Examples of Positive Sexuality and Sexual Consent in #yalit (the #SVYALit project)
In Infinityglass by Myra McEntire, the male character literally asks if he “has the green light”.
In Plus One by Elizabeth Fama, the main female character expresses sexual desire without shame. And there is consent.
In This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales, we are reminded the being able to consent is dependent on being sober.
In Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller, the main character, Callie, learns to express what she needs/wants and is respected.
And in Guitar Notes by Mary Amato, we are reminded that not all male/female relationships have to involve sex.
Author Christa Desir also has her list of Sex Positive books up on her blog today: http://christaramblesandwrites.blogspot.com/2014/03/consent-and-sensitivity-good-sex-in-ya.html
Please reblog and add your examples to the list
