Spinnaker

By Spinnaker Staff

This is the last issue of the Spinnaker for the semester. We are just as worried as you are about what you will do without us. Where will you get your cutting-edge news? Where will you receive your oral sex tips? Unfortunately, it looks like you’ll be lost until our next issue in June. For now, we’ll leave you with some guidance for summer fun. And remember: Don’t do anything that we wouldn’t enjoy.
