Would you risk having sex in California ('yes means yes')?

California adopts historic 'yes means yes' rule on sexual consent

I believe the 'yes means yes' rule on sexual consent is exactly how it should be. Sex is a contract IMHO and therefore the boundaries of the contract must be clear. Quoting from the law:


"Lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent, nor does silence mean consent. Affirmative consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time."


Knowing the above, would you risk having sex in California?

I would not. Here's why:


In other words, in order for sex to be lawful, both parties must acknowledge verbally and continuously that they are indeed in the mood for love (the word “verbal” was removed from the bill, but it seems impossible to satisfy the conditions nonverbally).
'Affirmative Consent' Is Bad for Women


As unbelievable as it sounds, "continuously" is actually the standard. It's an impossible, unworkable standard IMHO. And, it's exactly how it should be.

Down with sex! It's time to put the human race out of its misery.


I am really ambivalent about this law. On one hand, I agree with it completely on ideological and theoretical grounds. On the other hand, I think it's an absurdity that could potentially ruin the lives of many innocent people.

You guys must be doing it wrong.

Whenever me and the wifey get it on she always yells, 'Assent! Assent! Assent!'.

So, let me get this straight - in the land of Hollyweird, your sexual partner must continuously say "yes" "yes" "yes" until the final climaxtic moment otherwise you could potentially go to jail?

Seems like in Californification it now pays to videotape the whole shebang.

Here in Australia, if you fail to make your partner say yes yes yes right up to and beyond the vinegar stroke - all you risk is disappointing her/him.

Then again, in Australia, we prefer down under

Was that a double entendre? If so, could you explain it?

I think the state needs to issue everybody a punch card. You have to get your ticket punched before beginning and then at least two more times during, and it's all time stamped.

The final stamp is the important one though. That one comes after. Better bring your A game

If you don't get the last hole punched, it's an 18 month suspension.

Not even pron.

I'm agnostic but I support freedom of religion and feel that my lady friend should be able to mention Gods name as many times she likes.

I'm actually surprised that hollyweird (lol) didn't try to ban that or create a bill to separate church from sex before this idiotic law .

I just reread that. Leave it to the government to take the fun out of sex.

Come to think of it, she may have been saying 'Repent!'.
