BARE is Skidmore College’s premiere Sex Publication and Open Forum. It was started in Spring of ’09 by inspired freshman, Olivia Morrow and Sarah Rosenblatt and since then we created our first extremely successful edition of BARE in Spring 2010. The meetings that we have once a week are discussion based, with topics ranging from the Skidmore hook-up culture, porn, and fetish’s, to polyamory, fantasies, and masturbation.
BARE is a forum whose purpose is to create an intimate and open community of sexual positivity through honest dialogue and the development of a safe space. BARE attempts to breakdown harmful sexual stereotypes and promote various forms of fulfilling, consensual sexuality. We aim to give a voice to the taboo, the shameful, the invisible and the unheard. Whether or not you agree with the opinions expressed herein, they are relevant to you and our campus [Skidmore College] because whether we abstain, enjoy, or dabble, we are all sexual beings.
