Sex Workshop Discusses Consent and Negotiation

In a room in Sever Hall Monday night, cookies were passed around and tea was served—a low-key setting for the discussion of sex. For two hours, representatives from the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response and Harvard College Munch—a kinky sex discussion group at the College—discussed the importance of consent and negotiation in relationships.

Body Image Takes Center Stage

“Measure Up,” which played in Adams Pool Theatre until April 7, comprised two very different plays on the subject of feminine identity. The first play, “Beautiful Bodies,” written by Laura Cunningham and directed by Rachel J. Stephens ’15, took a much more realistic approach to the subject, retelling the story of six women gathered for a baby shower. This performance, which investigated the thoughts and struggles of women through their conversations, was perfectly contrasted by a surreal second play, “The Most Massive Woman Wins,” written by Madeleine George and directed by Lelaina E. Vogel ’15. Both plays worked in tandem to build and destroy the modern conception of a woman.
