Consent is the act of giving permission or approval. 



Consent doesn't have to be verbal but must be a clear communication and given without coercion. It may be retracted at any time.

Force can come in many forms: physical restraint or when the victim is incapacitated. It can also be emotional coercion, manipulation, or intimidation.
