Attempted or completed non-consensual sexual act
Anal, oral, or vaginal penetration
Threats of rape
Verbal agreement to engage in sexual activity; silence does not mean "yes"
Must be given by a sober, conscious individual
Must be given freely, with no emotional or physical force
Consent to one act of sex does not mean consent to all acts of sex
Know or it's "NO"
Silence does not equal a verbal "yes." Make sure you have verbal consent before engaging in any sexual acts.
A person has the right to say no at any point during any sexual act, even if they have consented in the past
If your partner says no or tells you to stop, stop immediately
