Sex and Consent
It can be hard to know if the person you're with wants to be more intimate with you or not. Sometimes it's hard to ask or find out how the other person is feeling. It's important that the person you're with gives their consent to the level of intimacy you have with them.
How do you know if the person you're with has given their consent?
The only way to know for sure if someone has given consent is if they tell you. It's not always easy to let people know that you are not happy about something. Sometimes the person you're with might look like they're happy doing something but on the inside they're not. They might not know what to say or how to tell you that they are uncomfortable.
One of the best ways to determine if someone is uncomfortable with any situation, especially with a sexual one, is to simply ask. What are some examples of the questions you might ask:
Is there anything that you don't want to do?
Are you happy with this?
Are you comfortable?
Do you want to stop?
Do you want to go further?
You always have the right to say 'no' and you always have the right to change your mind at any time regardless of your past experiences with other people or the person you are with. Identify some things you can say or do if you want to stop:
say 'I want to stop'
say 'I need to go to the toilet'
In a situation where the other person isn't listening to you and you feel unsafe, you could pretend you are going to vomit (it's amazing how quickly someone moves away from you if they think you are going to be sick).
Sex + Text = SEXTING
Activity: Mindmap the dangers associated with SEXTING.
Sharing sexualized or naked images, videos or text messages with someone over the internet or mobile phone is what people call sexting (basically, a short form of sex + texting). Unfortunately, some people think that this is part of a normal relationship but the reality is that only a small proportion of young people sext.
Even if you think that you are happy to send or receive a message from someone, once you have sent it you have lost control of it. Anyone could come across or find the images, such as your future employer or even your mum or dad! Even scarier, they could still be out there when you have kids of your own!

Legal Issues Associated with Sexting
If the photo, video or text is about someone under the age of 18, it could be considered child pornography. Under Commonwealth law, if you create this material, send it to someone and/or have it on your phone or computer, you could face up to 15 years in gaol! Even worse, you could be put on the Sex Offenders Register.
How to protect yourself from SEXTING
Don’t create any of these images/videos/texts. You don’t want to ruin your future because of a silly mistake as a teenager.
Don’t ask anyone to send you any sexts.
Report to police if you receive a sext. You never know whether the person in the sext was abused or forced to send that image.
