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."

  • Show me your tattoos

    So 1) Im looking for some inspiration as I want to get another tattoo. So please feel free to show me what you have and also I thought I would like to pay tributes to Amy Bleuel by showing our semicolans (if you have one, I'de like to see them) who died by successful suicide at age 31. To show "my story isnt over" from a reader "a pause between two main clauses. Surviving and impending suicide".

    I'll start this is my semicolan. I have 4 other tattoos aswell.

    My tattoo is a moon, it is to remind me of my late nana who would often say to me "I love you to the moon and back". I'd love to in the future, get her's and my grandad's writing on me somewhere.

        Hey Lostsense.

        I dont have any tattoos, but I love how meaningful tattoos can be, especially something like the semicolon which can be so small and simple but mean so much. Wish i could contribute to the pictures in this thread, but since I can't, i really enjoy learning the stories behind other people's tattoos. Thanks for starting this thread
