I was really looking forward to this show. I heard Tanille speak at an event earlier this year and I really enjoyed her no nonsense enthusiastic approach to talking about consent. I have to admit that the idea of always getting consent sounded a bit of a downer, but not the way Tanille walks about it! These are some of the things we talked about:
- Enthusiastic consent
- Who is responsible for consent?
- Multi-levels of cues around consent
- How to make consent sexy
- Disposability of new age dating
- Yes to a safe word but what about having a GO word?
- Difference between need and want

My challenge to you is to start to understand your own desires and then clearly communicate them with others to match up mutual needs. Take responsibility for your part in your happiness, body and consent.
