This entire section is taboo for discussing because it is believed to be inappropriate or to crude for other people's consumption into their brains and their spirit corrupting their hearts and souls. This section is only meant to inform and enlighten a person so they may make an informed decision for themselves without be corrupted taught with negative intensions.

throughout the world we all deal with different forms of sex and to face it with open eyes and not judge it for being positive or negative but for being what it is and nothing more.

Sex is sex and we understand that it is you combine it with emotion with sex than it become comfort or pain. These thoughts are all over the adult world. from good people to people who traffic humans. (WE DO NOT TRAFFIC HUMAN). We put this page online so that there is no confusion or deception of other people believing something that is not true. We are simple folk and would like to live in peace teaching one another the ways of life from around the world.

We here understand that as human beings we are prone for sexual desire, and we want to be able to hold onto what we enjoy. this section teaches us some of the primal lifestyle humans experience throughout their lives without human contact. 

We are not trying to promote porn/ sexual addiction. We are nothing more than a sex education teacher for lack of a better term. We learn from each other as consenting adults. Most people only deal missionary positions but there are those people who need this section to enhance their relationships or personal life. For that matter I will be posting the legal files of Michigan as well to show the legality of everything we are posting.

              Rape laws in the United States

              From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
               

              Rape laws vary across the United States jurisdictions. However, rape is federally defined (even though individual state definitions may differ) for statistical purposes as:[1]

              Penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with anybody part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.

              — Uniform Crime Report

              Terminology[edit]

              Laws use various terms to define aspects of instances of rape or sexual assault, including the acts themselves, the alleged perpetrator and the alleged victim, and whether they are or have been married to each other or someone else.

              • Penetrative acts:
                • rape, or carnal knowledge (generally vaginal, sometimes also anal or oral)
                • sodomy, unnatural intercourse, or crime against nature (only anal, generally between two men, sometimes also a man to a woman) [Note 1]
                • sexual abuse (when an accuser was incapable of consenting due to age, or otherwise in an unequal power relation with the accused)
                • sexual assault (can also be non-penetrative)
                • sexual battery
                • sexual intercourse or (mis)conduct (generally vaginal, sometimes also oral and anal)
                • deviate sexual intercourse or (mis)conduct (only oral and anal, sometimes any form of sexual intercourse with animals)
                • infamous crime against nature (only oral and anal, and any form of sexual intercourse with animals; unclear whether it prohibits non-penetrative cunnilingus)
              • Non-penetrative acts: indecent contact, sexual assault (can also be penetrative)
              • Accused: accused, actor, author, defendant, (alleged) perpetrator, person, suspect
              • Accuser: accuser, complainant, person, the other person, (alleged) victim
              • Husband (male) or wife (female): spouse, spousal or marital (adjective)

              Furthermore, each state or federal agency may define sexual consent differently, if they do so at all. Some may only define the circumstances in which a person is incapable of consenting and assume implied consent on a person in every other situation. They often require said person to resist any unwanted sexual advances, or that these advances only become criminal when the accused can be shown to have used some kind of force or coercion (which the accuser was incapable of resisting – though this is not always required) to commit the unwanted sexual advances upon the accuser. Other U.S. states and federal agencies afford each person voluntary, freely given or affirmative consent, which must first be obtained by someone else before being allowed to have sex with said person, and that this consent can be revoked at any time by said person.[2]

              Federal[edit]

              Civilian[edit]

              Federal law applies in federal areas and in cases of displacement between states:[3]

              Offense Article Mandatory Sentencing Sexual abuse18 U.S. Code § 2242Life without parole [Note 2] or any other term Aggravated sexual abuse by force or threat18 U.S. Code § 2241(a)Life without parole or any other term Aggravated sexual abuse by other means18 U.S. Code § 2241(b)Life without parole or any other term Aggravated sexual abuse with children18 U.S. Code § 2241(c)Life imprisonment without parole or any term not less than 30 years.

              Military[edit]

              The United States military has an offense of rape and another of sodomy.[4] The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) of the United States Armed Forces regards sex without consent as rape or sexual assault; it provides a definition of consent and examples of illegitimate inferrals of consent in § 920. Art. 120. "Rape and sexual assault generally" (g) 7 and 8.[5]

              District of Columbia[edit]

              In the District of Columbia, "sexual act" means "sexual intercourse".[6]

              Offense Article Mandatory sentencing First Degree Sexual Abuse DC Code § 22–3002Up to 30 years (sentence can exceed 30 years if there are aggravating circumstances) or life without parole Second Degree Sexual Abuse DC Code § 22–3003Up to 20 years First Degree Child Sexual Abuse DC Code § 22–3008Up to 30 years (sentence can exceed 30 years if there are aggravating circumstances) or life without parole First degree sexual abuse of a secondary education student DC Code § 22–3009.03Up to 10 years First degree sexual abuse of a ward, patient, client, or prisoner DC Code § 22–3013Up to 10 years First degree sexual abuse of a patient or client DC Code § 22–3015Up to 10 years

