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."

  • About this forum (Creative)

    This corner of the forum to allow people to express themselves. That could mean poetry, scribblings, whole novels, music, art, film - whatever you've created yourself.

    And that's the main point, this is about what you've created. It can be an online portfolio with no feedback, a chance to check something specific or your opportunity to throw your stuff out to everyone to feedback on.

    This can also be a place to discuss being creative, the websites, tools and advice that can help.

    Like everything else on the boards it's best to assume that if you don't say how you want feedback then people should be free to respond about anything in your work.

    If you'd like to be more specific (I just want to post this, I'm not looking for feedback; I just want help with the 3rd paragraph) then just let people know when you post.

    A few specifics -

    The normal rules of the boards apply - racist, sexist, etc, material wouldn't be acceptable. That doesn't mean that these ideas can't be explored but this isn't a way around normal rules.

    Don't insult people - this is a chance for people to feedback to other users, to entertain each other and to hopefully grow in confidence. Don't be a twat.

    Don't steal - A couple of things about copyright - The basic rules of the forum state we own everything published. That's required as a publisher. But we don't own your work and wouldn't pass it on as our own. That applies to everyone else as well - don't be stealing other's work and publishing it here and don't nick other people's work from here for other projects. Anyone doing that won't be here for very long.

    Report things you're not happy about - you can familiarise yourself with our report post functionality here

    So, have fun, help each other out and we'll all look forward to seeing what you come up with
    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.
