KINGSVILLE (February 1, 2007) — The Campus Activities Board at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will sponsor Sexsignals, described as “an in-your-face, no-holds-barred look at the college dating scene,” at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 12, in the ballrooms of the Memorial Student Union Building.

Sexsignals blends a unique combination of improvisational comedy, education and audience participation to provide a provocative look at the issues of dating, sex and ultimately date rape on college campuses.

The show explores how mixed message, gender role stereotypes and unrealistic fantasies contribute to misunderstanding between the sexes. At their worst, these factors enable some to view date rape as simple seduction and for victims of date rape to blame themselves for their vulnerability.

Although the message is a serious one, Sexsignals uses humor throughout to engage audiences in candid discussions about their interpersonal relationships. The performers are seasoned educators and facilitators who strike a balance between laughing about the differences between men and women and clearly communicating some serious messages about how we treat one another.

This interactive show was first produced and critically acclaimed as The Sensitive Swashbuckler and Other Dating Myths at Chicago’s highly respected Stage Left Theatre. Since then, the show has been performed for over 200 different audiences throughout the country and is becoming one of the most popular programs on sexual assault awareness among college audiences and educators.
