Cindy Crabb provides a DIY tour of the promise and perils of sexual relationships in Learning Good Consent. Building ethical relationships is one of the most important things we can do, but sex, consent, abuse, and support can get complicated. This collection is an indispensable guide to both preventing sexual violence and helping its survivors to heal. Includes a foreword by Kiyomi Fujikawa and Jenna Peters-Golden.

Whether or not you think you need it, whether or not you’re a survivor, or dating a survivor, or even having sex, you would probably benefit from reading this book. And the people you choose to be intimate with will probably thank you for making their safety a priority.” -Nomy Lamm, Feminist Review

Learning Good Consent offers powerful, complicated information (instead of shallow questions and uncomplicated answers). This book speaks to those who are unlearning silence as a safety/communication strategy.” -Jen Cross, make/shift

Essential reading.” -Colin Atrophy Hagendorf, author of Slice Harvester

What this book does is to stress consent: not no means no,’ or even yes means yes,’ but Do you want me to stay here with you?’ Are you here?’ I thought I wanted this, but I’m not sure now.’ Do you think we should take this farther?’ I’m moved that this book is here. It matters.” -Alison Piepmeier, author of Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism
