Consent Tea

This video, the content of which was developed by a feminist blogger who goes by the name of Rockstardinosaurpirateprincess, does an amazing job of describing the conditions under which consent to sexual activity can occur. In the video, tea is used as a metaphor for sexual activity and to that end, in the video the narrator goes through all of the various conditions that may or may not occur when one is asking another if they would like to drink tea (engage in sexual activity) and all of the various ways that the potential tea drinker (potential sexual partner) may respond.

This is an excellent resource to use in engaging students around what does or does not constitute consent. It is very short, very clear and makes it point quickly, yet emphatically. These are exactly the kinds of resources that should be used to engage students in a realistic discussion regarding consent to sexual activity.

(And remember, training sessions regarding the topic of sexual consent is now  required under Title Ix of the Education Act of 1972.)

It’s a quick, fun resource for students, as is the Rockstardinosaurpirateprincess blog, that discusses many facets of sexuality, in a way that is relevant to young people today.

Welcome to Our Blog!

Come on in and take a look around our blog! We have a number of resources for you to browse though regarding so many compliance issues that colleges and universities are struggling to implement, with regard to so many new requirements under Title IX of the Education Act of 1972 and the Campus SaVE Act.

When it comes to compliance issues, with regard to students, here are a list of the major laws that every college and university must have some degree of familiarity with:

Title IX of the Education Act of 1972;

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA);
