A two-person team of highly-trained educators takes the audience on an interactive, relevant, and often-hilarious exploration of beliefs, behaviors, and gender stereotypes related to dating and sexual interaction. The format enables audience members, who may have mislabeled coercion as consent, to engage with presenters, and one another, making reflection, behavioral change, and bystander intervention possible.
