OMG, this is embarrassing! But....should it be?
Consent, according to Guilford’s Misconduct Policy, is explained as a shared permission for sexual activity. Students have the responsibility to ensure that all sexual interaction occurs only with mutual consent (verbal or non-verbal).

If consent is given for one sexual act, it does not mean that consent is given for all future acts. Students must confirm that mutual consent is given for all sexual acts within a sexual interaction.
A student can withdraw consent at any time during a sexual encounter.

Non-communication is not consent.
Consent can only be given when a student is able to freely make a n informed choice between two options; yes and no. Consent cannot be given if someone is asleep, unconscious, incapacitated, coerced, threatened, intimidated or forced, under the age of 16, or impaired by alcohol (and other) drugs.

A previous or current sexual relationship between the parties may not be taken as indication of consent.

Are you in a healthy relationship?
