The NSW government will launch a $1 million advertising campaign on sexual consent that tells young adults they always need to get a clear verbal yes.

"If you want sex you have to ask for it and if you want that sex, you have to say yes," Prevention of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Minister Pru Goward told News Corp Australia ahead of the release on Friday of the state's first sexual assault strategy.

The strategy also focuses on preventing sexual assault and harassment in universities and workplaces.

The state government will spend more than $200 million over four years to support victims of sexual assault, including prioritising adult survivors of child sexual abuse on the social housing waiting list.
