1. DO YOU GET IT?  Be sure she wants you as much as you want her. Get consent. Ask her first, “Is this OK with you?” And always respect her decision. Sex with consent is sexy. Sex without consent is rape. Respect yourself. Respect your partner.

    People sometimes ask, ‘do we still need a campaign like Consent is Sexy? Hasn’t this message already been accepted by everyone?’ But we still get many comments like the one below from Michael – who thinks being masculine means ‘to take control’. It’s clear that the work of awareness and education is not yet done.

  2. Michael says:

    This movement is utter crap. My only reward for uttering the things you suggest to women in the past is NOT getting laid that night and being thought of as a wimp who isn’t masculine enough to take control. I would consequently never see that girl ever again, as her attraction to me would completely die. In what galaxy do women find a man a who asks “I feel like kissing you now, may I?” attractive?

    I think this is a great campaign but I don’t think it should be exclusive to getting consent from women. Both partners should make sure they have consent.
    Thanks Alyssa. And we couldn’t agree with you more … check out poster 37.

    Consent IS sexy, but it is also something that is required by any and all partners involved, not just for women and not just with men.
    You’re so right. Have you seen our posters 11, 16, 24, 25 and 30 ?

    I work in advertising and I’ve learned to value a headline or slogan that intrigues because it’s edgy or controversial or raises questions. If the slogan ‘Consent is Sexy’ stirs debate and gets people thinking and talking about what is consent and what is sexy – then it’s working for the campaign!

  6. Brian says:

    I think women also need to ask this question – everyone must ask for consent when they want to have sex, not just men. Hot campaign, it should be at our school.

  7. Carlos says:

    Exactly. The word ‘consent’ in ‘Consent is Sexy’ refers to the ‘asking for consent’. Asking or being asked or having consensual sex – is what’s sexy. I love been asked by my girlfriend – it’s such a turn-on.

  8. Liz says:

    I agree with Abigail. Within the context of this campaign it’s also clear that ‘consent’ means ‘the practice of consent’. That’s what is sexy. ‘Consent is sexy’ does not mean ‘Yes is sexy.’ It’s totally everyone’s right to say No. And it’s OK to say No – when we want to. This comes across strongly.

  9. Abigail says:

    Consent is sexy because only sex with enthusiastic consent can be sexy. When sex is wanted enthusiastically – then it’s sexy! Sex with intimidation, fear, force and violence cannot be sexy, imo.

  10. Ginger says:

    Consent is sexy because it’s the right thing to do, not because its sexy.

    Smart headlines! They get your attention. Do you get it? Get what? Get consent? Get sex? I had to read it!
