How many times have you been in awe after hearing a story about a guy actually asking for consent before initiating intimacy? How many times have you yourself described yourself as “spoiled” because you partner treated you with respect? This is the norm! anything less than that is NOT OK! We’ve been conditioned to accept terrible behavior because “men are just like that” and when we discuss it, we are told “#notallmen”
Having a partner respectful of your boundaries IS THE NORM! Do not accept anything less than this basic standard. Do not believe nonsense about this being a magical, rare occurrence. This can be the norm for you!
