What is Consent?
Consent is when you freely agree to participate in sexual activity with another person (or people). It is saying YES! to sex (anything from kissing to intercourse), either verbally or physically. That means everyone involved wants to be there, and wants to take part. You can withdraw your consent at any time, even if you have already said yes, or are already having sex.

Each year in late November thousands of South Australian school-leavers head to Victor Harbour for the Schoolies Festival. Schoolies is often portrayed by the media as a kind of Dionysian debauch; a weekend of binge drinking, illicit drug use and unsafe sexual behaviour.
Check out a collection of the best videos YEAH has made that highlight our work advocating for, educate and empower young Australians around issues of sexual health.

"The truth is that consent is simple AND complicated. So is sex. That’s one of the things that makes sex so interesting and exciting. And another truth is that consent IS worth figuring out, because sex without consent isn’t really sex. It’s assault (or rape)"
