Imagine a world where women all over the world felt safe going on dates with men. That may feel like a pipedreams, but the consent to kiss (CTK) campaign aims to reduce sexual violations from forced kisses and worse by hundreds of millions. We can do this by changing social norms, and starting the start of consent dialog one step earlier than the bedroom. Let's let women state on their online dating profiles that they expect to be asked for consent with the letters "ctk". Let's show our children and the world sexy examples of men respecting asking for consent, so that we might end this idea that any man can grab a woman's head for a kiss without any warning or consent or repercussions. This book challenges the social norms put in place by film, tv and other media and shows there is another way.
Inside this book you will find new research on unwanted kisses and so much more. Lyuba Venable and Dr Andrew Noske delve deep into the actional steps needed for the CTK campaign to change the world, and go deep into conversations about consent, masculinity, femininity, safe sex and the challenging of gender stereotypes. Regardless of your gender and sexual preference identity, this book will open your eyes to new possibilities in dating culture that will inspire you to date better and help us take the MeToo movement to the next logical level - from talking about the past into the realm of preventing sexual violation - with a very simple idea. #ctk.
