Just had to elevate this super-smart comment into a post. Also, this line cracked me up: “Instead of ruining the moment, it seemed to me that it enhanced it (Can I take off your shirt? You sure can!).”

OK, as someone who taught at Antioch College until it closed, and was involved with maintaining the SOPP (Sexual Offense Prevention Policy), I do have some knowledge of the policy and the campus.
BTWI think the unattached straight boys at Antioch would be thrilled to know that they were the target of so much lust…really, there were lots of straight boys there and although some were surely getting some action, not all were.
Until Antioch closed in 2008 (it will reopen in 2011), the SOPP was very much alive and well and taken very seriously by students. I never understood what was so problematic about making sure everyone involved in a sexual experience was there consensually. And instead of ruining the moment, it seemed to me that it enhanced it (Can I take off your shirt? You sure can!). Although it was reduced to a joke by the media, I know some of us thought it was a great idea and wanted to be part of a community that would have such a policy.
