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."

    Hello.

    This forum is a bit different to the others; it's here to help us get exposure for The Mix. As you know, we are a charity and we need coverage in the press to help our profile with potential funders and supporters. In short, we have to demonstrate that you find The Mix helpful and supportive.

    Often we get calls from journalists wanting to go onto the boards to research articles. This has its good and bad points. On the one hand it's great to get the exposure but on the other hand we DO NOT want you guys to be unwittingly used and abused. No, really.

    And that's why we decided to create this forum. From time to time we will give permission to journalists (vetoed by our communications team) to come on here and canvass your opinions or try and recruit you for interviews.

    Sometimes our inhouse fundraisers or marketing people might also come on and ask for your help. For example, when we do reports for funders, it?s great to have direct quotes from users saying how much they like our stuff.

    So what do you get out of it? Well, taking part in interviews is excellent experience. It builds your confidence and you'll go away knowing that you have helped us enormously (...and may even be given a few goodies for your efforts)

    As we've already said, threads will only appear on this forum if we are happy with them. Thanks again for your help. You can PM if you have any questions.

    The Mix team.
    We're Aife, Mike and Emma: the staff team here at The Mix.
    While we can't offer support via this account, if you have any questions about this place, feel free to
    ask over in the
    Help Desk or send us a private message.
