– Avoid one-night stands if you are drunk as a man, says lawyer Kristina Bandrup in the SVT program “Sverige möts”.

The Consent Act of 2018 means that men will be convicted of “negligent rape” if they have sex with a woman who afterwards claims that she did not voluntarily participate in any of the “phases” of the sexual act. So-called reverse burden of proof applies.

– If you are suspected of rape, you have a burden of explanation as a man and you must be able to fulfill it, says Kristina Bandrup.

– It is quite unfair, verbally weak men are judged, in my opinion, she continues.

Rather than giving a more equal legal process, the man has been given an increased burden of explanation by the law, according to Kristina Bandrup.

– It there are many examples where you change parts of the sex act and you think you have consent, but then it becomes a report, she says.

Equality Minister Paulina Brandberg (L), however, defends the feminist law.

< p>– I think it is very important that a man as a woman should not have to put up physical resistance in order for it to become a rape. It should not be a presumption that women's bodies are accessible if there is no physical resistance, says the minister in the program.
