It’s time for another “The” episode—this time about Consent. Geek Girl Riot gets into the dos and don’ts and different types of consent.

How our Culture has Traditionally Subverted Consent
We can’t believe it’s 2020 and we’re still having to have this conversation: Consent from all parties is required when performing any kind of sexual act. Sherin, Soma, Philip, Renee, and Mo are joined by Metal DNA host Shawn Kupfer to talk about the ways pop culture, politics, and society in general have subverted an issue that should be clear cut.

What is Consent and How Many Forms Does it Have?
Our Rioters break down the differences between Informed Consent, Explicit Consent, Implied Consent, Active and Passive Consent, and Sexual Deceit.

The Joy of Consent
Not only is consent a required part of sexual relationships, it can also be an incredibly fun part of it. From kinks to role-play, dirty talk to wrestling, our Rioters dig into the ways explicit and active consent make the fun funner.
