WHICH BIRTH CONTROL OR BARRIER METHODS ARE RIGHT FOR ME?

WHAT IS CONSENT?
Affirmative Consent is:
- Informed (knowing)
- Voluntary (freely given)
- Active (not passive)
This means that through the demonstration of clear words or actions, a person has indicated permission to engage in mutually agreed-upon sexual activity. Remember:
- Consent to one act does not constitute consent to another act
- The existence of a prior or current relationship does not, in itself, constitute consent
- Consent can be withdrawn or modified at any time before or during sexual activity
- Consent is not implicit in a person’s manner of dress or flirtatious behavior
