Video: What is consent?
Whether it’s holding hands, making out or having sex, it’s important to get consent! That way, everyone is on the same page and having fun together.
Kids Help Phone’s video goes over some basics about consent. However, this information is just the beginning! Before and throughout sexual activity (or any other physical interaction), everyone involved needs to communicate their boundaries and ask about (and respect!) others’ limits. Just because someone gave their consent to do something in the past, doesn’t mean they want to do it in the future. And, it’s always OK for anyone to change their mind at any time.
For more in-depth information on consent, check out our consent article and our consent quiz. You can also talk to a safe adult or reach out to a sexual health clinic if you have any questions or concerns.
