Today’s NY Times – Is Sex by Deception a Form of Rape?

Kudos to Abby Ellin for getting this right!! As an author about a very contentious subject, I’m often concerned about my words getting twisted, but Ms. Ellin was thorough about the important points and spot-on in the message she’s conveyed.

The #FGKIA definition for consent, “Freely Given, Knowledgeable and Informed Agreement,” is the REAL definition for consent.  We need to drive #FGKIA into the consciousness of society! Adopting this language into law will not only open society’s eyes to defrauding victims of sex, but will help conquer all forms of sexual assault! We can no longer tolerate our legislators picking and choosing specific types of sexual assaults to prosecute, when ALL FORMS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT IS – WAS – AND FOREVER WILL BE A CRIME!

Failure to recognize this definition not only impacts sex by deception victims, but prevents society from understanding what actually constitutes rape.

For the NY Times to be dealing with the issue of sexual assault by deception is a huge step forward to enlighten society. Please read this article and write your opinion in the comment section. Use your voice to make the world a safer place!

  1. Hi Joyce. Kudos for the pioneering work you’re doing with raising social awareness toward changing the law. I work with many who have had this experience of sexual exploitation. It is no less than traumatizing in the full sense of the diagnosis, and as psychologically damaging as physically forced rape. Its life altering effects are prolonged and difficult to heal.

    1. Thanks Mary Ann- and congratulations on the healing efforts you make by working with survivors of domestic abuse. Little by little, the world is becoming aware of the psychological impacts of coercive control and manipulation at the hands of predators who lack conscience and empathy. I hope by changing our laws we can greatly reduce the numbers of victims who fall prey to cruelty. As I’m sure you know, offenders won’t stop on their own. Holding them accountable by law is the only way to deter them.

  2. Sex by deception is a form of rape. People who use trickery or deception to undermine ones self determination over their bodies should have consequences. There is sincere trauma a associated with defrauding someone of their sexual sanctity. Committing sex by fraud calls for deceit and it is very harmful. Sex by fraud is far from seduction. It is a sexual assault against the victim. When the offender deliberately lies, the victim has no clue that their decision is based on lies. And what do you do when law enforcement overlooks Rape by fraud?
