Ottawa, Canada: The court has declared that it is a crime not to use a condom when a man and a woman engage in sexual intercourse without the permission of the woman concerned.
A man and a woman have been friends in Canada. They started dating online in 2017. After meeting in person, both have become familiar. Later, when the man asked if the two could engage in physical intercourse, the concerned woman said that she would consent if she wore a condom.
First, the man says yes to the woman and engages in sexual intercourse wearing a condom. Later, on the same day, the man had sexual intercourse for the second time without wearing a condom against the woman’s will.
The girl was shocked to realize this after some time. In this regard, the woman filed a case in the court there. The country’s trial court dismissed the woman’s complaint. The petition was dismissed after the judge accepted the plea of the accused man that he had sexual intercourse with the will and consent of the woman.
In this case, the woman appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada against this. It is not proper for us to act against the will of the woman during physical intercourse after hearing the case.
Even after the woman has already clearly expressed her will to the man in this regard, it is a crime for him to act in defiance of it. The court opined that not using a condom against a woman’s will is considered a sex offence.
