Description: 

Why throw a party in honor of consensual sex, you ask? Here's why!

It is necessary to talk about sexual assault and learn more about preventing it. It is necessary to educate the community on the importance of consent. The absence of "no" does not equal "yes." The line between "no" and "yes" is too often blurred by miscommunication or refusal to listen, and worse, the lack of communication has even amde this topic uncomfortable to discuss.

Consent requires an enthusiastic and FREELY GIVEN "YES!" Every. Single. Time.

By having events such as the I <3  Consensual Sex party, targeted specifically to college-aged youth, we intentionally create a public, light-hearted atmosphere to reduce the discomfort surrounding discussions on the otherwise serious topic of sexual assault. We ulitmately hope to create a context in which people can communicate about sex in way that reduces the violence and coercion that often surrounds sexual expression.
