Did you know...
It's not the offence that a woman wasn't consenting.... If the male could prove he reasonably suspected she was consenting (but just liked to play otherwise etc.) then no offence has been commited... Some crimes are a ***** to prove.
well exactly. how can you prove that someone isn't thinking what they say they were thinking? The whole thing is clearly due for a rehaul, it just moves painfully slowly. I mean, it wasn't illegal to rape your wife til 1991! And if you don't believe me look up case R v R.

i want to thank you all for your advice, i kinda feel like im helping more than i did before if that makes sense im just waiting for her boyfriend to pick me up bacause she wants to talk to us about the pros and cons of reporting it- and as for those of you who have said about him doing it to other people he put one of his ex girlfriends in hospital as he thought she was cheating on him so it wasnt a one of and it cant be allowed to go on

no, R v R. Regina v Regina would be for any crime that the queen had committed. You should know about R v R as a law student, no?

why do so many people state "go to the police" as an immidiate response to all rape related threads, its not always that simple.

It might help for her to contact some of the rape crisis helplines, as they have people trained to help with this kind of thing, or perhaps a counseller who can help her talk through her problems. you might feel helpless now, but remember that for her to tell you took a lot, but also that she must consider you a good friend to be able to trust you, so don't doubt your capabilities as a friend. just be there for her as much as you can, and like you said you would, support her through this difficult time

It occurs to my mind that there is an awful lot which I 'should' know.

Thats all you really can do, apart from hoping she goes to the police about it and perhaps considers counselling?

Since you and her boyfriend are the only ones who know about it, reassure her that you can work this out together, and will find the best way forward for her. Like people have been saying it is most important to remind her that she is not alone in this, and that people care for her. Best wishes to her and yourself.
