Doing ‘IT’

Consent

September 16, 2019

in this episode Anne speaks with FPV educator Kit about what consent means.

When do young people start to learn about consent? What should adults say about it? What does consent mean in a sexual relationship? What does the law say about consent? What does FPV say about consent in classes? Have you talked about enthusiastic consent with the young people in your life? 

As FPV are based in Victoria, the age of consent laws we refer to are Victorian laws. Please be aware that laws vary from state to state and internationally.

Some resources which we sometimes use in class to talk about consent:

Consent for KidsConsent is like a cup of tea

Vic legal aid consent and the law

Laci Green Consent 101.
