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."

  • Whatís up people ✌️

    Hello fellow humans 😎

    As someone with social anxiety, Iíve never been able to loosen up in person and show off my true self, so I thought Iíd give this site a go to speak to other people without the kind of pressure Iíd sense in reality.

    Just to give a bit of info about me, my name is Nathan and Iím a 19 year old guy who is completely unsure of what path to take in life. I endured a tough past in secondary school which I have never been able to get over completely, as it shows now. Despite that I love to speak to new people but my anxiety is always lurking there waiting to eat up any rays of positivity a lot of the time.

    Now as someone who worries to the extent of something as small as adding someone on Instagram or Facebook, even posting here was giving me doubts! Iíd like to prove to myself that itís ok to socialise with people.

    Anyways, just for a bit of fun to begin with hit me up with any kind of questions! Ask me about my free time, my life, what Iím going through, whatever your curiosity can come up with (keep it clean tho pls &#128518.

    Once again, hello community 😎
