Outline of the course

The course structure is dead simple.

1. What is consent?

Here you will get a better understanding of what consent actually means.

2. Myths busted

There is probably no topic in human life where there is so much ignorance, myths and half-knowledge as in sex. We have put together four lists of 12 myths each. Can you bust them all?

3. Checklist

So how does consent actually look like? We have put together a list of possible signs (including moans and deep breahing- get thrilled) that help you to spot consent - and NON-consent. This will help you to understand your partner better.

(Secret hint from our team: this is a skill very much appreciated by all our sex partners!)

4. Resources
