We already know that sexual assault is a major problem on college campuses. With that in mind, it’s SO important that we all know what consent is and how to detect it. In order to help college students better understand consent, Planned Parenthood released four super helpful videos detailing what consent looks like and how you can be sure both parties are comfortable. As always, communication is key.
1. How Do You Know if Someone Wants to Have Sex With You?
The first video shows what it can look like when someone wants to have sex with you. By being aware of verbal and non-verbal cues, you can be sure that your partner is okay with what is going on.
2. When You Know They’re Into It
In an ideal situation, consent is obvious! By looking for the signals in this video, you can determine if someone is into what you’re doing.
3. When They’re Kinda Into It
The line isn’t always black or white when it comes to consent. No one can read minds! If it seems like someone isn’t fully okay with what’s going on, it’s best to stop what you’re doing and make sure they’re comfortable.
4. When They’re Just Not Into It
Whether you like it or not, people aren’t always going to be into what you’re into. In these situations, it’s best to accept their feelings and move on.
