Bwog Personals

Written by

Midterms month is rough, what with the long hours spent staring up at the ceiling of the Butler reading rooms (are those deer antlers? I think so!) and praying for it all to end. Might we suggest some (potentially) intimate human contact to help you recover your undoubtedly fleeting social acumen? All interested parties should contact Bwog via email and we’ll provide the $5 for the date. And as always, nominate your friends (or yourself) for a personal by emailing [email protected]

    Dear Darya,

    Drinking caffeine free Diet Coke is like having sex with 12 condoms on.

  2. qqqqqqqqqqq  

    some of us cannot enjoy sex without the calming satisfaction that breakage is only 3^(12)% with 12 condoms.

    • misguided!  

      You assume that each condom's failure rate is independent when they are used at the same time. However that fails to account for the surface interactions and the increased stresses on the outer condoms. Chances of the condoms slipping off or tearing increase considerably and unless your penis is on the smaller end of the intended size range for the condoms you're using (assuming all condoms are the same size) then the outer condoms will probably break pretty quickly. You may very well end up with a probability of breakage that exceeds that of a single condom.
      However, I think the best way to further analyze the situation is via empirical testing. So ladies, please show up at my door with no fewer than one dozen condoms each and sign up for any of the available 5 minute slots. I'll report back as soon as we're done. And I have a few cigs.

  3. Curious  

    Kirill's picture looks more like one for a guy-for-guy personal.

  4. just so you know  

    Darya's great, even if she does like caffeine-free diet coke.

  5. Hunger Striker  

    Bwog, how does this relate to the hunger strike???!!!??

    • Well  

      He is eating a corn dog in his picture. I believe corn dogs are on the "no food list" for the strikers...(raises more questions: do corndogs contain any nutrients to be considered food)

  6. darya deker  

    is a goddess.

  7. Sadia  

    Darya Deker is beautiful and amazing.

  8. $5...  

    For a date? No wonder these people are looking. Pony up Bwog.

  9. Legendarya  

    Darya is pretty much the best person I know here at Columbia. Boys, she's a real catch.

  10. obviously....  

    there are way to many of darya's friends posting.

  11. i think  

    the dude is gay...

    edible penis hanging out of his mouth + pink background + choice in music = QUEER

  12. CML  

    Come on, guys. Any reading that fingers Kirill's personal as gay is superficial. Favorite meal, a JUDGE, DELUXE, from HAM DEL?

  13. me!  

    i think the girl is cute, but her apparent affinity for The Heights' beverages is a big turn off.

  14. ...

    usually the people you put up on these personals tend to not be terribly desirable but definitly not this girl... as a kazakhistani poet once said: "wa-wa-wee-wa"

    don't know her but hopefully i'll run into this girl at 1020 sometime...

  15. UKRAIN'SKA  


  16. dear kirill  

    i'd totally hitit.

  17. meme  

    I'm not Darya's friend, I only met her once at a party, but I can say I found her to be charming, awesome, and fun. Snap her up, boys!

  18. DAMN!!!  

    I'm not black, but I must say, "That bitch be fine!"

  19. Anonymous  

    I'd hit her like the fist of an angry god.

    I'd hit her like the meteor that killed the dinosaurs.

    I'd hit her so hard that the person who pulled me out would become King of England.


  20. another

    I'd hit it like FDR hit the treadmill.

  21. rambo

    yeah Darya is a legit hot piece of ass.
