Krieghund: If the men had told her they would pay her afterwards, then had sex with her and didn't pay I would call that theft of services.

But according to the article that wasn't what happened. The men said they weren't going to pay, the woman said then she wouldn't have sex, and then they forced her to at gun point. That's rape.

The actual sexual experiences are much different in the two scenarios.

Yeah, very.  Sex at gunpoint is rape regardless.

This has taught me a valuable lesson:
Pay her, fark her, then catch her before she gets in her car and rob her at gunpoint to get your money back.  Then it really IS just theft.

blindio: So by that line of thinking, once a woman agrees to sex she can no longer withdraw consent? I mean, that's what the Judge is saying right?  She agreed to sex, so she's obligated to it, and if the terms of the sex change than it's a contract dispute?

Isn't it always a contract dispute?

 "Yahweh said to Hosea: Go, marry a whore, and get children with a whore, for the country itself has become nothing but a whore by abandoning Yahweh" (Hosea 1:2).

Thanks, Obama.

Ima4nic8or: Don't get me wrong. I am no issue with sex workers.  If that is what they want to do it is their business, both literally and figuratively.  I just don't like the logical inconsistency of on the one hand saying the vagina is  just an object to be bartered and on the other hand claiming that someone else using it is deeply personal.

Very well said.

So let me ask you: When *did* you perform your first rape-murder?

"You would have sex with me for a hundred dollars?"
"No, go away asshole!"
"How about a thousand dollars?"
"Are you crazy?  No!"
"Okay, I'm insulting you.  How about twenty thousand dollars?"
"Are you serious?"
"Absolutely.  Would you have sex with me for twenty thousand dollars?"
"I guess..."
"Okay!" *pulls out gun* "Now take off your clothes or I'll kill you...this is an armed robbery."

SpdrJay: So if I go into Wendy's and rip off the cashiers arm and eat it, it is theft of services too?

Only if the cashier's arm was originally available for purchase.
