36 Practice: From #MeToo to #WeConsent with adrienne maree brown

This practice from adrienne maree brown is for liberating the language of desire and cultivating consent. These skills are central for us to access pleasure, boundaries, right relationship, and justice in ways that the #MeToo movement is asking us to examine more deeply.

This practice focuses on the realm of sexuality (NSFW - depending on your work), but these skills can and must be applied across all realms of our lives. Join us in practicing saying "No" as a complete sentence, "Not now," and "I want."

If you are following along in the book Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good, you can find these practices on pages 195 and 229. Get your copy now from with code PODCAST for 15% off!

adrienne maree brown is a sci-fi/Octavia Butler scholar and author of Octavia's Brood, Emergent Strategy, and the recent New York Times Bestseller Pleasure Activism. She's a facilitator and doula living in Detroit, and you can hear her on the podcast she creates with her sister Autumn called How to Survive the End of the World.

adrienne spoke with us on last week's episode along with Amita Swadhin about "making justice the most pleasurable experience humans can have." We learned about what pleasure has to do with our movements, pleasure after childhood sexual abuse and other experiences of harm, why we can be suspicious of pleasure sometimes, and activist culture’s “commitment to suffering.” Give it a listen to join the conversation.
