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 consensual.
