The presentation begins with an irreverent and funny look at the awkwardness of dating, with actors representing their gender’s perspective. Through a no-holds-barred approach, the show explores how social pressures, gender role stereotypes, and unrealistic fantasies can make social interaction a challenge. Worse still, these factors enable some to view date rape as simple seduction and cause victims of date rape to blame themselves for their own vulnerability. Ultimately, “Sex Signals” creates the kind of critical dialog necessary to dissolve enduring rape myths and encourage thoughtful, accountable, intimate behavior.
