Substances, Socializing, Sex, and Consent Lesson Plan and Toolkit

Andrew B. Spiers and Erica L. Smith

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.
