LOGAN, Utah (AP) - Utah State University is posting ads around campus designed to inform students about exactly what consensual sex is.

The Herald Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2dMOJQd) that the ads say consent is “enthusiastic, sober, verbal, non-coerced and mutual,” and adds that harassment includes sending explicit text messages or videos without consent.

USU spokesman Tim Vitale says administrators want students to see the message often during the 10-week campaign. The ads have been posted on university shuttle buses and elsewhere on campus.

The campaign comes after a series of sexual assault cases at USU, including two where fraternity brothers pleaded guilty to separate criminal charges.

An ex-USU football player was also cut by the Atlanta Falcons after they found out Utah authorities had investigated four allegations of sexual assault against him. He has not been arrested or charged.
