The Importance of Consent

Communicate, honesty and respect make sexual relationships better. Asking for and obtaining consent shows respect for yourself and your partner. It eliminates the entitlement that one partner might feel over the other. Neither your body nor your sexuality belongs to someone else.

What is Consent?

A person who is incapacitated by alcohol or other drugs cannot legally give consent. If you're too drunk to make decisions and communicate with your partner, you're too drunk to consent.

The absence of a "no" doesn't mean "yes."

Both people must be involved in the decision to have sex.
