Learning Good Consent: Building Ethical Relationships in a Complicated World
Curated by Doris editor Cindy Crabb, Learning Good Consent looks at the culture of sexual consent from a standpoint both sexy and educational. Over the course of 46 pages, Cindy and friends create a well-rounded consent workshop, with all sites set on healing and helping. In a world of shady abusers, demonized victims, and one-sided dating rituals, Consent has your back. As says Cindy in the zine's intro, Talking about our experiences with consent, our struggles, our mistakes and how we've learned, these are part of a much larger revolutionary struggle.
What this book does is to stress consent: not no means no, or even yes means yes, but Do you want me to stay here with you? Are you here? I thought I wanted this, but I m not sure now. Do you think we should take this farther? I m moved that this book is here. It matters. -Alison Piepmeier, author of Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism
Whether or not you think you need it, whether or not you re a survivor, or dating a survivor, or even having sex, you would probably benefit from reading this book. And the people you choose to be intimate with will probably thank you for making their safety a priority. -Nomy Lamm, Feminist Review
