Sexual assault is any sexual activity without the consent of both parties. You and your partner need to give and get an ENTHUSIASTIC YES every step of the way.
Consent is when both people agree, both verbally, physically and emotionally to a sexual activity. It involves checking in with your partner, allowing your partner to stop at any time, being open to your partner changing their mind, and going at a pace that is right for everyone.
