It’s one of those questions that’s been around for a long time, but it’s getting a bit of a boost from MTV News, which now allows viewers to ask for information on the “pertinent” form of the consent form.
While this form is not an exhaustive list of all the information the person requesting consent needs to be aware of, it does include a disclaimer that it is not a comprehensive list of every single item that the person needs to know.
That’s because a “pertinence” form is only used by those who have actually read and understood the terms of consent and have made an informed decision.
For example, a person may be a student who’s considering a sexual encounter but may have read the consent terms and didn’t actually understand them.
Or a person might be a health care provider who needs to discuss the risks and benefits of a medical procedure.
MTV News has also made a similar disclaimer, telling viewers that they “can only ask questions that are asked of the person you are asking the question about.”
In other words, you can ask about a specific thing that the individual being asked about doesn’t necessarily need to know, but is something that they may not have discussed before.
You can also ask questions about things that may be difficult for them to understand.
So, if you want to ask about “sexual consent,” you can, but you can also just ask questions like, “Do you feel safe when you are out alone at night?” or, “Have you ever been sexually assaulted?”
MTV News also encourages viewers to give the form a shot if they don’t think they’ll get an answer from a provider.
“I’d recommend you give it a try and see if you get a definitive answer from your provider,” the news site says.
“If they are unable to answer your question, it is your responsibility to ask another question.”
MTV News is an official partner of the National Sexual Violence Resource Center.
