Reason Weekly Contest: Clarify a Sexual Consent Policy

Last week's winners revealed.


College sex

Welcome back to the Reason Weekly Contest! This week's question is:

The University of Minnesota has drafted an affirmative consent policy that it hopes will make its "Yes Means Yes" policy clearer. One provision is "…where there is confusion about the state of consent, sexual activity must stop until both parties consent again." Please come up with another (printable!) provision.

How to enter: Submissions should be e-mailed to Please include your name, city, and state. This week, kindly type "CONSENT" in the subject line. Entries are due by 11 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday, July 20. Winners will appear Friday, July 24, right here at

In the case of identical or similar entries, the first one received gets credit. First prize is a one-year digital subscription to Reason magazine, plus bragging rights. While we appreciate kibbitzing in the comments below, you must email your answer to enter the contest. Feel free to enter more than once, and good luck!
