BREAKING NEWS: more shark attacks during shark week because they all think we’re saying ‘shark weak’ and it upsets them
every girl in the universal regardless of ethnic background, class, sexuality, etc knows the universal mating call of the straight male
If your partner is consenting, you will see them meeting you halfway on stuff, responding to your touch, touching you back, making approving noises, positioning their body helpfully, making occasional eye contact, smiling, giggling, kissing you, smelling your skin.
If your partner pulls away, flinches, draws back, goes still, goes limp, freezes, is silent, looks unhappy, starts holding their breath, goes from meeting you halfway to merely allowing your touch: stop and check in with words. Maybe they’re ticklish? Maybe they want to stop.
and really it’s good practice to check in with words on a regular basis anyway because everyone is different and enthusiastic consent looks different with every person.
This needs to be known!!! like it is literally the most important bit of knowledge any person that is considering being or already is sexually active. Because some people don’t know exactly how to say ‘no’.
