How do you like to make decisions? How do you know you are ready to do something?

What does your decision-making process look like?

Does this process look different when it comes to sexual or intimate things?

What are ways that deciding things related to sex would lead to a different kind of decision-making process? How do your values play into making decisions about sex and intimacy?

Do you have emotions about it? Do you feel things in your body? Do you feel things in your mind?

What about when something feels wrong to you?
