Talking consent over a cup of tea

  Posted on: November 3, 2016

consent tea 2015

Visitors enjoy tea while discussing topics of sexual consent and related issues during last year's Consent Tea.

The following article about the Wellness Centre’s upcoming Consent Tea event appeared in the Nov. 1, 2016 online edition of University Affairs.

 

The Wellness Centre is hosting a tea party, but don’t expect your grandmother’s scone-and-clotted-cream affair. For starters, the party games all revolve around sex.

Wellness coordinator Chelsea Corsi found her inspiration for a tea-time talk on sexual consent thanks to a viral video. Tea and Consent, a three-minute animated video, aiming to clarify the issue of sexual consent by comparing it to having a cup of tea.

In the video, the narrator says:

“If you say, ‘Hey, would you like a cup of tea,’ and they say, ‘Uh, you know, I’m not really sure,’ then you can make them a cup of tea, or not, but be aware they might not drink it. And if they don’t drink it then – and this is the important part – don’t make them drink it.”
