Let your yes be yes, and your no be no

Consent is about actively and enthusiastically agreeing to be sexual with someone. Before being sexual with someone, you need to know if they want to be sexual with you too – and that sex is wanted.

Consent is never implied by things like your past behavior, what you wear, or where you go. It is always communicated clearly.

This is an International Planned Parenthood Africa Region original video on sexual consent produced by Dr. Aproko from Nigeria in partnership with the Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria.
