In Australia, some legislative duties fall to states and territories because of the federal structure of our government - and this is the case when it comes to consent laws.
WATCH: Moving the line by The Good Society.
Not many people know what the laws are and let alone that other states and territories do not prescribe to the same status quo.
But before we get into that, let's look into what consent means.
The Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network called RAINNin America sights sexual consent as "an agreement between participants to engage in sexual activity."
To be put simply, no means no, and yes means yes, and the giving of consent can change at any point.
In Australia, discussions about consent have been thrust into the mainstream zeitgeist after instances of abuse were brought to light.
Earlier this year, Brittany Higgins revealed that another parliamentary member sexually assaulted her, and as a result, other stories of abuse from inside parliament were outed.
In February, former Sydney private school student Chanel Contos shared an Instagram poll asking if any Sydney girls had experienced or knew someone who had been sexually assaulted by boys from all-boys private schools.
As a result, 70 per cent of voters said yes to the poll, and it inspired Chanel to create a Google doc for people to share their testimonies, which now has tens and thousands of stories.
The government was under a lot of fire (and rightfully so) for their own actions and not educating young people on consent.
However, in response, they released a now failed video about consent which depicted a young girl bullying a young man.
It was cringe, unappropriated and has since been pulled down.
To help clear up at least a little confusion, we have rounded up the different consent laws in every state and territory.
The age of consent changes slightly with every state and territory.
