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."

  • Going to court for drugs


    I got arrested on the 12/08/17 for one wrap of cocaine (no court slip yet) .. I then got arrested on the 26/08/17 with 4 wraps of cocaine and had to attend court early October. When I went I told them I got arrested before with it and that I've done it about 3 times in the past 4 months. I've even signed up to this recovery thing I have to attend in November.. After the hearing I got a £388 fine and expect to pay it this week. Today I recently revived another court hear ring for the one bag I got arrested for the first time, this was also the first time I've been arrested. I feel like due to it being my first offence with about half a gram is a little harsh, especially when I told the court I've done it 3 times in the past 4 months.. I really just want to move forward with my life now and move away from the drugs.. I've not touched then ever since I've been arrested but I feel like I can't even move forward with my life yet till it's over.. Anyone know what I'll get? It's my 2nd court hearing but this hearing was due to my first ever arrest. When he arrested me to to I told him I had the bag in my wallet before he searched it

    Hey there Totalnight, and welcome to the community.

    Just to say, we're not legal experts at The Mix and there may not be too much experience of these situations among those on our community. That said, I'd recommend visiting Release, who specialise in drink & drug law and information.

    How is everything going? How are you feeling about the situation?
    Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.
