Are we to believe that he "tricked her" into having sex with him for 3 years? And, when speaking of an adult female, does that equal rape?
Now, if we were talking about a minor, rubbing, touching, kissing, etc, would be considered "physical coercion." However, we are talking about an adult female here.
Coercion however is a much more complex word.
I once had a conversation with someone who insisted and military recruiters coerce people into enlisting in the military. This is an absurd position since a recruiter only sells the military much like a car salesman might try to sell you a car whether it is right for you or not.
If someone insists that other wise benign actions are coercion then there is no changing their mind. Most reasonble people would have to hear the details to judge whether it was really coercion or not. For example if an employer offers a promotion in exchange for sex is it blackmail? Of course it is. Is it sexual harrassment? Of couse it is. Is it coercion? Kind of doubtful.
Hmmm. I'd buy rape once, maybe even twice. After that she's complicit.
The rape charge reminds me of the police investigation of Masaryk's death after the Communist takeover in Czechoslovakia in 1948. His body was found on the street bound and gagged after a fall from an upper story window. Police determined the death was a suicide.
