Before taking part in any sexual activity it is important that everyone has given consent. Consent is usually given when a person feels safe and comfortable. It is important to know that there is no such thing as a grey area; if the answer is not yes, it is no. Consent can only be given by a person that is of their right mind.
This means it CAN NOT be given if:
If you aren’t sure if you have been given consent, just ask!
Being involved in sexual activity without giving/getting consent is assault.
If you know someone that has been a victim of sexual assault visit startbybelieving.org for information on what you can do to help.
