Prata om det: talk about it

Swedish journalist  Johanna Koljonen has set up this blog encouraging readers to post their negative sexual experiences so that the world can communally become more aware about the “grey zone” which exists between consensual and enjoyable sex, and what the courts see as, and punish as, cases of statutory rape. Called Prata om det, or ‘talk about it’, the venture was provoked by media responses to the sexual harrassment allegations brought against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Koljonen says of the idea, ““we need a language for sex without shame, we need to think of the limits, grey zones and violations that occur in sexual situations. Something needs to change. We need to talk about it”. Hear hear, and for more online projects along the same lines see my earlier post about HarassMap.
