Consent is an important topic to learn about and there is always more to learn. We continue to define what consent means to us and each other. There are also a lot of different situations that have never really been modeled for people. The purpose of the Consent Made Simple series is to provide examples of positive examples of consent being properly observed from a variety of different situations and viewpoints. These scenarios apply to any person of any gender.
For our first episode, we chose to go with a fairly straightforward scenario. This is a couple in bed together. One person is interested in having sex but the other person is not feeling up to it at this time. Through the use of simple and clear communication, the two people are easily able to create safe space for both of them.
Even in established relationships, keeping communication open is important. Simple things like checking in with your partner about how they are feeling ensures you are both on the same page. If the answer is often a consistent no, then that might be a clue that something may be wrong. Having open communication helps you and your partner address any problems that bubble up before they become a real problem.
