We are going to practice basic consent and boundaries exercises – asking for permission to touch; saying ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘maybe’… learning to recognize a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ inside our own bodies. We’ll play with blindfolds. We’ll feel what it’s like when someone says ‘no’ to our request.
The goal is for all people to learn very basic but essential consent and boundaries skills. How to say YES, NO, THANK YOU and how to ask for consent. How to find our own boundaries. How to assert them gracefully. How to hear someone say ‘no’ without it causing distress. These are vital life skills that everyone should have and the effect of learning this extends beyond sexuality and into all aspects of life.
