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 for information on what you can do to help.
