Tabletop RPGs and Consent

Originally published at: https://geektherapy.com/tabletop-rpgs-and-consent/

#217: We look at consent in tabletop RPGs and how to create a safe environment. We look at parallels between tabletop RPGs and kink to find positive examples of informed consent. This conversation was sparked by a Facebook post by Ashley Gillespie-Horne and includes discussion of an RPG Consent Checklist created by Sean K. Reynolds and Shanna Germain.

Content warning: Sexual assault, rape, kink, BDSM, body horror.
