How negotiating sex is not the same as negotiating tea..... l'd love to start a conversation around how negotiating sex is far more complicated than negotiating a cup of tea. For example, there have been few times in my life where I have been able to say "Thank you for offering me sex, I actually just had sex about 10 minutes ago so I think I'll pass. Maybe we can meet for sex next tuesday, hows noon?" The reason why I highlight this is that oversimplification can make complex things easier to understand, however in doing so we also loose a lot of the nuances of the complexity. Negotiating sex is much more complicated than negotiating tea because we usually use euphemisms and body language to request or deny sex opposed to to the plethora of very polite pleases and thank-yous we are accustomed to in every day language. Have you every said "It would be my pleasure if I could offer you some sex" "Would you prefer to have oral or penetrative?" "I'm in a touch of a hurry, so I may finish before you do and have to jet off". Using Tea to help explain consent is a brilliant idea! Negotiating consent and sex through the same tea analogy seems to fall short.
If we want our children to love and accept themselves for who they are we need love and respect ourselves for who we are! A simple 1 minute meditation. Look in the mirror and say to yourself 1)"I love myself" 2)"I will not give up" 3)"I will not give in" Try this for 30 days.
