Yes, if…

We’re all familiar with the sexual assault prevention slogan, NO MEANS NO.

The message hasn’t changed, but the slogan is evolving as a new definition of consent emerges, YES MEANS YES.

On Friday, July 29, 2022 the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that anyone not wearing a condom against their partner’s wishes can be charged with sexual assault.

Not only does YES MEAN YES, but it is within your right to set conditions on that Yes.

To say, “Yes, if…”

Note: I won’t be posting for a while. After eight years, I’m stepping back to rethink my blog. If this turns out to be my last post, I’d like to thank everyone who’s taken the time to like or comment. I’m forever grateful to Hugh and Brian for their advice and companionship on this journey.

Thank you!

  1. This is also true for encounters between two men. I’m not proud to say I’ve grown cynical about my gay peers. I get the impression that sex is often more about conquest; sometimes about one man dominating another. I hope I’m wrong, I hope romance and real concern for others still persists.

    I think I understand your desire to step back. The last time I posted a story it received zero views; I withdrew it and have been wondering why I do this. Anyway, I hope you continue writing in some form. Be well.
