15. A HIGH TIME?  High times can be high risk. Drugs or alcohol are involved in most date rapes. We don’t always make good decisions about our safety when we’re high. Most sex assaults are committed by someone we know. Know the risks. Party safe. Look out for each other. Sex with consent is sexy. Sex without consent is rape. It’s criminal to take advantage of someone who’s high. Respect yourself and your partner.

    I think it is fine to tell girls to look after one another. But it could do with making their rights around these issues clearer. Also there should be a poster aimed at men, after all they prey on drunken women. There should be a too drunk to consent poster. After all, it is not right to wait until a girl can hardly walk or talk to proposition her. Most men are aware that the girl will regret this as she does not have the capacity to give consent.

    Men should be told that if there is any doubt that a girl is too drunk to consent then they should not have sex. They don’t get their end away… so what? If she likes you then exchange numbers, and when she is sober she will still be interested. If she doesn’t it’s a good job that you didn’t have sex because it’s not right to have sex with someone you know does not want to have sex with you.

    I know this would change the party scene as we know it, but so what? It’ll ensure the safety of more women than will miss out. It will also reduce predatory behaviour and hopefully change men’s attitudes towards taking advantage or ‘picking up a wasted chick’ (as men like to see it).

    Its scary to think that we get attacked by friends, by people we know.

    This is a good message – but it feels mixed for me – because we all know how great sex can be if you’re a little ‘out of it’. I’m sure there are many people out there who know what I mean. You relax, the walls come down a bit, like everyone in the poster, you can have some fun. The problem is that there are some dangerous dudes who will take advantage of someone who can’t defend herself. So sisters – take care who you shake with!
