The Consexuality Project

The Consexuality Project began in 2002 and received its name from the two words "consent" and "sexuality."  Our assumption is that all sexual behavior should be based on mutual and fully informed consent.  Without consent, any sexual contact is considered to be sexual abuse or exploitation. 

While most people agree that sex should be consensual,  few can clearly define what "sexual consent" actually means and therefore cannot always determine whether certain behavior is consensual or not.  Hence, the all-too-common "He said, she said" debates. 

In response, The Consexuality Project was formed to develop educational tools for teaching consent and for promoting consent as a minimum standard for all sexual contact. 

Activities of  The Consexuality Project include a sex offender education program, workshops offered locally, nationally and even internationally, consultation and several educational tools that clearly explain the dividing line between sexual respect and sexual abuse.  Some of those tools are posted here on Ending The Violence's Website.

The logo (a red heart surrounding a handshake) symbolizes the belief that intimate relationships should be based on mutual respect between equals, including open communication and equal power sharing and decision making.
