SEX POSITIVE COMMUNITY RESOURCES
Temple Scarlet is dedicated to education and service even beyond our events. We strive to guide our community to all sorts of resources that can help them along their sacred sexuality journey.
Because we are based in the Kansas City area, many of the resources listed are local.
If you want to recommend a resource that we should list, or notice that a listing on this page needs updated, please contact us!
At the 2019 Temple Scarlet Retreat we taught the basics of consent using the "tea" analogy. The video below is a great place to start.
At Temple Scarlet events, we expand upon the concept of consent in our rules and guidelines. With continuous consent education beyond the basics, we can create an exceptionally safe space where intimacy thrives. Feel free to make use of our guidelines...
Holistic consent: Attendees should be aware and receptive of the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual boundaries of other people, and, always respect those boundaries by forming clear verbal and/or written agreements with other people before taking any actions which will affect others
Active consent: Attendees should continuously be checking with each other for expressions of agreement and enthusiasm, and, should cease the behaviors they are engaging if another person expresses discomfort, disinterest, or is non-reactive
Self Responsibility: Attendees must strive to honestly openly and clearly communicate their own concerns and boundaries to the best of their ability, utilize the physical and emotional safety measures provided, and follow the written process for complaints and or allegations
WHAT CONSENT LOOKS LIKE
The good folks of helpingsurviovors.org offer even more detailed information on the core elements of consent, what consent is and isn't, consent limitations, and information about sexual assault. A helpful resource for educators and community members!
