Curated by Doris editor Cindy Crabb, Learning Good Consent looks at the culture of sexual consent from a standpoint both sexy and educational. Over the course of 46 pages, Cindy and friends create a well-rounded consent workshop, with all sites set on healing and helping. In a world of shady abusers, demonized victims, and one-sided dating rituals, Consent has your back. As says Cindy in the zine's intro, "Talking about our experiences with consent, our struggles, our mistakes and how we've learned, these are part of a much larger revolutionary struggle."

About the Author:

Cindy Crabb is the author of the zines Doris and Support. She lives in Athens, Ohio.


"With a front cover cartoon of two young folks earnestly chatting out on a dock, the zine resembles a pamphlet you'd pick up in your junior high guidance counselor's office, only this offers powerful, complicated information (instead of shallow questions and uncomplicated answers): how to be clear and direct when you communicate what you want and don't want. This collection of stories, narratives, quizzes, and questionnaires shows what consent looks, sounds, feels, and tastes like, for the consentor and consentee. ... Learning Good Consent is packed with resources: reference URLs throughout, plus a list of books, Web sites, and zines on the inside of the back cover."  —Make/Shift Magazine

"Learning Good Consent is more of an educational tool than a zine to be read for entertainment, although any good zine should teach you something. The intent of this zine (issued along with Crabb's publication Support dealing with domestic abuse) is to educate people—gay, straight or bi—on what the boundaries are in sexual relationships in terms of consent. Contained within are various essays of personal experiences by a host of different writers as well as lists of questions designed to help the reader better understand what constitutes sexual consent. No means no always, but other things can mean no as well. Nothing is ever in black and white (ok, the pages of this publication are printed in black and white), and there can be gray areas to consent. Crabb and collaborators seeks to help define those gray areas and hopefully change peoples' attitudes about sex and sexuality."  — Reglar Wiglar
