Consent is an important topic to learn about and there is always more to learn. We continue to define what consent means to us and each other. There are also a lot of different situations that have never really been modeled for people. The purpose of the Consent Made Simple series is to provide examples of positive examples of consent being properly observed from a variety of different situations and viewpoints. These scenarios apply to any person of any gender.
In this episode, we have a couple sitting on a bed at home. One person wants to expand their experience so they ask their partner if they have any interest in checking out a fetish club. As it turns out, their partner has actually been to such events before and enjoyed them. They agree to check it out together.
We never know what our partner will be open to until we ask. Keeping communication open is a good way to ensure that the relationship stays on solid ground. It also makes it easier for us to open up and talk about things we wish to explore but may be nervous about bringing up.
