Sex and Candy? What’s not to love? This campus event was probably not what you’d expect from the title. It was a group activity style event that used candy as a central theme to help students wrap their heads around and provoke conversation surrounding sexual abuse on college campuses across the country.

Sexual abuse can be a difficult topic to discuss, especially with first year college students. So in order to provoke students to get involved, the presenters used candy as an incentive and several metaphors to help warm up the audience and make connections about sexual assault.
