Consent is a conscious agreement to engage in sexual activity. It is continuing and voluntary throughout the engagement in sexual activities.
- Freely given – without pressure, not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, not given by someone else, and/or without manipulation
- Reversible – anyone engaging in the sexual activity can change their mind at anytime
- Informed – knowing what the consent is giving consent to do
- Enthusiastic – wanting to engage in the sexual activity because you want to and not because you feel expected to
- Specific – consenting to one sexual activity does not mean giving consent to other sexual activities

Yes, No, Maybe So: A Sexual Inventory Stocklist

The Yes, No, Maybe So: A Sexual Inventory Stocklist from Scarleteen, allows you to go through scenarios and mark each situation with a yes (“I want to”), no (“I don’t want to or I don’t think I would”) or maybe (“I might”).
