Sexual consent is when 2 people agree to have sex.

Consent can be verbal, like someone telling you they want to have sex.

A woman with her hand in the air. There is a speech bubble with a heart in it

Or, consent can be non-verbal, like someone nodding their head.

You cannot give consent if:

  • someone is trying to force you
  • you aren’t awake
  • you have had too much alcohol or have taken drugs
  • you don’t understand what you are saying yes to.
