Consent is conversation, not condoms.

Consent to one activity isn’t consent for all activities that might happen in a sexual encounter. Nor is it automatic consent for future encounters, with that same partner or with others. Consent needs to be ongoing throughout a sexual encounter. Consent can withdrawn by any partner at any time. Suggesting that a single gesture — the mutual opening of a condom package — sends the damaging message that consent really is a one-time event.
