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."

      yep a little bit of toothpaste before you go to bed and in the morning, but check that it has not left a white mark before you go out, if it has just rise off.
      Good things come to those who wait....God it must be my turn now??!

      There is always light at the end of the tunnel its just the length of the tunnel that changes.

        surgical spirit. You can get little bottles of it from superdrug or boots for under a quid. It dries spots out almost overnight usually for me or a couple of days max if its a big one. Its pretty harsh on the skin though so dont use it all the time but for an emergency its fabulous. Just dab it on with cotton wool as often as you like.

          Ahhhh thanks guys. I think I shall buy a bottle of this tomorrow when I'm in town. I will use the toothpaste trick overnight although when I've done it before it hasn't really worked. I have to get rid of this for Monday! Gah. I always come out in spots when I'm stressed.

            Dont bother with the toothpaste, i did that and it dried my skin out and i ended up with a huge red scaly peeling patch which looked worse than the original spot

              Use a cream/gel with 2% salaic (whatever) acid during the day and at bed (when nobody is around put an antibiotic cream on it and cover it with a bandaid.
              Don't pick/pop at it and risk a scabbing though.

              Of all the mistakes you've made, the best are yet to come.

                  Well I've taken a risk. I've put toothpaste on my face *giggles* We'll see if it goes down eh?

                  If not, I'm going to buy some surgical spirit tomorrow.

                    I'd pop it, but that's just me (and I'm a bad example).

                    Perfume (or yes, any alcohol-based product) will dry it out and I've done that before with fair success. Fair warning, it stings like a bitch.

                    I'd also recommend a product Boots and a lot of other folks do...Boots' used to be called ACT spot reducing agent or similar, but Tesco do an own brand too iirc. It's this gel that you plop on the offending spot (overnight is best, I reckon) and it's decent, though I haven't used it for a while. Hope it still exists!

                      Is it just me or does anyone else have a weird fascination with popping spots?

                      Sounds disgusting but the satisfaction you get from it

                        arghghhgh. My mother. And since she doesn't have any of her own she tends to try and attack mine..
                        If you've lost your faith in love and music, oh the end won't be too long..

                        The tea and coffee making facilities left alot to be desired..

                          If popping spots is weird then I wouldn't want to be normal.

                          I'm a menace if someone's got a big shiny spot that's ripe for a squeezing, I must make so many people feel like shit...I just can't tear my eyes away..
