The Consent Guidebook: A Practical Approach to Consensual, Respectful, and Enthusiastic Interactions based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Got consent? This short book establishes an excellent overview on consent - what it is, why we need it, how to practice it, and even what to do if we are violated or have violated another person. Disclaimer: I'm personally acquainted with the author and contributed to the funding for the first run of this book. Even if I didn't know the author, however, I would recommend that EVERYONE buy a copy of this book and refer to it often. Our culture has taught us to "be nice" or, alternatively, to "take what you can get," whether that hurts others or not. We need to unpack that mindset and learn to practice consent and checking in with ourselves. It's a small, short book; this may be a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on your expectations. There are wonderful illustrations that are really fun, as well as great quotes from a number of consent experts and sexuality educators. Everyone who wants to deal with other humans ethically and mindfully should pick up a copy.
