How does it work in reality?
⚠️ Consent is a must!
Giving consent means agreeing to take part in a sexual activity. It’s simple: if you haven’t clearly agreed with words 🗣, actions, or both, there’s no consent. Each partner MUST obtain the other one’s consent 🙅♀️🙅♂️.
And every new sexual behaviour has to be consented to: kissing the person or letting him/her touch you isn’t a free pass for other kinds of intimate or sexual contact.
You can agree, refuse, or change your mind at any time. You can withdraw your consent at any time in the sexual relationship. You have the right to change your mind, stop in the middle, say no. A “yes” at the start might turn into a “no” later on. And consent applies in all situations: in a couple, in a hook-up, etc.
