‘sexual consent and tea’

Sex and consent is a difficult issue, mainly because something that seems so simple is continually ‘misunderstood’ in rape cases. Thames Valley Police made an easily comprehensive and effective video on this subject. One of our readers brought our attention to this video with the comment: “Brilliant indeed, British do it better! And remember, you can always drink some tea on your own.. ;-)”.  Read more and check the video below.

Sex and consent is a difficult issue, mainly because something that seems so simple is continually ‘misunderstood’ in rape cases.

Thames Valley Police have decided to tackle the issue by comparing sex to a well known British habit – drinking a cup of tea. How recognizable and easy to understand can you make it.

The result is this simple, effective and at times quite funny video, which gives clear instructions as to what means sexual consent.

The explanation of the introduction image is: “if they are unconscious, they don’t want tea”.[Picture: Thames Valley Police].
