Limerence Press, an imprint of Oni Press has announced the next in the A Quick And Easy Guide series. Coming in October 2020, it’s A Quick and Easy Guide to Consent. Written and illustrated by Isabella Rotman, the book explores how to tell someone you want to do stuff with them, how to ask them if they want to do stuff with you, how to talk about exploring what stuff you want to do with each other, and more. Sergeant Yes Means Yes from the Consent Cavalry helps you navigate the tricky minefield of sex and relationships.
Writer / Artist Isabella Rotman says:
Consent, at its core, is simple. Sex with anyone other than yourself is a collaborative effort, and consent is the state we must be in engage in that effort. It’s about viewing your partner or partners as sovereign and free agents of their own sexuality and co-creators in your shared intimacy. With that viewpoint, the only thing left to do is communicate.
A Quick and Easy Guide to Consent also provides tips on what affirmative consent looks like, advocating for what you want, and setting boundaries within your comfort and safety.
I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to create this book. Consent isn’t just for sexual encounters, it’s a fundamental building block that should be practiced in every human interaction.
A Quick and Easy Guide to Consent is set for release on October 28th, 2020. It is currently available for pre-order at your local comic shop, bookstore, and Amazon.
