This zine is based off a workshop that was presented at Idapalooza 2013. Boundaries are often context-based, and we felt that talking about consent can look different in spaces that are sweaty, rowdy, in which there is substance use, and / or in which “hooking up” is a social norm. This is a workshop / workbook zine that can be conducted either alone or with a group. It is specifically written for those who have already made the decision to enter a sexy, party space (a gay bar, a queer dance night, a house party, a play party, a festival such as Idapalooza) with the idea that participants will be witnesses to PDA, drinking, and probably more. However, the workshop / workbook can easily be tailored to other settings & we believe that many folks can benefit from these activities. Topics covered in this workshop / workbook zine include (but are not limited to): re-defining sex & sex positivity, reflecting upon what party settings feel safe & unsafe, boundary setting activities, communication (verbal & non-verbal, during & outside of sex), consent & communication as in pertains to bdsm & kink, boundaries pertaining to substance use, accountability, responding to issues of boundary crossing. 24 pgs/ b&w / text heavy

Anti-copyright, re-blog to spread the word!
I’m really glad this is making the rounds, I’m re-blogging because zinelibrary isn’t publishing new content & I want this to exist as a public resource for anybody who can use it.
