THE FORM OF SEXUAL ABUSE THAT IS RARELY DISCUSSED – “SNEAKING” OFF A CONDOM DURING SEX

It’s trending among men, and it’s completely wrong

Probably one of the most common forms of sexual abuse is one of the ones least talked about – because most men and even some women don’t actually consider it harsh enough to call it out as it is.


Removing a condom during sex without a woman’s consent is abuse, and it’s wrong.

The act is known by slang as “stealthing” – and it has gained quite some popular support by men in online forums.

Women describe the feeling as being violated.

Many find it strange to call the act “rape” as the intercourse itself is with consent, but at the same time it is a clear violation of a set boundary set by a woman.

Moreover, the act places a woman at a risk that she was not willing to take – risk of pregnancy, risk of catching an STI or HIV.

While stealthing is not considered “rape” by law in the US, it does raise many legal questions which need to be addressed.

In January, a Swiss court convicted a man of rape for removing his condom during sex without the consent of his partner, as it was clear that she would have not have agreed to sexual intercourse with him had she known it would have been removed.

Perhaps it’s time the rest of the world takes lead in fighting for women’s rights and putting an end to men assuming control over decisions regarding women’s bodies.
