Expert chat: Enthusiastic Consent & Conditional Consent (Wed 21st February)

Hey everyone!

On Wednesday 21st Feb at 6.30pm, Sarah our expert, will be running an expert chat about Enthusiastic Consent and Conditional Consent.

Sarah is the co-founder of Scarlet Ladies, a community of women with the aim to destigmatise and normalise the conversation around female sexuality.

Suffering from post traumatic stress disorder after experiencing a number of traumas, including rape, Sarah is reclaiming her body by engaging in bodybuilding and powerlifting. Taking back control of her sexuality, she is currently remaining abstinent. Working and campaigning with other women for the sexual empowerment of women has been an integral part of her healing journey.

Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

    I thought the titles changed at 250? Also I've seen a few users who have like 50 posts and their title still says Noob or Newbie?

      Ah, I noticed this too Elle and made a post about it. You should be rampant like me!!!

      Aife, James told me that the software running the site is supposed to refresh the titles hourly but hadn't been doing, he refreshed them manually. Hope this helps!

                    My post count is probably not accurate - many posters (including myself) lost posts when the boards were upgraded years ago. There are some members with double that count, though I haven't seen any of them active for quite some time
                    Before facebook and other social media sites this place was buzzing and it was quite easy make dozens of posts a day.

                      That's really interesting actually... I only joined this place last year so this is it how I know it. But you have been here since a year before I was born (wow) so I'm not surprised it was different!! We're you one of the first members?

                          I remember you wondering if yours would change at 1000. It's really odd.

                            Wow. Now I feel old. I joined in May 2001 under a different account but there were plenty of members from 2000 - some of whom were active up until very recently. We've had people meet each other through TheSite, get married and have babies. We've had posters go to prison, and we've sadly had a couple of members pass away. And tons of funny moments and arguments.

                              Yeah I know and I checked and it should have changed at 1000 to fanatical poster and soon after 1500 is postaholic so I shouldnt be incredible poster
