Our thanks to Paul F for this, and several tips of the hat to Ben Froughi. An extract:
One consent class saw a quarter of freshers walk out in disgust and handfuls walked out of several of the others.
Campus activist Ben Froughi, 23, a third-year accounting student, stood outside some of the sessions handing out fliers and encouraging students to boycott the talks if they disagreed with them.
‘Consent talks are patronising,’ he said. ‘If students really need lessons in how to say yes or no then they should not be at university.
‘There is no correct way to negotiate getting someone into bed with you. In suggesting that there is, consent talks encourage women to interpret sexual experiences that have not been preceded by a lengthy, formal and sober contractual discussion as rape.
‘Consent talks propagate the backward message that all women are potential victims and all men potential rapists.’
