consent consensual sex
Consent & Consensual Sex

The issue of consensual sex is often only brought up when there is some sort of doubt about whether both people engaging in sex want it to happen.

However, consent is a topic that should be discussed whenever you're thinking about a possible sexual encounter.

Consenting to one behavior does not obligate you to consent to any other behaviors. Consenting on one occasion also does not obligate you to consent on any other occasion.
