VIDEO: This Sexual Consent Instructional Video Is Everyone's Cup of Tea

So, how do you like your tea (nudge nudge, wink wink)?

We’ve seen various approaches to sex education, as well as tips about navigating the sometimes tricky terrain of sexual consent. “No means no” is one way to go, but never before has consent been tackled with such elegant — and funny — simplicity than in this video that uses offering someone a cup of tea as a premise for schooling online audiences on the subject.

The clip, created by clever minds at Blue Seat Studios, spells out what to do in various scenarios in which issues of consent are in play using stick figures and a PG-rated metaphor to give viewers of all ages a chance to brush up on a very important social skill. Have a look below (via Vimeo):
