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."

Global Warming? Maybe not as we are expecting...

  • Global Warming? Maybe not as we are expecting...

    In 30 year's time they say, Britain's summers could be like the south of France. By the end of the century, we could be as hot as Greece. This, they say, was what global warming could bring. But a growing number of scientists believe we could have our future climate completely wrong. This Horizon video (2003) reveals that a growing number of experts fear that Britain could be heading for a climate like Alaska. What I found most worrying is this video was published on You Tube in 2013, 10 years later, meaning we are already halfway though the decade the scientists have warned could bring. If they are right, our way of life that we are enjoying at present could dramatically and unexpectedly change within the next 10 years.

    The reason I have brought this topic for discussion is from meeting an old man in my village indoor market today. He endured the terrible winter of 1962 / 63 - and said it could happen next winter, or very soon. The more I thought about this, the more I realised that we'd be pitifully unprepared for such a brutal winter. As for our technology, we could kiss its effectiveness goodbye.

    Whilst I don't doubt but we've accelerated the change, I wouldn't worry - it's a natural cycle, caused by cow farts and volcanic eruption, amount other things. The next ice age would happen anyway - we've just bought it forward. To.e to adapt or die. Darwinism at its finest - but we'll be dead by then. Teach your children survival skills, and how to hunt/forage for food. That'd be my recommendation.

    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're absolutely right, and I my family and I have commenced learning survival skills thanks to a family friend who used to be a security officer and had trained with the US Marines. Foraging for food is no fun, but skills have to be learnt (she says while eating Bovril toast).
