Here’s Something We Can Both Enjoy

Once again The Good Men Project hits us all with some knowledge. Harris O’Malley‘s piece, “It’s Okay to Want Sex” addresses a touchy issue in the best way. In his own words, “I wasn’t seeing sex – or romance, for that matter – in terms of ‘here’s a fun thing we can both enjoy’, I was seeing it as ‘what do I have to do to get you to sleep with me.’ It was an adversarial process – one encouraged by society at large – and one that simultaneously demonized and praised male sexuality while insisting that female sexuality was less important, if it existed at all.” This the essence of Party With Consent. Relationships aren’t games where one party wins and one party loses. A Relationship, sexual or otherwise, is a culmination of the interactions and emotions you share with another human being. And our relationships become beautiful when together both parties get more than what they once had. It’s not a zero sum game. When we collectively celebrate these relationships, we are partying. And when we feel safe together the better partying we can do. The good times are better. The stories are better. The memories are better. Party With Consent promotes positive partying and enthusiastic consent at high schools, colleges, universities, and other communities.

Consent in College

An opinion piece from The Cornell Daily Sun, outlines the current issue of sexual assault at colleges and universities across the country. In her piece “Sex, Alcohol, and Clear Consent“, authors Mary Beth Grant and Cynthia Grant Bowman explain the issue phenomenally in their opening paragraph, “We assume that everyone reading this article has no plan to sexually assault anyone and would be horrified to think that sexual behavior in which he or she engaged could be considered over the line that divides good fun for all participants from sexual assault. Yet every year people engage in sexual assault at Cornell. Not all cases are reported, but the victims of the sexual assaults show up at Gannett’s Victim’s Advocate, or talk to doctors and RAs about what happened, or work with the counseling center, or take leaves to get away for a bit.” And there is no doubt that many other college campuses have the same issue. Party With Consent can bring a positive reinforcement to your campus’s party culture. We agree that at college, there are very few, if any, students who wake up and say, “I’m going to rape someone tonight,” and truly mean it. That is why we believe Party With Consent works. Through buying a tank and donning it when you go out on the weekend, you immediately become part of the solution to a problem that affects so many every year. It simply acts as a reminder to check your actions and a reminder to remember your own right to consent. Join the...

You Can Get Laid Without Being a Jerk

College comes with many social pressures and those come with many myths. Columnist Emily Heist Moss, tackles one of these myths on The Good Men Project. Her article entitled, “You can get laid without being a jerk” hits at the core of the Party With Consent message. Consensual partying is better partying. Moss states, “You should never feel like you’ve been convinced to have sex, and you should never feel like you’re doing the convincing. You want partners—one-night-stands or long-term relationships—who want to have sex with you as much as you want to have sex with them,” she continues, “The culturally established ‘no means no’ is too low a bar. Only yes means yes. And I’m not talking about an ‘I guess we could…’ or an ‘I don’t really care….’ or an ‘Only if you really want to….’ or a ‘Might as well…’ I’m talking about an enthusiastic, excited, sustained ‘Yes!’ Are those ‘yesses’ less frequent than the non-committal, hesitant ‘not-nos?’ Yeah, they are, but it’s worth it to know that the people you’re fooling around with really want to fool around with you, too.” Bringing Party With Consent to your campus can turn Moss’s insightful words into a movement that everyone can get excited about. Our tanks makes supporting consent even more fun than it already is. Keep it classy and...
