Sleep and rape, the perfect unicrime.

The following story if so fucking ludicrous it would be laughable if it wasn't so bloody serious.
From the daily Telegraph.

"A BRITISH RAF mechanic who claimed he was sleepwalking when he had sex with a 15-year-old girl has been cleared of rape.

Senior Aircraftsman Kenneth Ecott, 26, wept after a jury took two hours to find he was not responsible for his actions.

Mr Ecott did not deny having sex with the girl, but said he had no memory of it happening.

Instead he insisted he had a condition known as sexsomnia in which sufferers carry out indecent acts in their sleep.

It was this affliction that made him climb naked on top of the girl at a friend's birthday party sleepover in Poole, Dorset, the Bournemouth Crown Court heard.

The girl screamed when she awoke.

Mr Ecott was said to have confessed to the girl's family and apologised for having sex with her.

But when he was arrested in his barracks at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, he told police he was prone to sleepwalking.

He claimed to have been in a state of automatism while with the girl, meaning he was not aware of his actions.

His girlfriend told the court that he had fondled her in bed while asleep.'

Sexsomnia? SEXSOMNIA? That's new to me, but not to the courts it seems, this next one is from 2005,

"A Toronto area man was acquitted this week of sexual assault after a judge ruled he was asleep during the attack, a Canadian newspaper reported.

The acquitted 33-year-old landscaper had met a woman at a party in July. Both had been drinking and fell asleep on a couch.

The woman woke up to find the landscaper having sex with her and pushed him off. He immediately woke up, but told the court he only suspected they had had sex after going to the bathroom and finding he was still wearing a condom.

A sleep expert testified at his trial that the man suffered from sexomnia, a sort of sleep walking that includes sexual acts, likely brought on by alcohol, sleep deprivation and genetics.

The man had previously had “sleep sex” with four girlfriends, the court heard."

Sleep sex? What the fuck is sleep sex? who was asleep him or his girlfriends?

Wouldn't you think that if he knew he had this 'problem' he might reconsider sleeping next to drunk women he had only just met. The whole thing stink to the high heaven. And that RAF guy ADMITTED he had sex with that poor kid. Why did it even go to court?
Sleep groping? Sleep fucking? Sleep raping? What the hell is next, sleep stabbing, sleep shooting? Sleep driving car drunk?
If I killed someone while driving drunk do you think a jury would let me away with it if I said I was asleep? Fuck no. Only sleep rape gets to use that out of jail free card.
Poor kid.
This is an outrage.

The world is fucking mental, it really is, and I don't blame people taking the law into their own hands. If that had have been my child I’d have cut his balls off, perhaps if people where to that a bit more often, the dirt bags might have more reservations. I'm sure you'd get away with it, if you can rape a child and get away with it, serious assault would be minor in comparison. And his girlfriend she is pathetic, she might as well have stood there watching. Incidentally, there is a regular program about that on the Discovery Channel.

That's sickening, people can get away with anything these days if they try and dress it up in some PC-sympathy inducing drivel.

Although it sets a nice precedent for sleep bank robbing...and sleep "sorry but I've spent all the money so I can't give it back" as well.

Well It may not be a real defense but The I was asleep while I murdered them has been used many times often succesful.

"But sleepwalking as a murder defense date back even farther than that. The first known case of such a defense was back in 1846 when Albert Tirrell was charged with the murder of a prostitute, Maria Bickford and setting fire to a brothel. He claimed he had committed the crimes while sleepwalking, and he was acquitted.

It's 2004, and another such case has appeared. Stephen Reitz is accused of bludgeoning his lover, Eva Weinfurtner to death while the couple were vacationing together on Catalina Island in 2001.

Reitz claims he was in the midst of a dream about fighting off an intruder when he attacked the woman and has no memory of the murder."

There is also a Movie called Sleep Murder - Staring Jason (90210) Priestly.

I sleep walk and have done things I have no memory of including getting into people beds, No sex just to sleep so I guess anything is possible.

Mac hawt, I woke up in my kitchen once, so I know folk sleep walk, but I have a very hard time believing in sleep rape.
Either way this man raped that girl. And he's getting off scot free.

Please, if you are aware that you are prone to such things you should take measures to protect yourself and the people around you. That pricks girlfriend said he did it to her, when they established that they should have addressed it. There is no way a person could actively participate in sex and not wake up, I do not believe it, not for a second. Climbing into somebody’s bed is a tad different to engaging in sexual relations.

I see that the second guy's "sleep-sex" also included putting on a condom. Or maybe I'm being too cynical and he always wears a condom just in case. riiiight.

So if you have this *ahem* so called medical condition why are they not required to strap themselves into bed at night with their dicks under lock and key to prevent further rapes?
Oh, right because it's only women we're talking about and we have no right to bodily sovereignty.
The patriarchy rears its ugly head once more, telling women to shut up and take it and telling men that they are slaves to their penis.

I'm a sleep-walker, have been since I was a small child. Never raped anyone though. I sometimes fondle my hubby while asleep, but he doesn't seem to mind usually. I don't understand how the whole "sleep-rape" thing could possibly fly unless both people involved suffered from the same disorder. Just how does one get their dick in you without you realizing what's going on and smacking the shit out of them? That's usually what happens when the hubby tries this on me anyway...

certainly like your website but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts.

Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very troublesome
to tell the reality on the other hand I'll certainly come back again.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My website has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.
