For sex to be legal and safe, consent is a must. Our pamphlet “What is Consent?” provides parents and young adults with the information concerning consent, sexual assault, and rape.
What consent is, and what is not. Consent, body language, and other nonverbal signals is not a replacement for consent. Consent MUST be verbal.
There are consequences concerning both the victim and the offender. Offenders face up to 15 years in prison, and 20 years if the victim is underage. About 70% of rape victims report moderate to severe psychological distress, with 13% attempting suicide.
Preventing sexual assault is important. Every 92 seconds someone is sexually assaulted in the United States. When it comes to sex, always show respect to the people you are with.
