Man Who Removed Condom During Sex Convicted Of Rape

consent
When a pair of consenting adults agree to have sex, there are generally some ground rules put in place beforehand, no matter how spontaneous the act may be.

Both people are looking to have a fun, pleasurable experience, and that can only happen once the ground rules have been laid out.

This usually includes what acts are and are not on the table, and whether or not a condom will be used during intercourse. Either side refusing to meet the terms of the other could well lead to sex being taken off the table.

You would assume that once all the pre-coitus arrangements have been made that nothing would stand in the way of a good time, but that is not necessarily the case.

If at any point during the act someone says they have had enough and want it to end, that is a clear sign that it’s time to stop.

There have been enough rape cases of this type to make it obvious that stopping when one person asks that it should is the just and legal thing to do.

A recent case in Switzerland has made things a little murkier, though, and has proven that there are some different ideas about exactly what constitutes rape.

The case involved a couple who met through the social dating app called Tinder. The unnamed couple met up, hit it off, and decided they wanted to take things to the next level.

They performed the little routine that we discussed at the start of this piece, which included agreeing that the male should wear a condom during their sexual encounter. With all things agreed upon in an adult fashion, things took a little turn for the bizarre during the sex act.

The young man in question moved his partner into the doggy-style position, which of course meant that the female was unable to see what he was up to. It was at this point in the proceedings that he decided to remove the condom and penetrate the woman without any form of protection.

She was still unaware of this until the young man was finished, at which point it became obvious to her that the agreed upon condom was no longer in play. She viewed this as more than just a betrayal of trust, feeling that what happened was tantamount to rape.

Their case ended up going before the judge in Switzerland, and he was quick to agree with the woman’s claims of rape. The man was found guilty and sentenced to a 12-month suspended sentence.

This decision has muddied the waters in Europe for sexual assault cases, and it may end up having a huge ripple effect on future cases, assuming of course that it is upheld in appeal. Whether you agree with the decision or not, you have to understand the severity of breaking the sexual contract.

It is always best to stick to the agreed upon plan, and if that means wearing a condom when you don’t really want to, then so be it. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
