[Paraphrased] “We had a 10 yr consensual relationship, so I didn’t rape her.”
This is what Harvey Weinstein is using as his excuse for one of his accusers.
Okay, here’s the thing, tubby. Spousal rape is a real thing. It’s a law in all 50 states that a husband may not force himself on his wife. Husband and wife is a consensual relationship too; but if she says no or otherwise is reluctant and he has sex with her anyway, then that husband is guilty of rape.
A wife can withdraw her consent. She can choose to NOT GIVE her consent for any sexual interlude. It is her right. If a wife can do that, so can the women you hold power over but aren’t married to.
A woman, any woman, can say yes 1000 times. If she says no on the 1001st and you fuck her anyway, you are a rapist.
If she changes her mind in the middle of intercourse and wants to stop, you have to stop or you’re a rapist.
That’s how consent works out there in the vanilla/decent society world you work in.
I didn’t decide this. The courts did. I can’t wait to hear the “GUILTY on all counts” verdict come back on you.
I hope your cell is right next to Bill Cosby’s…and I’ll see you both (and your lawyers) in Hell, where your rapist (excusatory) asses will be MINE.
I recently saw an author state that the reader would never see her characters engaging in unsafe practices, unsafe sex, or putting themselves into dangerous situations.
My first thought was…gosh, what boring books.
I’ve thought about her statement ever since, putting more words to my knee-jerk reaction.
Yes, you WILL see my characters putting themselves into dangerous situations. They’re going to make stupid decisions. Sometimes it’ll come out okay. Sometimes it WON’T.
They’re not always going to use the condom with strangers. They’re not going to use the plastic wrap dental dam for cunnilingus. They’re not always going to make sure everything is perfectly flushed out and squeaky clean before the penis that was in the anus goes back to the vagina.
They’re not going to negotiate what will and won’t happen and they won’t discuss what the safe word will be. They’re not going to sterilize every implement the second it comes out of the toy kit
Because I’m not your sex-ed teacher.
I’m an author of FICTION. The entire POINT of fiction is to be fantastic. That’s where the word FANTASY comes from. It’s supposed to be over the top and exciting, not a lesson in all things personal safety and safe sex.
My characters are going to be stupid and reckless in their lives because you can’t be stupid and reckless in yours. Books are for immersing one’s self into another world where the rules we live by don’t apply, and living vicariously through those characters.
That’s the ENTIRE POINT!
