With so much media discussion and focus on consent these days, it’s time to break it down into something that’s easy for us all to understand. While negotiating a sexual encounter can seem like a really scary thing… it’s actually as simple as yes or no.
Two people either want to have sex together, or they don’t.
If the answer is ever less than 2 yes’s then that means NO (unless of course it’s a one person encounter – but we won’t worry about that)
So – do the maths
Yes + Yes=YES
Yes + Maybe = NO
Yes + No = NO
No + Maybe = NO
No +Yes = NO
