I know there is this movement to get people to always verbally ask for permission before progressing physical intimacy, but just as many people feel that this isn't what they personally want as a norm. I'm not talking about the aggressor either, some people enjoy someone taking the lead in that way and are prepared to withdraw consent of they don't wish to continue.

I caught myself watching ' millionaire matchmaker' recently and a guy they set up did he asked before he kissed the woman he went out with and from what I understand, they did kiss. The matchmakers felt this was a mistake and the date wasn't as successful as a result.

Not that I think that's an authority on consent culture or anything but it's just proof that people don't want that explicit verbal consent thing as a norm.
