Consent Culture  More Details

At Braven Manor we maintain a Consent Culture where everything has to be agreed upon by all parties.

We use the FRIES definition for consent:

  • Freely given – There must be no pressure, force or manipulation of any kind.

  • Revocable – Anyone can change their mind at any time, for any reason (or no reason!).

  • Informed - All parties must know exactly what they are consenting to

  • Enthusiastic - Everyone should be excited and interested in what is happening

  • Specific – Every individual act requires consent, every time

If you are not certain you have your partner’s consent, you don’t!

What is a consent violation?

A consent violation is any deviance from pre-negotiated activities that is deemed by either party to be distressing. If your activities do not adhere to the principles of FRIES, there is a strong likelihood that consent is being violated.
