Radical Consent - Kassandra Brown

Too many of us think we can either have hot spontaneous intimacy (that may turn into rape, pregnancy, or STDs) or clear, consensual communication (that’s safe but B-o-r-i-n-g). In this workshop with laughter, tears, and experiential exercises we’ll learn:

  • What consent is and what it isn’t

  • How to be hot, sexy, spontaneous and safe

  • How to find and honor your inner yes, no, maybe, and (most importantly) “I changed my mind”

You'll leave with a roadmap for creating the hottest, safest, sexiest relationships you've ever had.
This workshop will feature the Wheel of Consent, developed by Betty Martin. Why is consent the key? With consent, anything that two (or more) adults agree to do no matter how kinky or unusual is great. Without consent, anything that one person does with another is potentially abusive no matter how mundane or normal the action.
The presentation will include:

  • When is consent invalid (drunk, high, aroused, etc)

  • How to use the Wheel of Consent in different relationships

  • Language to make consent both sexy and matter-of-fact

  • Partner and small group exercises to practice:

  • Asking for what you want

  • Setting boundaries and keeping them

  • Giving and receiving touch

Kassandra Brown, Professional Cuddler, Coach, and Educator, I believe that consensual touch has the power to change the world and create a kind yet powerful revolution. My work has taken me into being a yoga and meditation teacher, a homebirthing mom, the founder of ParentCoaching.org, a member of Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, a somatic sex educator, and now a Cuddlist. I love distilling my vast experiences into simple tools that uplift my clients’, friends’, and family’s lives enabling them to connect more deeply with each other, themselves, and the earth.
