Do you know what classifies a sexual act as rape?
Here are 3 things you may not have known are classified as rape:
- If You Ask Your Partner To Switch Positions And They Refuse
Yes you may have consented to the initial act although when a position becomes painful and unpleasant, when you ask to switch positions and they refuse. It is rape!
It’s never OK for someone to do something to your body after you’ve asked them not to.
- If You Tell Your Partner They’re Hurting You, But They Ignore You And Keep Going
Communication is an essential part of a relationship especially in the bedroom. If you tell your sexual partner that they are hurting you and they ignore your statement, it is rape!
Once you’ve expressed discomfort and disinterest in continuing, then it’s time to stop, and your partner should comply with that.
- If Someone Tries To Have Sex With You When You’re Incapable Of Giving Consent
If someone tries to have sex with you when you’re too drunk, high, or unconscious to agree to it, then it’s not your fault. It is rape! Not being capable of saying “no” is not the same thing as saying “yes.” Period!
Any sexual activity in which one party doesn’t give their full consent to begin with, wishes to withdraw their consent after giving it, or is incapable of giving consent in the first place, is rape!
