Consent in relationships
A positive relationship is one that you should feel safe in and be able to go at your own pace sexually. If you find yourself in a sexual situation with a partner, you should feel comfortable in saying yes OR no.
Everyone has the right to consent. It is important in a relationship, between friends, married couples or with someone new. If you do not give your consent to sex then it is rape.
