A man on trial for rape for allegedly refusing to wear a condom on the third time he had sex with a woman in a one-night stand has told the jury it was 100 per cent consensual.
Imomotimi Wilson, 30, met his alleged victim in a pub and she agreed to go back to his house but told him she would only have sex if he used protection.
They had consensual sex twice but on the third occasion claims that Wilson failed to use a condom.
The woman, a 40-year-old, said Wilson treated her ‘like a piece of meat’ as the alleged attack took place.
She said he held her hands over her head and told her ‘if you love me you’ll do it’ before raping her for 15-20 seconds.
But giving evidence at his trial at Cambridge Crown Court Wilson said ‘she said stop and that’s when I stopped’.
He said: ‘She said I feel like having sex again and I said “Yes, I feel like having sex with you as well again but there is no condom”.
‘She was romancing me, touching and kissing, and I said no, I do not want to do that because there is no condom.
‘She started kissing me again and then I penetrated her. I believed 100 per cent it was consensual.
‘Then she said stop and that’s when I stopped. There were three seconds of penetration.’
Interesting question, eh?
At one end of the argument we might have the loonies insisting that as it was penile penetration of the vagina then of course this was rape: for that always is. At the other we might have an unfortunate misunderstanding of consent. One quickly dealt with when the truth became apparent.
And the jury is going to say what do you think?
