Sweden prosecutes man over bruises received by girl in consensual sex and BDSM session

Sweden flagA Swedish court is to consider the issue of how much sexual violence is legally permitted between two consenting partners in a case involving a 32-year-old man who came into contact with his 16-year-old sex partner (over the Swedish age of consent of 15 ) via a sex website.

The teenager penned a letter declaring that she wanted to be used, abused and thoroughly humiliated . When the pair met the girl was, among other things, locked into a cage and had clamps attached to her breasts, according to a TV4 Malmö news programme.

Police became involved after a relative of the girl noticed the bruises all over her body.

The prosecutor, Ulrika Rogland, has ruled out rape as the parties are accepted to have consented to their sexual liaison. But the court is set to rule on the issue of where the legal limits lie with regards to violence inflicted on another human being, even if they agree to it.

What I want to establish is that even if they say they are in agreement over this then you not allowed to seriously assault someone. It is on this issue that the district court has to issue a ruling, is this aggravated assault and was she able to agree to it? Rogland said to the local Sydsvenskan daily.

Sweden prosecution of man over bruises received by girl in a consensual sex and BDSM session

Sweden flagA 32-year-old man charged with assault after having violent sex with a teenager has appeared in a Malmö courtroom in a case testing how much sexual violence is legally permitted in Sweden between consenting partners.

The 16-year-old girl came in contact with the man through a sadomasochism-themed website and later signed a slave contract in which she consented to being used, abused and thoroughly humiliated .

I want to have a really hard master. Someone who won't wimp out, the teen wrote during their online chat, according to the Aftonbladet newspaper.

During their sexual encounter, which took place in January, the girl allowed herself to be locked in a cage and have clamps attached to her breasts, according to several media reports. The 16-year-old was also hit with whips and rulers, and made to have oral sex until she vomited, according to Aftonbladet.

Police were alerted to the alleged assault when a relative of the teen noticed she had bruises all over her body.

The issue of how much sexual violence is allowed between consensual sex partners has never been heard in the Swedish court system and experts in sadomasochism are expected to be called to testify in the hearing in Malmö district court.

What I want to establish is that even if they say they are in agreement over this then you not allowed to seriously assault someone, prosecutor Ulrika Rogland said. It is on this issue that the district court has to issue a ruling, is this aggravated assault and was she able to agree to it?

In her opening statements on Monday, Rogland claimed the girl's consent to the violent sex should be nullified because the man was aware that she was prone to self-harming behaviour, according to Sydsvenskan.

However the man's attorney,Bo Peterson, claimed that while the 32-year-old knew of the girl's behaviour, he thought had outgrown it.

When the girl arrived at his apartment they discussed anal sex, among other things, as well as what word they would use to signal to the other to stop their activities if the pain became to great.

Update: Acquitted

29th September 2010. Based on article from thelocal.se

A 32-year-old man has been acquitted of assault after having violent sex with a teenager in a landmark case testing how much sexual violence is legally permitted in Sweden between consenting partners.

The Malmö district court acquitted the man on charges of aggravated assault over a weekend of slave-like sex with the then 16-year-old girl. The ruling is taken as a primary legal indication over whether a girl prone to self-harm is able to consent and submit herself to violent sex.

The district court noted in its ruling that valid consent can not apply to aggravated assault, which in general can neither afford freedom from responsibility for the perpetrator. The court considered the level of violence to which the girl was subjected to be reduced to a classification of assault.

The court thus ruled that this was not a case of aggravated assault, and also noted that the girl had issued her consent of her own free will, observing that she had herself taken the initiative in contacting the man.

During their sexual encounter, which took place in January, the girl allowed herself to be locked in a cage and have clamps attached to her breasts, according to several media reports. The 16-year-old was also hit with whips and rulers, and made to have oral sex until she vomited, according to Aftonbladet.

The girl was over 16-years-old and thus above the age of consent and the court ruled that it had not been proven that her age, her history of self-harm, or any other extenuating circumstance, rendered her unable to understand what she was consenting to, or that her consent was meant in all seriousness. The court furthermore observed that the girl had previous experience of BDSM sex and thus knew what she was getting herself into.

 

 Update: Take a Deep Breath...

A Swedish Court of Appeal finds consenting breath play to be illegal


Link Here 31st August 2013  full story: BDSM Consent in Sweden...Charged with assault even with sex partner consent
Sweden flagA Swedish court has ruled that a man acted unlawfully when he strangled two women during sex until they fainted, even though the act was consensual.

The man was initially charged with aggravated assault after engaging in sex acts with two women that included repeated strangulation until the women fainted.

Prosecutors claimed the acts were life threatening and thus should be treated as aggravated assault. However, the Skelleftea District Court disagreed, ruling that his partners' complicity in the dangerous sex acts absolved the man of sole responsibility for their near-strangulation. He was thus convicted of assault, rather than aggravated assault, and sentenced to three months in prison.

Prosecutors appealed the ruling, but the Court of Appeals agreed with the lower court that the act was not aggravated assault as the women, one of whom was strangled to the point of fainting 15 times during separate meetings, were indeed consenting.

The man was sentenced to probation and 100 hours of community service, and the charge was lessened from aggravated assault to assault.
