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."

  • Get Involved

    Hey everyone,

    We've got some exciting opportunities on both chat and the boards for you to get involved in. Here's some of the opportunities we have at the moment:

    General Chat
    On Tuesdays, we've set up a new type of General Chat where you can host a section of the chat about anything you'd like, such as a themed chat, a game, watch along, activity or quiz (any ideas you have are welcome too!).

    Community Newsletter
    Each month we put together a newsletter to post on the discussion boards. We're always looking for people to get involved, whether it's an idea, submitting a poem, photo or even writing your own article. Let us know what you'd like to do, we'd love to have you involved.

    Weekly Challenge
    Each week we post a weekly challenge on the discussion boards for everyone to get involved in. So far challenges have involved origami, messy crafts, learning new words and photography. We're always looking for idea's for the weekly challenges so if you have any, we'd love to hear them!

    We'd love to have you involved, if you're interested, sign up using the form below. If you have any questions about anything at all, feel free to send us a PM
