Consent is understood as giving assent or approval. Consent may be withdrawn at any moment. A person is not considered to have given consent:

A. if asleep, substantially physically or mentally impaired due to alcohol or other drugs, or unconscious, or

B. if intimidated, forced, or threatened.

Lack of explicit objection may not be construed as consent. It is the responsibility of each person to determine that the other person has given consent.
