Myths About Date Rape 

Prior consent means that there is always consent. This is a myth because there must be established mutual consent every single time any sexual activity is to take place. Consent is not a one-time-only agreement.

Sex is owed for dinner or for a night on the town. This is not true because sex is never owed. It is something that two people want to do together – not an obligation.

Sexual assault doesn’t happen in married relationships. This is false because whenever mutual consent does not exist, sexual assault does exist.

Sexual assault really only involves intercourse. This is not true because sexual assault can involve many sexual things without intercourse. Unwanted sexual touch or “accidentally” brushing against someone might both fall into the category of sexual assault.
