Ask First is a sticker campaign started in 2014 to create awareness about consent. The campaign consists of eye-catching stickers and temporary tattoos that simply read, ‘Ask First’. The project originated at the San Francisco Folsom Street Fair, an annual BDSM event designed to celebrate alternative sexualities and community. Public sexuality is a huge part of what makes the Folsom Street Fair important. But all to often consent gets erased in sexualized environments, especially ones held publicly. With the intent of creating a safer space for all, Bay Area sex worker and sexual health educator, Maxine Holloway, founded this simple yet effective sticker project. “I’m pressed by this consent campaign - from its clear messaging to its simple and fun implementation via stickers and temporary tattoos shared by delightful people. And it's effective! What a beautiful gift to the Folsom Street Fair and our communities at large." -Jiz Lee, Queer Porn Producer & Author

“A little reminder about consent goes a LONG way! These simple stickers could be someone's first introduction to proper etiquette -- especially helpful in a public space that's charged with such sexy, exciting happenings. 'Ask First' is a preventative heads up, a gentle reminder, and a visible movement to increase the safety for everyone at Folsom Street Fair, and everywhere we live and play.” -Jiz Lee, Queer Porn Producer & Author

ABOUT

The Ask First Campaign now has ambassadors all over the country, and has been making consent visible at Pride events, sex toy shops, lamp posts, school notebooks, kink events, underground parties, subway trains, mirrors in bar bathrooms, college campuses, and more. “If people can understand the importance of consent in alternative and sexualized environments, this will assists our entire culture in understanding that there are no caveats when it comes to consent. Whether you are in your home, walking down the street, in a bar, or at a BDSM fair - consent must always be present. This campaign promotes consent and fights against sexualized violence everywhere.” - Holloway For 2017, we have NEW DESIGNS, and an army of BAD-ASS BABES, armed with stickers, advocating for our lives to be fun, filthy, and consensual!
