By *asking* for , more burden is placed on the respondent, just like how platforms "ask" for consent to legal jargon. The respondent then becomes disproportionately responsible for the consequences, which are often uncertain. Sex is not something one simply does to another, but rather a mutual activity between two adults who take equal responsibility for their actions and the consequences. The "yes/no" model should be improved to allow much more consideration.

sex, consent 

@austin all parties involved must consent, and may withdraw consent for further actions at any time. That should be the baseline.

sex, consent 

@kescher No doubt, but the baseline still allows impulsive behaviour, and I suppose people still have reservations to say no during the process. Need to go beyond that is what the article claims and I agree.
