Video Page: The Amorous Adventures of Shakku and Megha in the Valley of Consent

Navigating the thin line between ‘yes, no, and maybe’ while verbally expressing consent can be tricky. There are times when one might want their partner to make the first move, and there are times when one might be confused about their own sexual boundaries despite experiencing physical or emotional attraction towards a person.
