Podcast Description:

Natasha Helfer Parker interviews Dr. Doug Braun-Harvey for part one in a 6-part series they are creating to discuss the sexual principles of healthy sexuality developed by the World Health Organization.

thi_dbh_photoThe first principle of consent is discussed in length and detail. Many assume this is a simple concept, and yet we see in much of our national discussion today, that it’s much more complicated than we’ve assumed in the past. This is a principle the majority of people agree with regardless of culture, race, socio-economic status, gender, etc. And yet it goes profoundly wrong on a regular basis as we can see by the #metoo movement with so many sharing publicly (often for the first time) where they were involved with sexual encounters that were non-consensual. Such an important conversation with implications for ourselves, for our children, for our relationships and for our communities.
