Consent is about being able to listen and to respect one and another, and it’s necessary for any types of relationship, play, artistic collaboration and especially necessary in BDSM. It’s as well a very useful skill in common life to develop happy and healthy relationships.
In the last years we have been confronted more and more on discussion about Consent.
Movements like #Me too and “Ni Una Menos” have brought to collective attention that our societies might have been based, until now, on archaic values, where predatory & abusive behaviours, inequality and privilege were norms: the common dynamic between any kind of relationships and especially between men and women.
Religions, states and institution try to define and control the way people live their own life and a lot of prejudices and taboos still exist around the sexual body and the desire of some to live a free sexuality. We have all been raised in a “sex negative“ society, where “sex“ is a weapon of warfare, the way power affirms itself and controls social interactions, a fundamental marketing tool and the content of an ever-growing industry.
