In our podcasts we’ve been talking about how people can get better at consent, but what about people who practice deliberate non consent? What can we do?

We were asked by friend of ours and friend of the show Girl On The Net to come to Eroticon to have a discussion about how to give sex advice. So we did and we managed (just about) to record it.
On this week’s podcast we answered a question about how to deal with trauma responses on a hook up. A content note up front is that this episode does cover issues of sexual abuse/assault and trauma responses/PTSD. So if those things are live for you right now you might want to think about whether you want to listen or not. FYI we don’t go into any description of abuse or assault, we do have a bit more detail about possible trauma responses (fight, flight, and freeze) and what those can look like.
In this episode we explore how to go about having a hook up consensually, given that this has been in the headlines recently with the story about Aziz Ansari.

It’s Sexual Health Week this week and the focus here in the UK is on porn and how we can teach young people about it. Listen to us chat about whether porn is actually the sexual health issue that people often say it is and what the alternatives are.
This week we have a question (send yours via here, thanks) “If people do decide that that they want to learn to be “better” at sex… How would you advise a woman who has enjoyable sex with her (female) partners but would better like to learn how to have more reliable/reproducible orgasms. Solo and with a partner.”
