What I do to set boundaries: Verbal [I express the activities I want to do with potential partners that approach me.]
What I do to set boundaries: Verbal [I approach potential partners with whom I am interested in engaging.]
What I do to set boundaries: Verbal [I say "no" to or otherwise decline activities I do not want to do.]
What I do to set boundaries: Verbal [I tell my partner if something becomes uncomfortable]
What I do to set boundaries: Verbal [I stop my partner if I am not sure of what I want.]
What I do to set boundaries: Verbal [I ask my partners what I can do to make their experiences better.]
What I do to set boundaries: Non-verbal [I use facial expression and physical proximity to indicate my level of interest in individuals or groups that approach me.]
What I do to set boundaries: Non-verbal [I use gestures or body language to let others know I am interested.]
What I do to set boundaries: Non-verbal [I use gesture or body language to accept or decline activities.]
What I do to set boundaries: Non-verbal [I rely on my partner to know from my physical responses if something has become uncomfortable.]
What I do to set boundaries: Non-verbal [I become hesitant or unresponsive when I am not sure of what I want.]
What I do to set boundaries: Non-verbal [I read my partners' bodies to discover what I can do to make their experiences better.]
It is the responsibility of a participant to verbally interrupt any unwanted touch activity.
I can always tell when someone has sexual intentions toward me.
If you don't want to engage with an individual, you should just tell that person rather than trying to be polite about it.
Sex while only one party is intoxicated can't be consensual.
It is the responsibility of the party initiating touch contact to ensure continued consent to the touch activity throughout.
There are touch situations in which you don't need to ask verbally to do every little thing.

FALSEfemale bodiedwomanHeterosexualWhite or CaucasianRegular Attendee
Clumsy application of consent-based techniques wherein you believe the violation to have been accidental, Inappropriate comments, gestures or other expressions of sexual intent in a defined non-sexual space, Touching without seeking consent (in environments where this is defined as inappropriate by the space agreement), In all 3 cases, I had indicated a desire for a sexual interaction, which was being leveled down with direct contact to me, on the assumption that I was consenting. I think in each case, the woman justified it to herself with, "He clearly wants this, because he just expressed a sexual interest."
FALSE
I didn't know what would happen next if I chose to report., I did not want to "make a scene" or interfere with everyone's good time., I didn't want to be labeled a "troublemaker"., I was afraid of the general social repercussions., I didn't want to get the women in trouble. ALSO: I was sexually interested in the women, and reporting would have reduced or eliminated my chance of connecting with them.
