Boston Zine Fest exhibitor #8: Nicole Mazzeo of Pleasure Pie
Nicole Mazzeo started Pleasure Pie in August of this year when she suddenly had a drastic and unexpected boost in her attention span. She began working on the many project ideas that had long been floating around in her head. Given her passion for sex positivity, these ideas included a choose your own adventure zine on consent, a Cosmogirl-style contraception quiz, and a handful of sex positive illustrations. Within one month, she miraculously completed all of these projects! Now she is creating new sex positive projects and ideas, and hoping her recent ability to focus on tasks doesn’t disappear as quickly as it arrived. Nicole loves: Sexual freedom, open communication, life experimentation, and stick-on tattoos.
I bought this one! It’s awesome
Consent means to give permission.
It is both people’s responsibility to get consent from their partners. Everyone has the right to decide whether they want to have sex or not.
· Freely given — no pressure, no manipulation, and no asking if it was ok to do halfway through or after the fact.
· Informed — telling them about any STDs they should know about, being honest about using condoms and birth control, and being honest about whether you’re sexually active with other people.
· Something you can take back — it’s ok to stop or change your mind at any time. Saying “yes” once doesn’t mean saying “yes” forever, or “yes” to other sexual activities.
· Enthusiastic — being excited about it, not just letting it happen.
When people think about consent, “no means no” often comes to mind. But saying “yes” is really important, too. A straight-up “yes!” means that no one has to guess or assume anything, and you’ll know they’re really into it.
