    The men were concerned more about their techniques of seduction, while women are less afraid to ask their limits since the movement #MoiAussi, see a specialist of sexuality.

    “What I notice is that men are more cautious as they approach the women. And it is a good thing ! ” lance Dr. Laurie Betito, a psychologist specializing in sex therapy and director of the Pornhub Sexual Wellness Center.

    Encountered in the framework of the exhibition of the love and courtship that ended this weekend in Montreal, Dr. Betito says have observed several changes in the way men and women live their sexuality since the wave of denunciations of this fall.

    It is said that since the case Weinstein, several men have consulted to find out what courtship behaviours are appropriate.

    “What I tell them is that you simply must learn to recognize the signs that a person sends when she is not interested, and accept to say no. If you offer a woman a drink and she tells you “no thank you”, follow this answer and do not insist, ” she said.

    The women say they are

    “It doesn’t mean that men need to stop flirting, she says. They just need to learn the difference between flirting and being creepy ! “

    Women take on more control of their sexuality and express more openly their desires, argues Dr. Laurie Betito.

    “Before, we socialisait the girls by telling them they had to behave in a way to find a husband, that they were not to be dramatic or crying. But now, the girls are learning more and more to assert themselves in all aspects of their life, ” she says.

    According to it, the true gender equality is still far from being reached.

    “Even today, there is this double standard that a woman who takes charge of her sexuality and its pleasure is judged or faulted (slut-shaming), while a man who does the same is hailed. It is not equality. “


    Enthusiasts of BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadomasochism) are delighted also to see that the movement #MoiAussi has opened up the dialogue on the concept of consent. After all, the pre-set rules and consent are the basis of the practices of that community, argues Sara-Jay Bard.

    “It is for that reason that we don’t really like Fifty Shades of Grey, because the dominant goes beyond the consent, beyond the limits of the individual subject, this completely goes against the principles of BDSM,” says the adept.

    “In reality, the person who has the control, it is the person who receives it, not the one that dominates,” she continues. Because it is they who can withdraw his consent at any time. “
