Sexual consent quiz

Sexual consent quiz

Here, you can take a quick quiz to see what you’ve learned about consent. 

Look at the examples below. In each one, are both people giving enthusiastic consent?

Multiple choice
Gemma and Tai are both at a party. Gemma has had a lot to drink – her speech is slurred and she’s stumbling. They go the bedroom and have sex.

Incorrect! Gemma is drunk and can’t give consent to sexual activity. She’s stumbling and her words are slurred – these are signs that she doesn’t know what’s happening. This is true no matter how old they are. A person might feel more confident when they’re drunk or on drugs. They might even do and say things that make it seem like they want sexual activity. But when people have been drinking alcohol they aren’t in true control of themselves, which is why they can’t give consent. Choose another day to have sexual contact, when both people are able to give enthusiastic consent. This applies to any kind of sexual activity.

Incorrect! Ami is unable to consent to the act as they’re asleep and they don’t know what’s happening. This would also be true if both people involved were over 18.

Incorrect! Both people were giving their consent to have sexual activity. But Abigail removed her consent. This means sex should stop straight away. Consent can be removed at any point during sexual contact. Abigail can’t truly consent if she’s pressured by Noah to carry on.

Incorrect! Alex sends a sexual image to Indie without first getting her consent that she’s happy to receive this image. It’s just as important to get sexual consent when you’re online as it is when you’re offline. It’s not okay to go up to someone and show them your private parts without consent, so why would it be okay to send an image of them to someone without their consent?
