What if the guy who 'raped me' doesn't know that he raped me Watch

    So even if she explicitly said 'no' and 'stop' you still don't think it can be classed as rape? Are you for real? Talk about clutching at straws, what's your motive here?

    Tell me what facts have confused you so much?
    Emotions and the law don't mix up very well.

    And R v Bree.

    The OP gave a very, very hazy account of what happened. You may think it's obvious, but it certainly is not.

    If OP didn't want to have sex, then it is rape. An absence of a no does not mean yes, only a clear and ethusiastic yes means yes.
    "May we bump uglies?" ...
    "Yes? I'm sorry you're going to need to speak up and be a bit more enthusiastic."
