What is Consent?
Consent means you agree that something can happen. Sexual consent is where a person agrees to sexual activity. Sex without consent is rape.
Consent can only be given by a person who has the ability and freedom to consent, either verbally or through body language. Consent must be given for all sexual activity.
Crucial: Sexual activity can range from kissing to touching each other, to full-on sex.
Thames Valley Police have created a video to help explain consent.
