Wanna Have Sex? Consent 101

Organization:  Laci Green

Type of Resource:  YouTube Video

Description:  In this video, Laci Green offers a basic overview of sexual consent: how to properly ask for consent, as well as what consent does and does not look like.  In the second half of the video, she discusses a few circumstances in which consent cannot be obtained (when the person is drunk, underage, or when you’re an authority figure). She concludes on the thought that cultivating a culture where good consent is the norm is one of the most powerful ways to prevent sexual assault, and we all have to be a part of it.
