Consent is conceptually simple but complex in practice. It’s about more than just a ‘yes’ or ‘no’, it’s about celebrating each other and creating safety for connection.

Consent in BDSM has even more moving parts. How do we know what we’re do to/for each other is really consensual. How do we talk about things that outside of scene would not be ok? How do negotiate appropriately and in enough detail to make sure that things are consensual before we start? And how do we check in during a scene to make sure things stay good all the way through?

Are you interested in answering these questions and more? Join a group of people who want to create a safer and more passionate world. This three hour workshop will look at how we can strive to include consensual practices in all parts of our lives, how to negotiate and check-in to make sure consent is happening, and how we talk about this complicated topic. We’ll have discussions, information, and practice sessions. Whether you’ve been around the scene for a while or are new to being kinky, we’ll have something for you.

About the Educator:
The Consent Academy is a group of dedicated educators and activists who provide quality consent training and consultations. We have come together to promote Consent Culture through education, speaking out, and supporting organizations that want to do better. We talk a lot about consent and consensual activity. It’s the cornerstone of what we teach and who we are. And while that is easy to say, we know that living a dedication to consent takes work, awareness, and a willingness to engage.
