When Avril Lavigne came out with her classic hit “Sk8er Boy” fifteen years ago, it marked a major change in how suitable skateboarders appeared to potential mates. When once we were written-off as major losers not worth the price of a prophylactic, now you’ll get thirsty looks and maybe even a catcall or two even if you’re just carrying your skateboard. Girls love it, guys love it. Everyone in 2017 loves skateboarders – or at least they think they do.

But nothing’s really changed in how awkward skaters can be when faced with a real world opportunity to score. It’s only human to turn shy or too talkative when on a date, all the blood is rushing from your noggin to your nether-regions. So, in an effort to help skaters capitalize on their exotic eroticism to non-skaters, we decided to start a series where we set up skaters with normies on a blind first date. And to up the awkwardness of the whole thing, we filmed it all for your viewing pleasure.

For the first episode of “Date a Sk8er,” we set up Tyler, a lovable galoot from Texas, with Valeria, a young Russian fashion designer/bar hand, and had them hit a bar nearby the Jenkem office. A match made in heaven, or the date from hell? Watch to find out…

Wanna be our next participant? If you live in / can get to the NYC area, send a short profile video explaining why we should set you up to staff@jenkemmag.com. All gender identities and sexual orientations welcome!

    Valerie reminds me of a girl I met in my first year of college English. I always thought she was beautiful and she was smart and interesting to talk to. I would think to myself, “how can she be single?”. I really thought I had found my soulmate. 💏 We became somewhat intimate towards the tail end of the semester and I was hoping to have some sort of relationship with this broad. I soon came to find out she was a single mother of two 👩‍👧‍👧 I was devestated 🤧🤧to say the least. I might have briefly contemplated fathering two bastard children to be with what seemed to me as the perfect woman. However the baggage was to heavy. My day is now Ruined for having to think about what could’ve been after watching this video. Nevertheless, keep up the good content Jenk.
    And Fuck you.

    Sincerely,
    Dave
