What Is Consent?

Consent is a voluntary and sober agreement to engage in every step of a sexual activity. The absence of a verbal "no" does not indicate consent. If consent is not present, then a sexual assault has been committed. Consent can be withheld at any point and must be given for each act. Individuals who are intoxicated cannot give consent.
