What is Consent?
Whatever your gender, whatever your age, Consent is important.
Consent has been defined as when one person voluntarily agrees to the proposal or desires of another. Another definition is “the mutual meeting of minds.”
In a sexual context this means respect of intimate boundaries and desires, ie not coercing or forcing someone to do something they are not enthusiastically willing or desiring to do.
Consent isn’t limited to sexual or intimate interactions, and can play a role in every interaction you have on a daily basis.
