Collecting “evidence” of sexual consent

 

Have you ever thought you had consent because your partner acted as though she wanted to have sex?  Consider the following forms of “evidence.”

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex by the way she kissed me.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex by the way she looked at me.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex by the way she dressed seductively.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex by the way she danced with me.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex by the way she touched me.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex because she drank shots with me.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex because she’s got quite a reputation.

I could tell that she wanted to have sex because she brought her diaphragm with her.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex because she came back to my room.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex because she took off her clothes.

 

I could tell that she wanted to have sex because she decided to stay the night.
