Consent is a critical part of mental health liberation, and relationships can flourish when healthy boundaries are maintained.
In an effort to help create communities free of sexual violence and harm, we developed a toolkit to highlight, encourage, and guide men and masculine folks on issues of male privilege, sexual violence, and consent.
Tips for Men/Masculine People on Practicing Consent
- Know what consent is and how to give and receive it
- Name what all parties involved want & do not want
- Check in on expectations
- Consent isn’t just about sex
