Consent is an affirmative, voluntary and knowing agreement to engage in sexual activity.
Consent is not equivalent to the absence of no. Silence or the absence of resistance does not imply consent.
Consent must be mutually and unambiguously communicated.
Past consent does not imply future consent.
Consent to engage in sexual activity with one person does not imply consent to engage in sexual activity with another.
Consent can be withdrawn at any time.
Coercion, force, or threat of either invalidates consent.
Consent is only possible if all parties involved are able to act under their own free will.
A person who is incapacitated cannot give consent. Incapacitation may result from the influence of alcohol or other drugs, when a person is asleep or unconscious, or because of a disability that prevents a person from having the capacity to give consent.
