The Enthusiastic Yes

Thu, May 14 from 7pm - 8:30pm

This event has passed.

The "enthusiastic yes" has become a popular new standard of sexual consent in the wake of the #MeToo movement. But is it really the safest form of affirmative consent? How do you get an enthusiastic yes without being coercive or just plain weird? And what do you do if you find enthusiasm hard to muster? Join us as we explore the answers to these questions and more. We'll also take a look at the history of sexual consent to inspire the creation of your own modern day consent ethos.

About the Educators:

The Consent Academy is a group of dedicated educators and activists who provide quality consent training and consultations. We have come together to promote Consent Culture through education, speaking out, and supporting organizations that want to do better. We talk a lot about consent and consensual activity. It’s the cornerstone of what we teach and who we are. And while that is easy to say, we know that living a dedication to consent takes work, awareness, and a willingness to engage. This workshop is presented by the Consent Academy.
