Safer Sex

Explore all things sexual health!

Feeling horny? Consent comes first! (Unicorn)

When it comes to consent, think FRIES! 

F- Freely Given. Consenting is a choice you make without pressure, manipulation, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

R- Reversible. Anyone can change their mind about what they feel like doing, anytime. Even if you’ve done something before.

I- Informed. You can only consent to something if you have the full story. For example, if someone says they’ll use a condom and then they don’t, there isn’t full consent.

E- Enthusiastic. When it comes to sex, you should only do things you WANT to do, not things that you feel you’re expected to do.

S- Specific. Saying yes to one thing (like making out) doesn’t mean you’ve said yes to other things (like having sex).

What is consent?

Having CONSENT means both giving and getting permission to go through an activity (yes, each step needs consent!).

This is done through clear verbal means:

Would it be okay if I ______?

Do you want to  ______?

I’d like to  ______, would you be into that?
