What is active sexual consent?

If it’s not your body, it’s not your decision. Make sure you get consent.

Sexual consent means a person willingly agrees to have sex or engage in a sexual activity – and they are free and able to make their own decision.

Making sure you get and give consent before having any kind of sex with another person (or people) really matters.

You don’t need to have to have a sit-down chat about it,  but consent should always be clear, so you must ensure you have it.

If you are ever in any doubt about having someone’s consent, you should stop and ask.

Sex without consent is rape or sexual assault.
