What is being "Consent-Conscious"?
Being #ConsentConscious is the first step to reducing harm and sexual violence.
I'm committed to:
Being in a practice of exchanging and honoring consent.
Creating, accepting, and respecting boundaries as a method of SAFETY.
Acknowledging the powers dynamics that silence survivors
Being a practice of self-exploration and healing to expand my connection to PLEASURE
Establishing consent without the presence of force, coercion, or manipulation
Only establishing consent when all parties are of sound mind and AWARENESS
Having awareness that intimacy is a privilege, not an absolute.
Understanding that consent is ongoing, requires healthy COMMUNICATION and can be revoked at any time.
Understanding that "enthusiast consent" looks different for everyone.
Recognizing I have the potential to cause harm and I move EMPATHY-centered accountability.
