What Is Consent?
Consent is a freely given, ongoing, enthusiastic, sober, yes. You can say no through words, actions, and behaviours, and coerced activity is NOT consent. You have the right to say no any time, for any reason, and you do NOT need to provide an explanation. Remember, if there is an absence of consent, it is assault.
