Report says 'stealthing' is a deadly new sex trend

A report from the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law says that there's a dangerous non-consensual sex trend called "stealthing."

"Stealthing" is when a man secretly takes off his condom in the middle of sex. Lead author of the study Alexandra Brodsky argues that doing this is a form of sexual assault and should be treated as such.

Brodsky also found that there's a whole online community of "stealthers," where men encourage each other to secretly slip their condoms off.

The "stealthers" are both gay and straight, and believe it's a man's right to spread his seed.

Brodsky said:

“One of my goals with the article, and in proposing a new statute, is to provide a vocabulary and create ways for people to talk about what is a really common experience that just is too often dismissed as just ‘bad sex’ instead of ‘violence.'”

Not only does this put people at a high risk of infection or getting pregnant, Brodsky says "stealthing" causes the same type of emotional, physical, and financial harm that violent sex-acts cause.

In January a court in Switzerland convicted a man of rape after he took off his condom without telling his partner. The court decided that the woman would've said no to sex if she knew the condom was taken off.

Could we soon have rulings like that in America? Be honest about condoms, people.
