RADICAL SEX AND CONSENT DAY: STARTING THE (SEXY) CONVERSATION

RADICAL SEX AND CONSENT DAY: STARTING THE (SEXY) CONVERSATION

4 September marked the USU’s inaugural Radical Sex and Consent Day. Conceived (pun intended) at the University of Melbourne to encourage the radical re-thinking and re-learning of sex education, student leaders of the USU saw the relevance of starting the same conversations at the University of Sydney.

Centering on the premise of making sex safer, more fun and more respectful, students braved the Eastern Avenue wind tunnel to join us at 'the Hot Box’ – the suitably named location for all of the Radical Sex and Consent Day events. The fun and games on offer, which ranged from throwing rings on a dildo (no easy feat), a sexy scavenger hunt and blindfolded lube tasting, all highlighted the significance of facilitating the normalisation of the sex and consent conversation.

Other important events taught wom*n about self-defence and how to protect their personal safety in intimidating situations. The packed out event 'Sex and Consent: Let’s Talk', got students talking about sex, consent and gender with panellists including the Dolly Doctor; Norrie, Sydney’s first legally recognised gender-neutral resident, and representatives from the Sex Workers Union, Scarlett Alliance, and the Disability Sex Workers Charity, Touching Base.

As the Radical Sex and Consent Day buzz spread around campus, students packed out the Physiology of Pleasure & Kink Workshop facilitated by Sydney Sex Therapist Tanya Koens, and Ass Class, affectionately titled Anal Sex 101, which went back to the basics about all things anal sex and discussed techniques to help make it the most enjoyable and sexy experience.

The USU is incredibly proud to have been involved in starting positive conversations about sex and consent on campus and introducing the student community, of all genders and sexualities, how to have enjoyable, safe sex.
