I went onto “Speaking of Sex”, a podcast hosted by Pleasure Mechanics, and spoke to them about some working definitions of consent culture, how systems of power complicate what we can say yes and no to, and how practicing consent in the bedroom can empower you in other parts of your life.
Dr. Martha Lee invited me onto her show Eros Evolution to discuss what consent culture is, why it’s important, and how it can challenge rape culture. Within this show, we explore the ways in which alternative sexualities embrace constructs of consent, and the ways in which we are still learning.
Wow! Exciting to get such a rave review from hellogiggles about “Ask” – they say:
“Consent shouldn’t be such a hard thing to talk about. There are videos of studies that show toddlers understand the concept of consent, yet when we talk to young, sexually active men and women, everything gets muddled for some reason. It shouldn’t be so difficult to figure out for adults. If you want to fight back against rape culture, learning the lingo of consent culture with a book like this is not a bad start.”
I got to have a lovely chat with Tristan Taormino, one of my favourite sex educators, on her show Sex Out Loud – we cover porn, body image, activism, and why it’s so important to build a consent culture.
