Saying things like “Is this okay? How are you doing? Are we going at the right pace for you?” periodically and respecting your partner’s response is not only a good idea, I think it is a necessary part of obtaining consent. Just because someone says yes at the beginning does not mean that he/she has to continue to say yes, and “not saying no” is also not the same as saying yes.
