"Antioch Policy" Continued from page 1 In general, some of the highly publici7.ed aspccL<> of the nine page sexual conduct co de arc: If sexual contac t and/or conduct is not mutually and sirnultaneously initiated, tllcn the person who initiates sexual contact/conduct is responsible for getting the verbal consent of the other indiviclual(s) involved. Obtaining consent is an ongoing pro cess in any sexual interaction Verbal consent should be ob tained with each new level of physical and/or sexual con tact/conduct in any given interaction, regardless of who ini tiates it. Asking "Do you want to have sex with me?'' is not enough. 'l11e request for consent must be specific to each act. J o knowingly take advantage of someone who is under the inOuence of alcohol, drugs and/or prescribed medication is not acceptable behavior in the Antioch community. If some one has initi:1lly consented but then stops consenting during a sexual interaction, s/he should withdrawal verbally and/or through physical 'J'he other inclividual(s) stop immediately. The artid quotes one student s11ying, I don t think anybody is following that polk.-y word for word, I'm certain l y not." The article suggests, however, that while stu dents may be n outing" the Jeucr of the law, they arc r emain ing true to its spirit. New Co ll ege is studying the Antioch policy as a pos sible model for usc in the student code. Copies of the Antioch policy are available on campus by contacting the Sexuallla rassment Policy committee. ------------------March 28. 1991 ------------------
