Understanding What Constitutes Date Rape

Date rape is described as sexual assault by someone known to the victim, generally a boyfriend or girlfriend, or a person seen socially, such as at social events, parties, outings, or at clubs. This type of rape or sexual assault can include physical or verbal threats or intimidation as well as alcohol or drugs used to coerce the victim into unwanted or un-consented sexual activity.

The sexual misconduct can include sexual intercourse, oral sex, or other types of sexual contact. The victim may be too drunk or drugged to understand what has occurred. The victim may also initially agree to the sex act but later have a change of mind which is overruled by the other party through force.

The underlying element in date rape is that the victim alleges that he or she did not consent to the sexual act. Women are the most common victims of alleged date rape. Men, however, can also be victims of this crime, most often from other men.
