A medical student convicted of indecent assault for grabbing a woman’s breasts during consensual sex has had his conviction quashed.
Philip Queree, 37, met the woman known as Miss X, on Tinder and they had what was described as “rough” sex on their second date.
But Queree was later taken to court for repeatedly grabbing her breasts too hard and pulling her hair while they had intercourse.
Despite consenting to sex with Queree, the victim told him she did not want her breasts touched.
She accused him of using “excessive force” and causing her pain and bruising even after she told him to stop.
There is indeed a line, of course. Consenting to sex does not mean consent to buggery, nor does consent once mean consent to exactly the same act 30 minutes later and so on.
Consenting to sex and not to having titties touched is perhaps the other side of that line. You know, maybe?
Do note that the quashing was not that he hadn’t assaulted her by being too rough or whatever. Rather, that it’s not an indecent assault. A common assault charge might stand, but indecent not, on the grounds that touching titties seems to be, reasonably enough, within the definition of consenting to sex.
