Unblurred Lines

Unblurred Lines Graphic: text unblurred lines, with two lines cut through text

Unblurred Lines is a discussion-based course on topics around sex, consent, sexual violence and relationships. It’s all about empowering students with the knowledge to challenge behaviours around sex and consent. It’s not a lecture, and doesn’t blame or shame anyone, instead it’s a safe space for students to explore difficult grey areas, ask questions and discuss in an open honest environment.

What to expect from the sessions?

Three hour course cycle:

The course will be split into two 1.5 hour sessions covering a range of topics. At the start of each session the session leader will work with the students to set ground rules and make sure everyone is comfortable with the group. Throughout the session there will be trigger warnings so that students are prepared for the content to come and can leave at any time if they feel uncomfortable.

Session one will cover:

  • Consent
  • Sexual violence
  • Exploring scenarios and unblurring lines
  • Rape myths and victim blaming

Session two will cover:

  • Rape culture
  • Gender Norms
  • Sexual objectification, porn and the media
