Title IX: Sexual Harrassment and Assault

Yes Means Yes

Together we can make sure that when sex happens it is a positive experience for everyone involved. This positive experience is based upon consent, mutual agreement by both parties involved to every action that occurs along the way.

In other words, both people have to say “Yes” and to continue to say “Yes” as the interactions continue—this is what healthy intimacy is all about!
