The Affirmative Consent challenge
Mutual respect is the basis for a caring relationship. In this era of changing sexual norms -- where the old standard of 'No means No" is yielding to a new standard of "Yes means Yes", the way to demonstrate mutual respect is to ensure that in EVERY potential sexual interaction affirmative consent is obtained. Accordingly, we, the undersigned, do hereby pledge to actively ask our intended partner for consent each time before engaging in sexual interactions and to only proceed if that consent is given with enthusiasm. Mutual respect demands nothing less.
