  • Don't give chances to voilate your wishes. This often could lead to unwanted sexual advances! and If could be in a form of guilt, which does not make their fault, but its yours.

2. Have balance on your wants and needs

  • If you don't give response or resist, it's often can be interpreted as permission.
  • Have a direct answser or response with someone who is sexually pressuring you.
  • Tell the person or your partner what you want it, or don't want it. And stick with your decision.
  • Remember, there must always be active consent on both sides.

3. Listen to your intuition

  • If you feel you are being pressured into unwanted sex, Means you probably are!
  • If you feel uncomfortable or threatened by person or partner, get out of the situations immediately.
  • IMP: Any miscommunications can be explained later, no need to worry!

4. You have to Respond Physically

  • Some people simply don't listen or don't care, you have to physically defend yourself!
  • If possible, push the person away, scream "No!", and say that you consider what the person is doing to be rape.

Finally, Remember without clear consent from both parties it is still sexual assault and no one ever deserves to be raped or assaulted!
