This week (September 24-30) marks Sexual Health Week 2018, a yearly event hosted by the UK Family Planning Association (FPA) to inform the public, influence service providers and support health professionals on sexual health. In 2018 it is focusing on issues around sexual consent.

An FPA survey published this week revealed that less than half (47 percent) of people think it’s possible to withdraw sexual consent, “if they’re already naked.” Among young people aged 14-17, just 39 percent thought it was ok.

This revealed “deeply concerning attitudes” about sexual consent that is prevalent across all age groups, the FPA said.
