Sex at CPAC

“I met this girl the night before. She texted at 7 p.m. and had heard about an open bar party. I got really drunk and we started making out,” he recalled. Soon they agreed to go somewhere “more private.” In other words, the back of the bar, where there was a curtain of sorts. Joe warns: “I suggest not eating there.”

He said he left the following morning and thinks he and the woman texted a little. He didn’t seem terribly sure about that though. As for this year, he said, “I haven’t seen her.” He reasoned, “Kids getting drunk. Things happen.”

But not everyone believes that’s such a hot idea.

A 23-year-old Catholic college senior with floppy dark bangs gave a different take on sex and CPAC – it shouldn’t happen. “I think it’s unfortunate that CPAC has come to that,” he said, shielding his CPAC credentials to hide his name. “I think the hook-up culture is real. I think there is still a place for morality and God.”

But he appeared to understand the inevitably of it all: “These are college kids. I’m not blind.”
