What is prompting?

Prompting is a term used to describe a communication technique used to help someone with a cognitive or memory impairment to remember specific information or perform a particular action.

What is stealthing?

Stealthing is the act of removing or tampering with a condom during sexual intercourse without the knowledge or consent of one’s partner. In other words, it is the deliberate act of a person secretly removing a condom during sex, without their partner’s knowledge or consent. This can put the non-consenting partner at risk of unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and is considered a violation of sexual consent and autonomy. It is important for all sexual activity to be based on mutual consent, and for partners to discuss and agree upon the use of protection beforehand.
