Consent is the defining element separating sexual intercourse and rape or alternative relationships and domestic abuse. Add in "consensual non-consent" relationship dynamics, where consent may seem like a grey area to an outside observer, and you have a very complex subject.

In this class, we will talk over the various definitions and styles of consent and contrast many of them. This will not be about a "one true way" but rather give each attendee the tools to consciously enter into and navigate their own relationships, defining their boundaries as they see fit. We will also talk about what to do when consent breaks down and how to survive that transition and repair things when it does. Come prepared to participate in verbal exercises and group discussion.

All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated.
Cost at the door: $30.
No late entry will be allowed due to the intimate nature of this workshop. Doors will be locked at 10 minutes after the start time.
