Don't know what consent is? Let this animation of a cup of tea clear it up for you.
Would you like a spot of tea?
There's something every human can do to make sure consent is happening in all their sexy times.
Because so many of us misunderstand what consent is exactly, let me explain the concepts of the video above — which was inspired by an excellent post by Tumblr user RockstarDinosaurPiratePrincess — by using Kermit and a cup of tea.
Let's say you invite a friend over to your home, and you offer them a cup of tea. If they wanted it, they would say:
But if they said "no," you wouldn't make them tea.
And — this is the important part — if they said no to tea, would you brew it and try to make them drink it anyway?
Of course you wouldn't. It's the same with sex.
So remember this if you remember anything: Whether it's tea or sex, consent is everything.
Now, feel free to go brew yourself a cup of tea, too. If you want.
