This is worth sharing around.
Do you know how to give and get sexual consent? It may seem straightforward, but while almost all Canadians (96%) agree that sexual activity must be consensual, two-thirds (67%) do not fully understand how to properly give or get it.
Canada is one of the few countries that’s incorporated affirmative consent into their laws on sexual assault, so it’s vital that we understand what consent entails. It’s vital for everyone, actually; just because something is permitted under law doesn’t make it ethical to do. So I’ll underscore the point by sharing one of the best explainers of consent that I’ve seen.
Whoever you are initiating sexytimes with, just make sure they are actually genuinely up for it. That’s it. It’s not hard. Really.
If you’re still struggling, just imagine instead of initiating sex, you’re making them a cup of tea.
Much like Get Consent, it also comes in video form.
