Sex by Surprise

What Is "Sex by Surprise"?

Believe it or not, sex by surprise is actually not an euphemism for rape. It is sex without a condom after a woman requests it — even if the sex is consensual — and it's fine-able in Sweden by 5,000 kronor (about $715).

This is what WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, is actually accused of, and not rape. Though the rape charges were dropped in August, accusations of rape have been popping up since he became America's most wanted tattletale last week for releasing classified State Department documents.

That drama aside, I am intrigued by sex by surprise. Guys go back on condom promises all the time; if he isn't forcing himself on a woman, isn't she equally at fault?
