Friends Don’t Let Friends Sex Drunk Drive
Kristoffer Martin (10/19/07)

The news has spread quite rapidly of the “Girl’s Gone Wild” party bus arrival here in Eau Claire. As soon as it arrived the milling of men of all ages was apparent, with honks and hoots of cheer. Their sexually explicit commercials promise tapes of sex and nude girls and all “hot girl on girl action”. What these entrepreneurs of the cheap porn industry don’t want you to see is the method and extremes they go to get their performers.

The Eau Claire tour of the group is being partially sponsored by the owners of The Pickle, the local college bar on Water Street. When asked on various subjects the answer was all the same “Sorry, no reporters.” This left many answers unhinged; why are you in Eau Claire? What are the plans for the stay? Did you guys really embezzle those millions of dollars from Hurricane Katrina victims?

Later, this Friday, after a rash “terrorism” against the Wild Bus, which included graffiti on the bus reading “Respect Yourselves” camera’s being spray painted over, and the more interesting stink bomb, a mild protest was held in front of The Pickle. The emergency protest was spurred by female rights advocates and loosely made up of mostly college students.

An Eau Claire citizen, Mark J. witnessed several incidents that occurred during the protest. These included one of the Gone Wild crew sexually assaulting one of the protesters and the exploitation of an extremely inebriated UWEC student.

The conduct of this group has been abysmal, hardly standing with any moral ground. It is this reporter’s opinion that they should not be allowed here. Their taking advantage of intoxicated students, who have no control over their inhibitions, is wrong. Getting them to sign waivers while intoxicated is wrong. And I would hope with all sincerity that none of the students at UWEC will fall further prey to such ruthless and heartless tactics used by proprietors of an all ready often degrading profession.

And to the unknown vigilante(s) who went after the bus in disgust, I cheer you on, keep fighting the good fight.
