MP backs off on sex 'contracts'

South Australian Independent MP Ann Bressington says comments she made about men needing signed consent from women to protect themselves from false rape allegations were tongue in cheek.

Ms Bressington made the comments in the South Australian Parliament yesterday and supported them on radio again today in her rejection of proposed changes to SA rape laws.

It could become an offence to continue a sex act with someone after consent if they later changed their mind.

[While you were blowing your load?]

She says the law would make men who are accused of rape guilty until proved innocent.

Ms Bressington now said she was not serious in her Parliamentary comment about introducing formal contracts, but she said men may not have an alternative defence.

"Having to have a consensual sex contract is ridiculous but having these laws that don't protect men's rights are also ridiculous," she said.

"I think we need to be more mindful when we're putting through legislation that every stakeholder in the community is protected."

Quote: When yes means yes. No need to back off Ann you've hit the nail right on the head and this law would be just another draconian law. Guys get yourself a black book of ready to sign contracts and keep it handy. Any woman who wants sex get her to sign it and then have sex. Make sure the contract stipulates after you blow your load.
