In this series of interactive short films focused on consent, you will meet four couples and follow each through a sexual encounter, from navigating new hookups to facing sexual issues in a relationship:
- Tom and Julie - view below
- Kieran and Jake - coming soon
- Becky and John - coming soon
- Mary and Siobhán - coming soon
You have control over these characters’ key consent decisions throughout each interactive short film. Each story has three possible endings. So if you don’t like where the story goes, begin again. And again.
'Tom and Julie'
Meet Tom and Julie. It’s closing time and there’s a bit of a vibe. Will these two friends take it any further?
Should Tom go back to Julie's?

Consent=OMFG (Ongoing, Mutual, Freely Given) is an education and awareness campaign aimed at spreading the messaging and principles of NUI Galway’s SMART Consent workshop initiative to the whole campus community. It asserts that consent is verbal / nonverbal; consent happens in all types of sexual activity and intimacy; and that it matters to people across sexual orientation, gender, relationship status.
SMART Consent is backed up by evidence collected since 2013 through surveys, interviews, and consent workshop participation by over 4,000 students in Irish third level institutions. As a campaign collaboratively designed by staff and student researchers, Consent=OMFG sends out the call that consent should always be ongoing, mutual, and freely given.
All statistics are drawn from SMART Consent research reports (2017 and 2018) – see www.nuigalway.ie/smartconsent
