I must admit that all of the conversations around “consent” regarding sex have had me bewildered. It just doesn’t seem like such a complicated idea. If someone is not saying “yes”, that would seem pretty straight-forward. Well clearly Craig Carillo, the producer of this 3 minute video Understand Consent With the Help of Stick Figures and a Cup of Tea is with me on this. I thought this video was hysterical and perfect. Pass it along. Because in the end, isn’t a cup of tea exactly like sex?
