Consent

In common speech, consent occurs when one person voluntarily agrees to the proposal or desires of another. The concept of consent has been operationalized in several major contexts, including in law, medicine and sexual relationships. Types of consent include implied consent, expressed consent, informed consent and unanimous consent. Consent as understood in legal contexts may differ from the everyday meaning. For example, a person with a mental disorder, one with a low mental age or one under the legal age of sexual consent may willingly engage in a sexual act, but that consent is not valid in a legal context.
