    And that attitude is why rapists go free. Congratulations on being part of the problem.

    Does the order really matter?

    If she takes the money, and then lets the guy have sex with her, that's clearly prostitution. We agree on that.

    If she has sex with the guy against her will, then takes the money and doesn't turn him in, then she has consented in arrears. In other words, by taking the money and not telling, she's consented to the sex.

    So again, she has sex for money, which makes her a prostitute.

    I don't care, I just think it's funny. People who give copout answers are funny. It's like if I asked whether you prefer cake or ice cream, and you answer "both."

    Actually, in your case, I guess the answer would be "waffles."

    You're stretching things faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar beyond what is the parameters of the exercise.

    Consent was not given at the time of the rape, therefore it is rape by all definitions.

    Regardless of what happens after, consent cannot be given in hindsight.

    Re: Would you stay silent on rape if you were offered much money ?

    I would take it if the contract stated clearly "On Jan 29th 2015, I raped (insert name). This is what happened, this is what I did to her. I am giving her (fill in the blank money" and in return, she will never testify against me". Signed (fill in the blank rapist)."

    As soon as the money was in hand....I would have someone take the letter to the District Attorney.

    Realistically, you never know how you will really respond until you are faced with the situation.

    I would like to think that at this point in my life I would testify to get the scum off the street.

    If you did not care, then you would not have even posted the response to my post.


    Whatever...bye bye.
