Rev. Amanda and Lance talk about consent outside of the bedroom and sexual relationship. Consent plays out in all of the ways that we relate with the people in our lives.

If we are aware and present with the ways in which we expect and as others to participate in emotional labor in all of our interactions, we can learn to consciously consent and be enthusiastic about the ways we interact with each other beyond societal and historical models. How deeply fulfilling and rewarding would all of our relationships become if all the ways we connect with each other were met with an enthusiastic, Hell Yes!?
