Consent is Sexy!

The Consent is Sexy campaign has been initiated to raise awareness around the issue of sexual rights, and more specifically, Consent and Respect- to reduce conflict within relationships, and to counter sexual assault and rape.

The CSUB Alcohol and Drug Education Committee wants to encourage students to talk about consent and know when consent can and cannot be given. Show your partner that you respect him/her enough to ask about his/her sexual needs and desires. If you are not accustomed to communicating with your partner about sex and sexual activity, the first few times may feel awkward. But, practice makes perfect. Be creative and spontaneous. Don't give up. The more you have these conversations with your partner, the more comfortable you will become communicating about sex and sexual activity. Your partner may also find the situation awkward at first, but in time you will both be more secure in yourselves and your relationship.

 Our Consent is Sexy first round contest has finished, and the winning consent lines were:  

  •  "So you're an adult, I'm an adult...you wanna do some adult things?"
  • "Do you like bananas or blueberries? Why? I wanna know what kind of pancakes to make in the morning."
  • "You wanna be like Marvin Gaye and get it on?"
  • "It is better to ask for consent and be rejected, than to not ask for consent and be arrested."
