Recently I read a post from a blogger called Dinosaur Rockstar Pirate Princess who came up with a brilliant way to describe consent. Someone has taken that post and animated it into a video featuring tea and stick figures. I’m constantly amazed at how many men treat sex like it’s something that is theirs for the taking regardless of whether the other person is willing. Personally I’ve always really enjoyed sex when someone is clearly enjoying having it with me. Sure, we’ve all had sex when we weren’t entirely in the mood but on the chance that starting the process doesn’t get you in the mood, you are allowed to say no.
