“Sex Signals is an interactive, relevant, and often-hilarious exploration of the cultural messaging we receive about gender, sexuality, sexual health and intimate relationships. Sex Signals enables audiences to identify intervention strategies and positively change the way they think, communicate and act by encouraging bystander intervention in all aspects of their life.”
