What is Sexual Consent

Consent is an agreement between partners about engaging in sexual activity. Laws vary by state and by situation, but in general consent is about communication.  

Two key elements of consent communication are:
Giving consent for one thing, one time is not equivalent to giving consent for continued sexual activity or a change in the type of sexual activity.
Consent can be withdrawn at any moment. A partner should clearly communicate that withdrawal of consent and the other  partner should respect it.
For example of positive and negative consent, check out RAINN What Consent Looks Like.
