For our first On Mondays We Kink, we talk about consent and how it matters at every stage of the kink journey.
I share the story of Simon, a man who tried to bribe his way into our party on the weekend rather than provide me with a phone number.
I use this case study to look a t the need for consent to be consent, clear and visible.
And this is his remarkable email:
I follow rules and hope you reconsider.
It’s that I’m not in an open relationship and need my privacy.
So good you need to share it?

She is the author of Snakes and Ladders: a memoir and host of the Deboning Power Podcast.
A writer, thinker and yeller, Angela Williams is mildly notorious for seeing problems and pointing them out. She’s tussled with Fred Nile in the Sydney Morning Herald, taken academia to task in the Guardian’s Anonymous Academic, gone to Crikey about the treatment of mentally ill women in prison, and most recently blown the whistle on dangerous risks in her (former) charity workplace. Angela does one thing really well – find problems and yell about them.
