Many college and university campuses have adopted affirmative consent policies. More than the standard of human decency, it is the law. Issues of sexual assault, rape and consent are nowhere near as cut-and dried as we were once raised to believe. In this important lecture, using his own life experiences that led to his HIV infection, Scott courageously explores the broad and comprehensive definition of consent in a way that all students can understand: consent before sexual activity is clear, knowing, voluntary, affirmative, unambiguous, conscious, ongoing, sober, wholehearted, unforced, active, respected, attentive, explicit, enthusiastic and mutually agreed-upon.
