The "Consent" Double Standard
The topic of consent has been a hot topic over the last few years, and it should be. Women all over the world are shouting loud and clear that guys need to ask for consent before touching a woman. With the Me Too movement, more and more women are starting to come forward when there's been a case of sexual misconduct.
Guys, yes you absolutely need to ask for consent. Wouldn't you rather be safe than sorry? If it were me, I'd much rather ask for consent then get accused of sexual misconduct, sexual assault or sexual harassment.
And no guys, asking for consent does NOT kill the mood. The only time it kills the mood is when the woman really wasn't that interested in the first place. That's just brutal honesty.
Trust me if a woman has high interest in you, asking for consent will really just speed things along....rather than you sitting there wondering all night if it's okay to make a move.
For those that don't understand consent, let me break it down for you.
The definition of consent is when someone voluntarily agrees to the proposal or desires of another.
In a nutshell guys, just because a woman invites you over to her place....that doesn't mean she's consenting to sex. Just because you took her out for an expensive meal or she comes over to your place, that STILL doesn't mean she's consenting to sex.
So again, it's better to be safe than sorry and you should ask for consent. Honestly though if you're dating a woman with extremely high interest, don't be surprised if she starts putting her hands on you first to get things started........
Which leads me to another point. As many women these days that want guys to explicitly ask for consent.....I've noticed that women almost NEVER ask for consent for touching a guy. Now, I'm 44 years old as I write this, and I can't think of a SINGLE time that a woman has EVER asked for consent before touching me.
