International day of consent

Today is international day of consent.

If you want to delve into all things consent-y around sexuality then check out Alex Iantaffi and my new book, How to Understand Your Sexuality.

For a bunch of my writings around consent, there’s my free book on consent.

To support young people learning more around consent, Justin Hancock‘s amazing BishUK website is one of the most respected and widely visited resources for sex and relationships education, advice, and information, and is now fully supported by Patreon. So please send some funds his way if you can, and check out other ways to offer your support. You can also still get the book Justin and I wrote about consensual sex, A Practical Guide to Sex.

The Consent Collective are currently on the road travelling around the UK, so do also follow them to see what they’re up to, and check out their amazing consent and trauma resources.

Meg-John Barker is the author of a number of popular books on sex, gender, and relationships, including Queer: A Graphic History, How To Understand Your Gender, Enjoy Sex (How, When, and IF You Want To), Rewriting the Rules, The Psychology of Sex, and The Secrets of Enduring Love. They have also written a number of books for scholars and counsellors on these topics, drawing on their own research and therapeutic practice.