              States[edit]

                Coercion-based law (all penetrative sex)
                Consent-based law (anal and oral sex)
                Consent-based law (vaginal, anal and oral sex)
                Coercion-based law (non-penetrative sex)
                Consent-based law (non-penetrative sex)

              Some U.S. states recognize penetrative sex without consent by the victim and without the use of force by the perpetrator as a crime (usually called 'rape'). Other states do not recognize this as a crime; their laws stipulate that the perpetrator must have used some kind of force or coercion (physical violence (that results in demonstrable physical injury), threats against the victim or a third party, or some other form of coercion) in order for such nonconsensual penetrative sex to amount to a crime.[2] Similarly, some states recognize non-penetrative sex acts (contact such as fondling or touching a person's intimate parts, or exposure of a body or sexual activity) without consent by the victim and without the use of force by the perpetrator as a crime, while other states do not.[2]

              Alabama[edit]

              Main article: Rape law in Alabama

              Alabama divides its dispositions against forced sexual intercourse in sodomy and rape; in addition, the crime of "sexual torture" describes "rape by instrumentation".[7][8]

              Arizona[edit]

              Arizona sentencing laws make the prison term dependent on several factors such as the age of the victim or the criminal record of the offender.[9]

              All crimes listed here are also punishable by California’s “One-Strike Law”, Penal Code 667.61, which has a list of aggravating circumstances (such as a prior sex crime conviction, or the employment of torture during the crime), which if the aggravating circumstance is found true, increases the base term to a life sentence with parole eligibility depending on the age of the victim and the number of aggravating circumstances found true. (Although dependent on the facts of the case, parole eligibility will either be set at 15 years served, 25 years served, or in extreme cases life without the possibility of parole.)

              As of October 2021, the spousal rape section was repealed by the Legislature. Spousal rape is now prosecuted the same as other rape charges.

              Colorado[edit]

              Sexual assault describes rape in the law of Colorado, and several factors make this crime, normally classified as class 3 felony, to be punished more harshly.[12]

                • The defendant has previously been convicted of first- or second-degree rape.
                • There were three or more separate victims.

              Florida[edit]

              In Florida, rape is denominated "sexual battery." Of note, the offense of capital sexual battery cover cases where the offender is above 18 and the victim below 12.[15]

              Offense Article Mandatory Sentencing Statutory sexual battery Fla. Stat. § 794.011(8)(a) Up to 5 years Sexual battery FLA. Stat. § 794.011(2)(b), Fla. Stat. § 794.011(5)(b), Fla.

Stat. § 800.02Up to 60 days [Note 1]

              Section 794.011 of the Florida Statutes defines "consent" as 'intelligent, knowing, and voluntary consent and does not include coerced submission. "Consent" shall not be deemed or construed to mean the failure by the alleged victim to offer physical resistance to the offender.' Any sexual act performed on a person without their freely given or affirmative consent is punishable as 'sexual battery' to various degrees (depending on the perpetrator's and victim's ages, and whether no, some, or potentially deadly physical force or coercion was used).[16][17]

              Georgia[edit]

              In Georgia, the offense of rape is consolidated in only one offense, and a separate charge of sodomy has been defined.[18]

              Illinois[edit]

              In Illinois, the term of "criminal sexual assault" is used to describe what would be termed rape in the usual language.[21]

              Offense Article Mandatory Sentencing Criminal Sexual Assault Ch. 720 Ill. Comp. Stat. 5/11-1.20Between 4 and 15 years [Note 9] Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault Ch. 720 Ill. Comp.

              According to the 2012 Criminal Code of the Illinois Compiled Statutes, Section 720 ILCS 5/11-1.70, "consent" is 'a freely given agreement to the act of sexual penetration or sexual conduct in question. Lack of verbal or physical resistance or submission by the victim resulting from the use of force or threat of force by the accused shall not constitute consent. The manner of dress of the victim at the time of the offense shall not constitute consent. A person who initially consents to sexual penetration or sexual conduct is not deemed to have consented to any sexual penetration or sexual conduct that occurs after he or she withdraws consent during the course of that sexual penetration or sexual conduct.' However, the lack of consent is not sufficient to prosecute anyone for a sex crime (except in very specific cases in which the victim is deemed incapable of consenting, namely Section 11-1.20 (a)(2), Section 11-1.50.(a)(2), Section 11-9.2.(e), and Section 11-9.5.(c)), making Illinois' rape legislation coercion-based (Section 11-1.20 (a)(1)).[22][23]

              Minnesota[edit]

              In Minnesota the offense is divided into five degrees, of which the first three cover rape.[33]

              Offense Article Mandatory Sentencing Criminal Sexual Conduct in the First-Degree Minn. Stat. § 609.342Up to 30 years Criminal Sexual Conduct in the Second-Degree Minn. Stat. § 609.343Up to 25 years Criminal Sexual Conduct in the Third-Degree Minn. Stat. § 609.344Up to 15 years

