The Zine: http://www.phillyspissed.net/sites/de...

It's been a long time since I revisited how I deal with consent, especially sexual consent.


I date plenty of folks who don't have an extensive sexual background, or who date normies with no consent training, or who date people who just aren't comfortable talking about and during sex. I think I used to be that way, though it was a long time ago, back when I believed that a partner would fix me, would know just what to do so I didn't have to commun

this zine was recommended to me by a date and it totally changed how I was approaching being an ally to other survivors. I would advise anyone to read it in a heartbeat, though it may be tough on the eyes there is some small small type up in there.

Recommends it for: everyone. really. whether you read it in solidarity or because you're there, please read it.
This is the zine I most often recommend.

It is for people who have survived assault and abuse, and for people who know or will know a survivor. That's all of us.

Please read this, it'll make you a better lover, stronger friend, and help you heal.

I think this is the most helpful and important zine/book I've found on supporting survivors. I would recommend it to absolutely everyone.

very zine-ey, but it works so well for such an unfinished topic. same with that other zine, learning good consent. made me think about stuff i'd otherwise gloss over in life.

I have used this zine countless times, passed it on to friends, and even used it to make packets for a skillshare/discussion group I did years back.

I love it!!!!!!
