Consent: It Takes A Village

Carol Queen, Robert Morgan Lawrence #cconconsent CatalystCon East - March 16, 2014


  1. We talk up consent all the time, especially in kinky community, but at the same time erotic materials (from which plenty of people still get inspiration and ideas about sex) often show play without negotiation or clear consent. Bitter arguments about whether people play consensually, or certain incidents were consensual, rage — and communities are having a hard time dealing with them. Robert and Carol have seen these scenarios for 25 years now, and will share some history, some thoughts about getting to informed consent, and welcome your thoughts and brainstorming about how to handle coercive problem players and uninformed kids in the candy store, helping to strengthen a sexual culture of passionate play and respect for limits.
