What Mathilde Capone has failed to realise is: Consent is enshrined in law.
Statue gives a clear definition. Consent is continuous, meaning that at any time it can be withdrawn...and that includes during intercourse. If you say 'stop' [or whatever] and they don't 'stop' - then the act becomes assault and/or rape.
So...if you want to waste 75 minutes of your life listening to other people's definition and opinions...regrading 'consent' - then, waste away.
To make it even less interesting...there are also a couple of fox puppets to demonstrate the naughty bits...and, way too many terrible songs.
Seriously: Who was this made for?!?
What if lesbo-queer communities had something to share about the singularities of their sexualities? Through the complex topic of consent, sixteen protagonists from these communities speak up. Could there be blurred lines, a continuum between consent and aggression? How can we defeat rape culture and innovate in matters of consent? How has the notion of aggression been used historically to exclude trans women? In a deep introspection of their intimacies, these protagonists ask questions, get angry, laugh, create other possibilities. They suggest to look more closely at consent, from the experience of their marginalized communities, their subcultures and their explorations.
