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."

    100% agree independent_ but i put mashed up banana in the pancake mix which makes it extra amazing
    Just someone changing to who they really are. Jessica, now Jacob, been a big step but im sure it will be an exciting journey.

      I put Mirabelle's Chocolate Spread on my pancakes. For taste, it beats the pants off oily Nutella. Or, the juice from a plump thin skinned lemon and a sprinkling of golden caster sugar will do nicely, thank you.

      ETA: Chocolate spread recipe: #6 here: http://www.themix.org.uk/community/f...eekday-recipes

                Golden demerara caster sugar (Billington's is so lovely) is very good sprinkled on pancakes, with or without lemon juice. I could eat pancakes any day!

                  I used to ask my mum to make me pancakes every single day... when I was at nursery so probably 3 or 4. She always tells people that - and Iím just as routine obsessed now as I (apparently) was then.

                    I think it's impressive having such an obsession with your mum's pancakes because you know how wonderful they are, how great they taste. And how good you feel for eating them! This is miles better than obsessing about hating food and not eating it.

                    Perhaps you should enter the food industry. You already have an outstanding product: "Mum's Awesome Pancake Mix" or similar. Then patent the recipe and trademark its name.

                      I have 2 quite good chefs in my family (my mum is just a typical mum and my 18 year old sister is a professional chef in a restaurant)!!

                      I would... but the kitchen environment is really not for me - itís just too hot and stressful (and from what my sister tells me I definitely wouldnít do as well as she does).

                      Washing the dishes is enough for me. Oh and Micro Noodles. Iím the noodle chef in our house!!

                        I like mine covered in Oil and the Blood of innocent foreigners!

                        Oh wait sorry, I was channeling the spirit of neo-conservatism. I actually enjoy lemon juice and sugar, I am a man of simple pleasures.

                        Running my rig in a mighty high gear,
                        I don't care where I go, so long as it ain't here,
                        If something gets in my way, you know I'm gonna ram her,
                        Nobody fools around with this gear jammer.

                          You may never be a professional chef, but I reckon you can still make a good meal if need be and I love your enthusiasm, even for paaancakes!
