About Last Night (Force & Pleasure)





Last night I attended a social function with an interesting mix of people. Guys, do you have any idea how terrible it feels to suffer through a crush for several months; months of thinking, hoping, fantasizing... It's pure agony! And then you finally get to meet and talk to this shining object of your mind's desire and the disappointment couldn't have been more overwhelming? Hot damn! Dude spent so much time trash-talking a lot of ladies at the party, and that's just wrong. If you don't respect women, don't share those sentiments with a woman! I'm sorry I just had to vent.  

Venting done... For most of the night I found myself being beside a particular chic. We somehow got to talking about personal matters. Then she says to me that she's been carrying a burden, one of guilt and shame. I have her permission to post this btw. 

We all know rape is a very serious issue. There's nothing as nerve-wracking and gag-inducing as a man who says "it's not rape if she enjoyed it". I've heard a few fellows say this and it's very pathetic. (Admittedly some women have rape fantasies, but those are just fantasies that are often conveniently devoid of the mental and emotional trauma, oh, the physical ones too). In any case, yes a guy who suggests that someone deserves to be raped because they might enjoy it, or that if a woman enjoyed rape then she has no right to complain, ought to be beaten with a stick!

But what happens when it's coming from the mouth of a woman. A woman who isn't quite sure if she was a victim or not, because although it was forceful, although she begged him to stop, although she said no, although there were even bruises in the course of the scuffle, it turned out to be probably the best sex of her life...

How then does she come out and say she was raped, especially when she didn't want it to stop...

I was surprised to be at the receiving end of such personal information from a virtual stranger, but alcohol does loosen the tongue. And yes, that burden of guilt and shame that she's been carrying is borne because the very reprehensible and criminal act many (women) fight against, was one that she found very pleasurable.

She didn't know what to make of it, and not neither do I. Would you call that rape? Logically and legally speaking, once force is used and penetration occurs it IS rape. But when you find yourself grabbing him tight and begging him not to stop, is it still rape? Does she indeed deserve to feel guilty and ashamed of herself? And now the question that kills her; could she still accuse him of rape? What do you think?

  1. "Logically and legally speaking, once force is used and penetration occurs it IS rape"...
    Well, let's just say it started off as rape but ended in pleasure which doesn't still eliminate d fact that it was a forceful attempt(rape)!
    Having said that, accusing him should depends on the way she personally feels about d whole thing! I say he shld still be accused, she myt feel otherwise so...

  2. Well, I feel there isn't any clear way of handling this. Like you have emphasized if force is used and penetration occurs, it is rape. Several question looms still, including could a singular sexual encounter both be rape and consenting sex, where does one draw the line at rape because clearly there was some form of pleasure from both parties and if rape is proven, does she have credible evidence in form of semen stained cloths, pictures of bruises consistent with rape victims, corroborating witnesses etc. As with all law cases, precedence would be a good starting point.

    In addition, I'd advice she sees a qualified/certified Shrink or counselor (preferably an expert in sex matters) to get better perspective on the encounter.

    Also, she might be more attuned to BDSM as a form of sexual expression (she might want to consider educating herself more on this area).

    1. @ your last paragraph; one of those aspects of sexuality Africans refuse to acknowledge.

  3. It's still rape. Her body had an involuntary response, that's all. If a man is raped he still gets hard and has orgasms. Still rape.

  6. Thelma this ur short gown barely covering ur bum is calling one to just bend u over, raise the thing and rear end you into your island of bliss.

    Forcefully or consentually I know the words "harder" "harder" " no, don't stop" will eventually be blurted out ur mouth if it's my cock. Will that be rape?

  7. It is rape,forceful entry,physical and psychological trauma are major characteristics. The fact that she enjoyed it only opened her eyes to a sexual preference. BDSM is a sexual orientation but at that, it can still be tagged rape if one of the party involved didn't give his/her consent. So even if it is her fantasy, the fact that she wasn't a consenting partner rules it as rape to me

  10. I think its still rape cos it wasn't consensual. Like Chrisyinks and Lilia said, the fact that she enjoyed it simply means that shes more open to BDSM.

    As for acusimg him, if she did not get a rape kit, its a "he said, she said" situation and coupled with the fact she at some point begged the guy not to stop, it will be very very hard to proove that she was indeed raped.

  11. It is rape, however the proving this will be severally difficult and embarrassing mostly for the lady. It's really painful seeing the confusion of emotions she is passing through.

  12. Was there force? Yes! Did she beg him to stop? Yes! Did she say no? Yes! Was there a scuffle? Yes! Were there visible bruises? Yes! I don't know what else she's looking for? As someone said the fact that she enjoyed it was just her body betraying her. As someone also rightly said if you rape a man he still get aroused which results in an election and he still hits climax.
    The guilt and shame she feels is because she knows without a doubt that she was actually raped. She's looking for someone to tell her that she wasn't and that's not possible. Some rape victims ended up enjoying it but that doesn't change the fact that they were victimized.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on).
