Violence and Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is "sexual contact without consent."

It is important to ask for consent before going further sexually with someone - one cannot assume that his/her partner is "giving signals" that it's OK.

There are varying degrees of assault, but assault is still assault - consent must be given when engaging in physically intimate acts.

As a relationship progresses from the first kiss on, it's important to continue asking for permission to take the next steps that follow the first kiss.

Part of being in a successful relationship is knowing the other person's zones of comfort.
