Clarifying body language

In episode 798 of the Magnum Edition of Dan Savage’s Savage Lovecast podcast, he had a conversation with Justine Ang Fonte, author of Instagram account Good Byes. (Fabulous account on setting boundaries—highly recommend!)

This gem came out of the conversation:

“I see what’s happening with your body language right now. What word is that?”

There are so many applications for this. Assuring consent with a sex partner. Helping children to verbalize their experience. Working your way through an uncomfortable situation with a friend or a colleague.

Definitely one to post on the cork board so I see it often enough that I remember it at some point when it’s useful.
