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."

  • Stress Awareness Day - what's your advice?

    Hey everyone

    Once again we're coming to you guys to get your advice. For World Mental Health Day, we asked you all for some tips that we could make into graphics to share on social media. We're going to be doing a similar thing for Stress Awareness Day on the 1st of November, and we'd like to ask you this:

    What's your favourite way to unwind after a stressful day?

    If anyone has any other useful nuggets of advice or tips for dealing with stress (short term or long term), you can comment those too.

    Thanks in advance, everyone!

    Mike
    We're Aife, Mike and Emma: the staff team here at The Mix.

    After a particularly stressful day i like to talk to someone about it so i don't bottle it up and put my headphones in and listen to my favourite songs.
    Just someone changing to who they really are. Jessica, now Jacob, been a big step but im sure it will be an exciting journey.

      If I donít have anything I need to do In the evening then I like to run a warm bubble bath and relax in the bath listening to music or if the weather is nice I like going for a walk along the beach.
      Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations

        Stress is something we all face, and cope with in different ways, it's about being able to step back and find a healthy realese for stress such as writing, drawing, going for a walk, taking 'me time'.
