
posed to have a show that week, so he
just locked the cameras in front of him
and begged for dates. Maybe two girls
called.
TID: What did the girls say?
KB: I think he maybe went out with
one of them and he said it wasn't an
experience he'd like to repeat. But I
don't think that will stop him for beg-
ging for dates again.
Oh, and Andrew also showed his
bare ass on the show last year. ... I
think he will definitely do that again
sometime this season. He likes to do
that. He's not embarassed.
TMD: So what do you think of
cable shows like "Loveline?"
KB: The reason I think our show is
so appealing, more than "Loveline," I
think it's the fact that it's local. We talk
about local issues, like how everyone
wants to have sex in the Grad Library
stacks. I think it's more of a spectacle
because you're hearing true stories
about people right around you, rather
than "Loveline" which is very nation-
al. Also, we can get away with doing
certain things on the air that you real-
ly wouldn't expect.
TMD: I must say, I've never seen
anyone flashing anyone on
"Loveline."
KB: No, that's definitely one
advantage of our program.

For the Daily
Sex, Nowadays, especially for college students, sex is
everywhere. From frat parties to Fox's rather orgy-esque
"Temptation Island" series, the issue of sex has become
nearly impossible to avoid. A number of teens, however,
are pledging to do just that.
According to a recent article in Time Magazine ( The
good [and bad?] News about Virginity Pledges,"
1/ l 7/01). a new trend is emerging among teens between
the ages of 14-18: Publicly promising to postpone sexual
intercourse until after marriage. Sounds impossible?
Perhaps not, refutes a study by the National Institute of
Child Health and Human Development. According to
their study, teens who make these "virginity pledges"
refrain from sexual intercourse for approximately a year
and a half longer than those who do not.
Although the majority of University students are older
than those teens included in the study, the issue of pre-
marital sex continues to raise strong opinions throughout
the student population.
"Most kids don't look at the world from a long-term
point of view," LSA sophomore Sandro Faber-Bermudez
said. "They want pleasure now, so they have sex - with-
out thinking about the consequences."
According to LSA sophomore Gary Axelrod, "Once
you lose your virginity, you cannot get it back ... I
strongly believe that virginity should only be lost by indi-
viduals once they are married, and their relationship has
matured."
Even in today's sexually charged society, many teens
continue to reject the idea of pre-marital sex. From rea-
sons ranging from family upbringing to religious values,
a number of teens openly admit to preferring the "big M"
to the "big O." Among both virgins and sexually active
teens, however, several students contest the validity of
virginity pledges.
