    Default Wdyt? Sex with sleeping woman not rape? *trigger warning*

    ***trigger warning***

    Article here http://m.smh.com.au/world/assange-fu...821-24jae.html

    Maverick British MP George Galloway has come under fire after reportedly claiming that a rape allegation against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had no basis because having sex with a woman when she is asleep is not rape.
    Mr Galloway's comments were made in a weekly online video broadcast presented by the MP for Bradford West in northern England.
    According to a report in The Guardian, Mr Galloway addresses himself to the allegations of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion made by two women - known as woman A and woman B - whom Mr Assange met in Stockholm in August 2010.

    "Even taken at its worst, if the allegations made by these two women were true, 100 per cent true, and even if a camera in the room captured them, they don't constitute rape," Mr Galloway reportedly said. "At least not rape as anyone with any sense can possibly recognise it. And somebody has to say this.
    "Woman A met Julian Assange, invited him back to her flat, gave him dinner, went to bed with him, had consensual sex with him, claims that she woke up to him having sex with her again. This is something which can happen, you know. I mean, not everybody needs to be asked prior to each insertion."
    Lawyers and anti-rape campaigners have reacted with outrage at the comments.

    Mr Galloway's comments follow those last week of US Republican Senate nominee from Missouri, Todd Akin, who caused uproar by saying that women's bodies can prevent pregnancies in "a legitimate rape".
    After a Republican backlash, including two Senators who suggested he quit his run for office, Mr Akin later clarified his comments. "Let me be clear," he said. "Rape is never legitimate. It's an evil act that's committed by violent predators. I used the wrong words in the wrong way."
    He added: "I also know that people do become pregnant from rape. I didn't mean to imply that that wasn't the case." He also said that he wanted to apologise "to those that I have hurt".

    Well if I woke to find my DP having sex with me I wouldnt complain (much lol) but I know people on here count it as rape.

    Harder to say because they just had sex and he just did it again after she had enugh and went to sleep. I guess it could be considered rape because she didnt concent the second time.

    I was asleep I would smack him in the mouth!

    .... firstly I agree - man is an idiot.

    I think if the woman (or man) says it was rape in that scenario it was rape. There was no consent given. Sex once with someone does not mean they belong to you at any time.

    But I can understand a man (or woman) might think its a bit fun to wake their lover through lovemaking and it could be totally acceptable in their relationship.

    But seriously not without discussing ahead of time that it would be wanted... because you can't know what another person would consider acceptable with their body.

    Ugh- despicable things to say from men who ought to know better.

    Lets call it what it is. Rape.

    ETA going on from Boobycino's point about it being fun to wake up a lover with sex.. that may be so, but you would only do it with a person whom you had known for some time, and whom you would have some idea about whether or not this behaviour would be ok with them.. not some woman you met hours before...

    I think, if priorly discussed, it can be a fun way to wake your partner up.
    For me, it would be rape, because there is never consent given to have sex, or touch me in any sexual way when I'm asleep.

    Sex without consent is r@pe. You need to be awake to give consent. Therefore, sex with a sleeping person is r@pe.

    As to the waking a partner up, surely you'd wake them up with some caressing, or some petting or light, sensual stroking. Not with a p3nis shoved in you at 6am. How bl00dy romantic.

    I can't believe anyone wouldn't see that as rape, there was no consent - that is rape!
    Disgusting.
