Consent means actively agreeing to be sexual with someone. Consent lets someone know that sex is wanted.
Sexual activity without consent is sexual assault or rape. Period.
Both people must agree to sex, every single time for it to be consensual.
Consent is a choice you make without pressure, force, manipulation, violence, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Having sex is about have sex you genuinely wanting to, not feeling pressured or feeling like you’re expected to do so.
Be informed and in agreement. Know the full story.
EXAMPLE: If someone says they’ll use a condom and then they don’t, there isn’t full consent.
EXAMPLE: If someone records your sexual act or takes pictures without your permission or knowledge then there isn’t full consent.
Saying yes to one thing (like going kissing, touching or make out) doesn’t mean you’ve said yes to having sex.
Anyone can change their mind about what they what, at anytime. Even if you’ve done it before. Even if you’re both get naked, even if you simply change your mind.
Sexual consent is an agreement to participate in a sexual activity. Before having sex with someone, you need to be certain that they want to be sexual with you. Likewise, before having sex with someone, you need to be certain that you want to have sex or participate in a sexual activity.
Be very straight forward and honest with your partner about what you want and do not want.
Consenting and asking for consent are all about being honest and clear, respect, setting your personal boundaries and respecting the personal boundaries your partner.
When you’re engaging in sexual activity, consent is about clear and verbal communication. Communication should happen every time. Giving consent for one activity, once, does not mean you are giving or have given consent recurring sexual contact.
For example, agreeing to kiss someone doesn’t mean that person has permission to remove your clothes. Having sex with someone in the past does not give that person permission to have sex with you again.
Without consent, sexual activity (including oral sex, genital touching, and vaginal or anal penetration) is sexual assault or rape.
Both people must agree to sex, every single time, in order for it to be consensual.
Again, without consent, sexual activity (including oral sex, genital touching, and vaginal or anal penetration) is sexual assault or rape.
