Substances, Socializing, Sex, and Consent
In this lesson, participants will learn about the relationship between socializing and substance use among black gay men, the role substances play in sexual encounters, and how substances can impact one’s ability to give and receive consent. Through small group discussions, personal reflection, and collaborative learning, participants will develop a comprehensive definition of consent and explore the ways in which substance use impacts their social and sexual identities.
By the end of this lesson, participants will be able to:
- Define consent and describe how to clearly give and receive it from others.
- Assess the costs and benefits of substance use in social settings within their own lives.
- Name at least three strategies for negotiating safer sex while using substances.
