And what if you are not 100% sure that you are doing something consensual?
ASK. It takes some courage and it is not always easy to talk about your sexuality and your lust but it always pays off, for both partners.
It can also be helpful to ask yourself some questions about your own feelings, like:
“What do you need for your sexual activity to be consensual? How do you want to talk about consent with your partner? Can you express the things you really do not like within sexuality?…”
