Consent is Sexy is a sexual rights awareness campaign that hopes to:
- The awareness and practice of respect, consent and open discussion;
- Responsible, safer sex, sexual health and emotional well-being;
- Gender equality and equality of rights in relationships.
- Interpersonal and relationship abuse, sexual assault, intimate partner rape and acquaintance or date rape;
- Gender discrimination and homophobia.
Promotes informed choices based on Consent, Respect and Open Discussion - free of coercion, fear and violence
Is sex-positive - it does not encourage anyone not to have sex. And it doesn't encourage to have sex. It only encourages those who want to have sex to be sure they have their partner's consent
Strives to speak equally to men and women - by recognizing the right to respect and consent for both sexes
Doesn't demonize men: it avoids focusing on men as the only gender capable of abusive behavior, by recognizing that both men and women can be abused - and abusers
Contributes positively to the sexual health and emotional well-being of all students, by offering information which focuses on benefits and risks, rather than prescriptive moralizing and finger-wagging.
- All the poster, leaflet messages, and images in the CIS Campaign are tested in focus groups and they were revised to better address the unique issues of Tulane. This collaborative process keeps the campaign messages real and relevant.
- By collaborating on campaign content, creating and producing events, planning and rolling-out the campaign - students 'take ownership' of the campaign - a vital process for a successful campaign.
- The CIS Posters and Leaflet encourage enquiry and open discussion by inviting students to question negative attitudes and behavior; to discuss these issues with partners and friends. This is a necessary process for a shift in attitudes and a resultant change in behavior to occur.
- The CIS Interactive Events are designed to make messages impactful and memorable; to engage and stimulate exploration and discussion.
