Both Sides: Understanding Consent

About The Book

What does it mean to give consent? 

What happens when someone does sexual stuff the other person DOESN’T want them to? 

How can a person let a potential romantic partner know what they want to do and what they don’t want to do?

This book is designed to give information from both sides of the consent issue — from those who need to ask for consent and those who can choose to give it.

It has been designed for use with high school and middle school aged populations. 

This book is a short introduction to affirmative consent. It is written to be appropriate for middle-school and high-school ages and intentionally uses gender-neutral pronouns, to promote inclusive learning.
