Move around the room staying as far away as possible from anyone else Start to move closer to people See how close you can get to different people Can you form a close group? How comfortable do you feel doing this? Are there any people who felt the need to move away as people got closer? Personal Space
Using the person outline, write all the qualities that you would want in an ideal partner You cannot state whether the person is male or female Does sex come up? How? In what context? The ideal partner
Each chair has a number on the back If I choose your number then you will be given a word You will state what the words means for you or what you understand by it Wider discussion Does everyone agree? Do we need to add anything to the meaning? Can we agree on a common understanding? What do we mean by…?
Participants have been given a statement Place it on the continuum between Easy and Difficult according to how easy you think it would be to talk about Discuss Change? How easy is it to talk to someone about…?
Everyone is given a cup with liquid in it and a scenario Read your scenario and behave as it says If the scenario says that you have sex with someone then you should both pour a little of your liquid into each other’s cup You will be told to stop after about 5 minutes The facilitator tests each person’s cup with a piece of litmus paper Reveal that only one cup was acidic (STI) at the start and now there are… Did it matter whether you slept with a lot of people or not? Did anyone try to talk about contraception or STIs with any of the partners? What does the activity demonstrate about the spread of STIs? What can you do to ensure that you don’t catch an STI? Mixing Fluids
In groups, take an object from the bag Answer the questions on your sheet Present your information to the class (presentations should be as interactive as possible and involve all members of the group) What’s in the bag?

Have a go at defining the terms “rape” and “sexual assault”. It’s harder than you think!!
Rape Penile penetration of the vagina, anus or mouth without consent without a reasonable belief in consent
Sexual Assault Intentionally touching another person sexually without that person’s consent without a reasonable belief in consent
Read through the following scenarios Discuss whether or not there is reasonable belief in consent What do you think a court would say? Why? So what is this reasonable belief in consent?
Sarah meets Tim in a bar lets him buy her drinks all night. Does Tim have a reasonable belief that she consents to having sex with him? Sarah went back to Tim’s house with him. Does Tim have a reasonable belief that she consents to having sex with him?
Sarah started kissing Tim and let him touch her breast and put his hand up her skirt. Does Tim have a reasonable belief that she consents to having sex with him?
Sarah started having sex with Tim but then changed her mind and told him to stop. Tim refused to stop until he was finished. Does Tim have a reasonable belief that she consents to having sex with him? Is this rape?
Tomiwa and her husband Kevin have been married for a year. They have had consensual sex lots of times… Tomiwa was tired and really didn’t want to have sex so said no. Kevin made her have sex anyway. One night, Kevin came home drunk when Tomiwa was asleep. He didn’t think she’d mind so started having sex with her while she was asleep.
Drunken Consent – Thinking points Does a man have a reasonable belief in consent if… 1)They are both drunk and s/he says yes. 2)They are both drunk and s/he says no. 3)S/he is very drunk but says yes, he is sober and knows how drunk s/he is. 4)S/he is so drunk that she is slurring her words. 5)S/he is so drunk that s/he passes out.
