The Bottom Line

Alison Berke Morano says that's intention with the consent kits is to open a dialogue between people thinking about having sex and stresses that consent must always be ongoing and continuous. “One of the reasons we added the guide to the consent kit is to promote a healthy conversation about consent and about sex,” Berke Morano says. “Even the conversation about the contract (positive or negative) is promoting the open communication we are going for. We believe that any healthy conversation between consenting adults will help cut down on violence and assault.” - Men's Fitness