              Until July 2019, in Minnesota sexual violence occurring between spouses at the time they cohabit or between unmarried partners could be prosecuted only if there was force or threat of thereof, due to exemptions created by Article 609.349 'Voluntary relationships'[34] which stipulated that certain sexual offenses do not apply to spouses (unless they are separated), and neither do they apply to unmarried cohabitants. These are offenses that deal with situations where the lack of consent is due to the incapacity of consent of the victim, including where the victim was drugged by the perpetrator. These situations, which were excluded from prosecution, are where the victim was "mentally impaired, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless". The term "mentally incapacitated" is defined as a person who "under the influence of alcohol, a narcotic, anesthetic, or any other substance, administered to that person without the person's agreement, lacks the judgment to give a reasoned consent to sexual contact or sexual penetration". (see Article 609.341 for definitions).[35] In 2019, these exemptions were repealed.[36][37]

              In 2021 the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that people who drink alcohol or take drugs of their own free will before being sexually assaulted do not meet the Minnesota legislature’s definition of mentally incapacitated.[38]

              New York[edit]

              In New York the crime of rape and Criminal Sexual Act are divided in three degrees; moreover, the offense of "Sexual Misconduct" describes any sexual act done without the victim's consent.[47]

              Offense Article Mandatory sentencing Sexual Misconduct N.Y. Penal Law § 130.20Up to 364 days Rape in the Third-Degree N.Y. Penal Law § 130.25Up to 4 years Rape in the Second-Degree N.Y.

Penal Law § 130.70Between 5 and 15 years.

              Sexual offenses are defined as 'sexual [acts] committed without consent of the victim'. Lack of consent results from 4 possible causes: forcible compulsion, incapacity to consent, the victim not expressly or implicitly acquiescing (in sexual abuse and forcible touching cases), or expression of lack of consent (in sexual intercourse and sexual oral or anal conduct cases). Consent itself is not defined; Section 130.5 of the New York Penal Law only stipulates that a person who doesn't want to have sex needs to be clear enough in their words and acts, so that 'a reasonable person in the actor's situation would have understood such person's words and acts as an expression of lack of consent to such act under all the circumstances'. This description doesn't make clear whether affirmative consent is required to have sex (or conversely, whether a lack of affirmative consent can result in a sexual offense), but both Section 130.25 Rape in the third degree (3) and Section 130.40 Criminal sexual act in the third degree (3) do provide this possibility in the form of catch-all clauses by stating that, whenever there is a 'lack of consent (...) by reason of some factor other than incapacity to consent', this is sufficient for the sexual act to amount to a crime.[48][49]

              North Carolina[edit]

              In North Carolina, the offenses of Rape and Sexual Offense cover cases of forced penetration.[50]

              In the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, 'Section 3107. Resistance not required' stipulates that 'the alleged victim need not resist the actor in prosecutions under this chapter'. The Statutes do not define consent, but if an actor engages in sexual intercourse or deviate sexual intercourse, or aggravated indecent assault, with a complainant without the latter's consent, this makes the actor punishable under 'Section 3124.1. Sexual assault', or 'Section 3125. Aggravated indecent assault', respectively. Furthermore, mental disability can render a person incapable of consenting to sexual intercourse, deviate sexual intercourse, or aggravated indecent assault, thus making an actor who engages in these acts with a mentally disabled complainant punishable under 'Section 3121. Rape', 'Section 3123. Involuntary deviate sexual intercourse', or 'Section 3125. Aggravated indecent assault', respectively.[57][58]

              Texas[edit]

              In Texas, rape is described as Sexual Assault.[63]

              Offense Article Mandatory Sentencing Sexual Assault Tex. Penal Code Ann. § 22.011Between 2 and 20 years Aggravated Sexual Assault Tex. Penal Code Ann. § 22.021Between 5 and 99 years.

              Section 22.011 (a) defines sexual assault as an actor performing various forms of sexual penetration of another person's body without that person's consent. Section 22.011 (b) implies that a person's consent is always present, except in 12 specified circumstances that render a person incapable of consenting, such as being forced or coerced with violence or threats by the actor (possibly because of the unequal power balance between the actor and the other person), unconscious or 'physically unable to resist', or having a 'mental disease or defect'. Although Subsection (b)(3) and (4) could be interpreted as requiring the other person to resist the sexual assault, in the 2016 Orgain v. State case the Second District Court of Appeals ruled that sexual assault is defined by the attacker's use of force or coercion, not by the victim's resistance.[64] Texas sexual assault law is therefore coercion-based: the actor requires no freely given consent or affirmative consent from the other person, and the other person cannot freely revoke their implied permanent consent, unless they can satisfy one of the 12 specified circumstances. In other words: if the other person claims not to have wanted to have sex with the actor but cannot be demonstrated to have been incapable of consenting, and the actor cannot be demonstrated to have used some kind of force or coercion, it is not sexual assault under Texas state law. [65]
