Rape is often thought of as a forced act of intercourse by a stranger on the street. That does happen, of course, but in most cases rape is perpetrated by someone the victim knows. It involves any forced oral, anal or vaginal penetration, and that includes by a spouse. A basic component of any rape is the giving of consent, which is a very grey area in the prosecution and defense of spousal rape as well as many other sex crimes.

Consent may be lacking in instances such as the following:

  • Forcible compulsion, i.e., threat of physical force
  • Physical helplessness, i.e., unconscious or in any powerless condition
  • Mental incapacitation, i.e., being given alcohol or other drugs
  • "No means no" clause, i.e., expressing non-consent in a reasonably understood way
