    So what happens when there's a domestic squabble and she says she got raped even when that wasn't the case? The DNA is going to be there. It will be her word against his and he'll have one hell of a time proving he's innocent.

    Lots of what ifs here. Technically having sexual contact with someone who is asleep is rape, but waking up to that morning blowjob is a treat for married men, but if one wakes up and objects is it rape?

    If there's one slogan that doesn't get old or annoying to me, it's the truth that "rape is rape". Not really up for debate, at least not for any decent human being.

    You don't have to prove your innocence though to not be convicted.

    That kind of rape.

    Is there such a thing as spousal rape?

    Does no mean no in a marriage?

    Or is DICK Black's view reasonable and valid?
    The thing is, how do you prove it?

    The same way that you prove any case in court-with evidence.

    It's one thing to prove sex occurred, but it's another to prove that the sex was rape. How do you do that?

    No means no, in or out of marriage.

    Anyone who doesn't understand that has a serious problem.

    Well I guess waking up to the without prior consent morning BJ is off the table for you. Relying on slogans is a bit like going through life with blinders on.

    I'd imagine the same way you prove sex outside of marriage is rape. There are going to be times when it's unprovable, but that's no reason to remove it from being a crime entirely.
