Welcome to my virtual therapy room! I am Dr Lori Beth Bisbey and this is Sex Spoken Here. Remember that this podcast deals with adult themes so if you don’t have privacy you might wish to put on your headphones.
Today I am starting my series on risk assessment in relationships with the topic of consent. Consent is the foundation for all sexual agreements and relationships. Some feel the current emphasis on consent is too intense and make fun of the idea of having to ask for permission each step of the way in a sexual encounter. Others feel that we don’t take consent seriously and we make too many assumptions.
