...too many folks aren’t 'playing nice' – sexual, relationship, domestic and family violence is out of control and a shame on our community. prejudice and discrimination is pushing people to the point of not wanting to live…no one wins
...our relationships with ourselves, each other and the world are vital for working out who we are - relating is what life is all about !
...we are often told to play nice but not shown what that actually means
...sex is often talked about in negative consequence and fear based ways but it's important to remember the 'play' element and that sex and relationships can also enhance our health and wellbeing
the name 'playnice' originated on a home made shirt after a conversation with a friend about what message we wanted to put out there - this was as positive and simple as i could get
