Consent should be an easy thing to define.

But this video from Campus Clarity illustrates the concept in a way that really resonates -- just by using a cell phone.

In the video, a woman attempts to borrow a phone from an array of people using different speech tactics; her inquiries range from curious to forceful to sneaky.

The questions she's asking may seem innocuous if taken at face value, but when considered in the context of sexual consent, they take on an especially powerful meaning.

This video makes us all step back and think about the fact that unless you get an enthusiastic "yes," the answer is "no."
