Sexual Consent: “Consent means that both people in a sexual encounter must agree to it, and either person may decide at any time that they no longer consent and want to stop the activity.”
Consent isn’t just a one time thing. Consent must be redetermined each and every time two people engage in sexual activity. Relationship or not.
How to determine consent
When determining if someone is giving consent you must ask yourself these two questions:
- Does the person want to give consent?
- Is the person capable of giving consent?
What to do if the other person does not give you consent.
STOP! If your partner says no during any point stop right there do not continue this means that the other person does not want the sexual activity to continue.
If the person is drunk or high on drugs they are physically unable to give consent DO NOT proceed with any sexual activity.
I hope that you have learned a lot from my article and remember No means no!
