Enthusiastic Consent: A new model for better – and safer– sexuality

Evans Way Tudbury Auditorium

What if, instead of just the absence of “no,” an enthusiastic “yes” was required as a standard for sexual consent? What if, instead of treating sex like a commodity that women need to guard and men need to get, our culture viewed sex as a collaborative improv performance? Based on her hit book Yes MeansYes: Visions of Female Sexual Power and a World Without Rape, Friedman’s presentation dismantles commonly held beliefs about rape and replaces them with a genuine understanding and respect for everyone’s sexual pleasure. Join her on January 23, 2013, to smash boxes and explore some radical paradigm shifts that just might heal our sickly sexual culture – and talk about how to get there from here.

This is a Wentworth event. Program sponsors include: The Center for Wellness and Disability Services, Campus Life, PEAK, & WEB
