Sexual intimacy is an extremely personal and individual experience. We must be careful as both givers and receivers of pleasure, to make sure that all participants involved are willing.

When we act against the wishes of another person, it could actually create trauma for them.

In fact, in the absence of consent, sex is equivalent to rape or sexual assault and is legally punishable.

Ensuring safety and respecting each other is what makes any relationship or interaction healthy.

And relationships built on honesty, openness, and trust create a happier and healthier society with a lower crime rate.
