About the Author

Yumi Stynes is a second-gen Japanese-Australian TV and radio presenter who, like a lot of us, had to 'unlearn' period shame. She's currently the host of Ladies, We Need to Talk, an award-winning podcast that explores all the trickiest topics and taboos about women's health, including periods, discharge, difficult motherhood, and whether or not your vagina is weird. Most people know Dr Melissa Kang as the longest-serving expert behind the iconic Dolly Doctor column, but she's also a practising medical doctor for marginalised young people and has academic roles at the University of Technology Sydney and the University of Sydney. She is fifth-generation Malaysian-Chinese Anglo-Australian, which makes specialising in adolescent sexuality and sexual health all the more interesting. She continues to speak about these topics in the mainstream media.


'Welcome to Consent is a fierce, funny, celebratory and extremely supportive young people's guide to saying no, saying yes and being "the boss of your body."' - Emilie Coulter, freelance writer and editor

'While one might think consent is a fairly straightforward proposition ("Yes means yes and no means no--right?"), the authors make clear from the get-go that there's a lot more nuance and complexity to consent than meets the eye. Some of the myriad issues that complicate matters include power dynamics, experience levels, cultural backgrounds, communication skills, substance use, desire and embarrassment.' - Emilie Coulter, freelance writer and editor

'Most will see the immense value in honest, direct talk that prepares young people of all types for normal, complicated human interactions. Lucky is the young person who consents to read this book.' - Emilie Coulter, freelance writer and editor
