What do you know about mixing drugs or alcohol and sex? Many acts of sexual assault involve drinking or doing drugs. Sometimes one person will sexually assault another after both have gotten drunk or high together. After the victim has passed out, the other person assaults the victim while he or she is unable to say “no”. Remember – not saying “no”, isn’t saying “yes”! This type of crime is a common form of sexual abuse in the NWT.
A comic book addressing youth sexuality was launched by the Department of Health and Social Services on April 21, 2011. Kiss Me Deadly reflects a frank presentation of the realities facing youth as they make tough decisions around their sexuality.
