You would think any story about college kids and trampolines, ball pits, bounce houses, or other playground equipment would include alcohol, and sex. I must confess, a former girlfriend who may or may not have been Salma Hayek and I did some inappropriate, and by inappropriate I mean fun, things on a trampoline once when I was 19. And not once did we discuss “Social Justice” or bash Capitalism, or fight the “Patriarchy”. And no, my girlfriend wasn’t Salma Hayek, but can’t a guy dream?
