Little is known about Our Lady of Grackles, despite a surprisingly large worship spread throughout the Gearworld, and occasionally even diffusing into worlds adjacent. Her origins are mysterious. There are a great many stories put forward as to those origins—most of them are lies, and all of them are wrong. What is known conclusively is that she is always hooded, usually naked, and only trustworthy if you are in danger. She does not speak—anyone who claims to have heard her voice is also lying—but the faithful claim that sometimes, in the dark, they can hear wings.  - Ursula Vernon

I'm collaborating with a few people to put on an event about consent at my school. How can we talk about consent when alcohol gets mixed in? I feel like saying "if anyone has had anything to drink, don't have sex because they can't consent" is pretty restrictive/unrealistic and kind of kills the dialog, but I definitely don't want to give off a message that alcohol is an unimportant factor in determining whether someone can consent. Any thoughts on how to strike a balance?

pervocracy:

I’m not sure I have a single cohesive opinion on this, but I have some bullet points:

  • I don’t know about the zero-alcohol rule either, because I’ll have a beer with dinner and have sex afterwards, and I certainly feel entirely in control of that.  However, some people do feel significantly altered by just one beer.
  • If you don’t know a person very well, you don’t know how alcohol affects them, and you don’t know their usual sexual limits. Some people can seem relatively lucid when they’re really not.  So having sex with someone you don’t know well who’s been drinking is particularly risky.
  • If someone’s drunk to where you wouldn’t feel comfortable with them deciding to drive or to sign a contract, they’re too drunk.
  • If you feel like “this is your chance” because they’ve had a few drinks and “loosened up” that is bad bad bad bad.  That is another phrasing of “they wouldn’t normally agree to this.”
  • There’s always morning sex.  Or “next time I see you” sex.  If they’re really attracted to you, they’ll still be attracted to you when they sober up. 
  • If you’re drunk, you’re not in a good position to judge someone else’s consent and to make decisions yourself.
  • Honestly, a lot of assaults involving alcohol are really behavior that would be assaultive regardless, but is enabled by alcohol.  So… as a bare minimum standard of behavior, realize consent still matters when people have been drinking, and that nobody is asking for or deserves rape because they got drunk.  Watch out for your friends when you’re drinking together, and don’t take reports of assault any less seriously because the people involved had been drinking.

Also relevant is the idea of consenting sober to doing sex things drunk.  One of my partners, for example, doesn’t really enjoy having sex sober because he finds it stressful and intimidating.  So, we discuss sober (or close to sober) what sort of things he and I are in the mood to do, and sort of get a plan together, but we don’t actually do anything until we’re both rather more drunk.  Either of us can still revoke consent at any time, and we stick to what we agreed to sober.  

Similarly, there are certain sex acts that I only enjoy doing when my inhibitions are lowered.  So sometimes my answer to a sexual proposition is “Yes, but let me have a few more shots first, and don’t do x,y, or z thing after I’m drunk, even if I say it’s okay at the time.”

ok so lemme do a short thing about virginity/ tightness of vagina. Your vagina gets looser as you become more sexually aroused during intercourse. This is why when you normally put a finger in your vagina, its a lot tighter than when you put it in when you’re aroused. The myth…

FYI the hymen stretches too. The only reason it would break is if you have no idea what you’re doing.

Hymens are actually highly variable in terms of thickness, elasticity, and size and shape relative to the vaginal opening.  I’m given to understand that average hymens can, with care, stretch enough to accommodate PIV intercourse, but not all can.  

But yeah.  Vaginas go back to their original size and shape.  It takes time, so if you want to train your vagina to comfortably accommodate larger penetration, you can do this!  But even after doing so, it will shrink back down if you let it alone for a few days or weeks.

SO APPARENTLY NERDLESQUE IS A THING.

I would just like to point out that she has a Stargate tattoo on her left wrist.  Which makes this whole scenario even hotter.
