Proposed Affirmative Consent Law Aims to Prevent Rape among College Students (Senate Bill 967)

Proposed Affirmative Consent Law Aims to Prevent Rape among College Students (Senate Bill 967)

What the affirmative consent standard requires is not just communication about sex; it's constant awareness that you may be raping your partner if you don't read the signals properly and if you fail to notice that there's some ambiguity to be cleared up. (According to the California bill, "if there is confusion as to whether a person has consented or continues to consent to sexual activity, it is essential that the participants stop the activity until the confusion can be clearly resolved.")
