Stephanie Warner 28 February 2008 Sex Signals Sex Signals , put on by MARS, was a high energy comedy show that touched on topics dealing with sex, stereotypes, communication with the opposite sex, and sexual assault.

The actors challenged us to provide solutions to improve communication in intrapersonal relationships, in various situations you could find yourself in with the opposite sex.
