Collaborative Consent: Pursuing Pleasure While Reducing Risk - Darren Campbell

Good sex and play result from connection and communication. But how do we share our desires and create consent with our partners while keeping it sexy? How do we push past the awkward and have fun while negotiating? In this class, Darren will guide students through a collaborative approach to consent that emphasizes mutual connection and responsibility for consent in a scene. Particular emphasis is given to the possibilities inherent in unencumbered and risk-aware consent and reducing and understanding risk. The class also includes an in-depth discussion of non-transactional models of consent and negotiation, discussing the benefits on both an individual level and for a wider community interested in reducing harm.
