Talk About Consent
Informed consent: You and your partner both know the risks and activities involved. You know what activities are acceptable and what is off limits.
Enthusiastic consent: You and your partner should both want to participate. If either of you is less than excited, stop, talk, and re-evaluate.
Continuous consent: Consent is agreement to one act and does not imply consent to any other. Check in with each other as each encounter progresses.
Consent without coercion: Your consent and your partner’s should not be based on fear, discomfort or pressure. If your partner says no or is unsure, do not keep asking.
