In this episode we talk to Dr Elsie Whittington from Manchester Metropolitan University about how teenagers view sexual consent and the complexities within this.
We discuss how the idea of a 'black and white' approach to sexual consent doesn't represent the real-life experiences that teenagers come across. How does societies' difficulty in saying 'no' influence the idea of sexual consent? We consider how teaching can move from theory into practice so that teenagers feel informed and empowered to make the best decision about sex.
