If you’re struggling with the concept of consent for sex, just imagine that instead of initiating sex you’re making the other person a cup of tea.
Thames Valley Police have circulated a fantastic video that uses the analogy of making a cup of tea to explain the issue of consenting to sex.
The law around consent is defined within Sections 74, 75 and 76 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and is further complicated by numerous stated cases where consent has been raised as a defence. The issue of consent has caused many headaches to members of the public, law enforcement, teachers and the wider public. However, Thames Valley Police have utilised the cup of tea analogy in the video which can be seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZwvrxVavnQ Short, simple, and appropriately humoured, this video makes the subject of consent easy to understand.
