Giving and receiving consent is part of a healthy relationship. It is the mutual exchange of asking for and receiving agreement and ongoing approval. Consent is given through words, actions, or body language that communicate a clear and enthusiastic “yes.”

And it’s about more than sex – it is about respecting one’s personal and physical space. Your body belongs to you!

The message for this campaign is intended to be playful and fun, like dating should be. We are encouraging young people to “Taco ‘bout it” and always ask, “Is this o-queso?” before doing anything physical or sexual with another person.
