6. Respect your boundaries and those of others
(Read it carefully, it’s about “yours and those of others”. For some people, it is more difficult to respect one’s own boundaries, while for others, it is others’ boundaries that seem less important. Here, the boundaries of everyone are important!)
Respect, at all times, personal boundaries of yourself, others, and the professional.
Personal boundaries are the invisible lines beyond which one begins to feel uncomfortable.
Boundaries are variable and can change at any time and depending on several factors such as the context, the approach, the partner, and especially the intent. It is therefore up to the person themself to decide if and when their boundaries have been reached or not.
7. Practice consent
(Same here, the consent of everyone is important!)
Practicing consent is making sure that everyone is, at all times, perfectly comfortable with what is happening. (see the Guide to Consent)
