CV meeting 10/5: Consent with yandy!

Hi everyone,

We're having another exciting class today from 8 to 10pm in Hamilton 509! Here's a map. The weather will be about 60F (15C), dry and not too windy. It might be cold in the room as Columbia's heating isn't on yet, so bring additional layers.

Here's the class description: 

This interactive workshop familiarizes the audience with various theories and models of consent practice as they apply to any type of sexual, BDSM, or intimate interaction. Attendees will leave the workshop with clear and concise working models of a consent practice that is more nuanced than the traditional "no means no" or "yes means yes" frameworks, as well as concrete strategies for, and interactive practice in, applying these models to their own lives and sexual interactions.

More details and RSVP:

Hope to see you there!

CV Meeting 9/21: First Meeting!

This meeting will take place today, Monday 9/21, from 8PM to 10PM, on Columbia's campus, Hamilton 411. Helps to have a map. This is a one-time location; future meetings will probably take place elsewhere.

This is our first meeting of the year! To kick things off, we'll talk a bit about CV and some of the more interesting classes that we're going to have this year, as well as give you a chance to tell us what you'd like to see!

We're also going to talk about cool kink events in the city that are worth checking out, plus some resources.

We'll clarify some of the more esoteric lingo that kinky people have, touch on some tips in negotiating a scene, and do a number of fun consent exercises that will help you more confidently say no!

This is a chance to take part in a meet and greet and, time permitting, share some cool stories!

Check out our new website (all meeting announcements will show up there as well!):

Hope to see you all there!

We're still migrating

Hi everyone! We're slowly putting the content back up but in the meanwhile, some FAQ:

When is the next meeting? Monday, 9/21, 8-10pm, probably in Hamilton. We'll be sending out an e-mail and we'll make a post here when we have more details about the location. We're going to talk about how to negotiate a scene, we'll do some (fun!) interactive consent workshops and you'll have a chance to tell us what you'd like to see at CV.

How do I best keep updated? Here, as well as the FetLife group, and the mailing list.
