Consent education begins at home, continues at school, and goes on throughout our whole lives, from the first time grandma wants a kiss and doesn't get one, to explaining to prospective partners why you will never be interested in anal penetration. It's lifelong learning. Because it is not just about consent to sex - it is also about our relationships with each other.
