Bioethics Research Library, Washington, D.C.
This paper explores how and when consent to sex can be possible for people whose decisional autonomy is compromised, such as people with moderate dementia and people in unequal power relationships.

It proposes tools for scaffolding and enabling the possibility of good quality sexual consent under nonideal conditions.
