    Well I agree it does cause problems, but people aren't going to obey, they wouldn't really have to.

    Now, I was originally appalled by this until I did a little research. Turns out laws like this already exist in some forms, because in certain unusual situations, a woman can be deceived into thinking she's sleeping with her boyfriend when it's in fact someone else. Also, as far as I know, not disclosing that you have a sexually transmitted disease has always been frowned upon by the law in most countries. Any reasonable person should be OK with that.

    But the way new laws are being proposed in Australia is a worrying sign of empowerment gone too far. Basically, even talking yourself up or just driving an expensive car to insinuate you have a lot of money, can become a crime if it leads to sex. In other words, if the woman regrets sleeping with you, you committed an act of sexual assault; sex by deception.

    Although this represents an interesting scenario - I would argue that women deceive a lot more than men do. Women have a plethora of accessories, clothing, and other means of seeming more attractive than men do. Makeup, eyeliner, lipstick push-up bras, g-strings, perfume, hair extensions, fake fingernails, stockings, are all common forms of female attire designed solely to make them seem more attractive than they really are. It can easily be claimed that a man was falsely enticed to sleep with a woman because of these things.

    That being said, something tells me these laws will be designed and enforced to err on the side of the woman. In other words, if it happens to a woman, it's sexual assault. If it happens to a man, it's complicated.

    The other issue is proving that the lie did in fact lead to sex. A woman could easily claim that the man's pleasant smell was the main reason she slept with him, but after his deodorant and cologne wore off and his true scent was revealed, she felt deceived. Where (and how) do you draw the line?
    There is no law that says women can lie to men and let men miss their turn. Why do women do it? there ought to be law!
