Get Consent

Sexual activity without consent is sexual assault


It’s your responsibility to get consent if you want to engage in sexual activity with another person. If you don’t get consent, you’re at risk of doing something the other person doesn't want you to do. You might disrespect and hurt someone. You’re also at risk of breaking the law and facing criminal charges.

You must get consent for any sexual activity or intimate contact—not just sexual intercourse. This includes kissing and touching. Grabbing someone’s breasts, genitals or buttocks is sexual assault, so is making someone touch you. Any form of sexual activity with another person without her or his consent is sexual assault.
