What are the signs of a healthy relationship?
Here are some relationship ‘green flags’. We will all value slightly different qualities in our relationships, however, everyone deserves to be respected, feel safe and be cared for, feeling that you have your needs met.
Why are healthy relationships important?
Strong social connections help us to navigate our stressors, solve problems and overcome challenges. Building positive relationships makes us happier, improves our feelings of security, and provides meaning to our lives. Healthy relationships are a key part of our mental, physical and sexual health (or our overall health). We all deserve to be happy and healthy in our relationship.
What is consent?
Consent means agreeing to do something or giving permission for something to happen. When it comes to sex, this means agreeing to have sex or engage in sexual activity.
Sex or sexual activity can include sexual touching, oral, anal and vaginal sex with a penis or with any other type of object.
If someone does not give consent or feels pressured, scared or is drunk or high, and a person still engages in sex or a sexual activity with them, this is sexual assault or rape.
Any sort of sexual activity without consent is illegal whatever the age of the people involved and whatever their relationship.
Someone might agree to sex earlier on and then change their mind and everyone has the right to do this.
Consent is essential and should be ongoing (not just something you ask for once) • Sex should be pleasurable, safe, feel good, and be fun!
If you’ve been the victim of a sexual assault, then please contact The Havens.
