Consent and the law

If you are asleep, unconscious (passed out) or so out of it that you can’t make a decision for yourself then you cannot consent. Whatever anyone does to you while you are in this state is done without your permission and that makes it a crime. The sedative properties of some drugs – especially G – can leave a person incoherent or comatosed and unable to give their sexual consent.

If you believe you have seen sexually assaulted, help is available. Visit our information below or chat to an operator confidentially and without judgement.
