Weird question but is this considered rape?

Let's say you finish doing it with someone and things seem done for the night. You're just laying on the bed and then they out of nowhere grab your legs or move you and then go for another round. You werent expecting it to happen but it did

It's rape if you say no or otherwise make it clear that you are not willing, such that a reasonable person would understand that you are not consenting.

[@583960,Blueberries] So then rape would be hard to prove, particularly if you'd just had complicit and consenting sex and you made no particular show of withdrawing consent. It is not necessary under law to gain explicit consent before every sexual act. It can be reasonably assumed that consent is there in certain circumstances.

Do you feel like you were raped?

[@583960,Blueberries] It all starts with you. If you feel that it was rape then you have a right under the law to pursue charges and a conviction. Just be sure that you are being reasonable because the law focuses a lot on what reasonable people would think and do in a given situation. No man is a mind reader, or woman for that matter. If a woman were to grab her husband as soon as he walks in the door and start touching him intimately, he could claim sexual assault if verbal consent was a legal requirement. What he can do though is to communicate. If he doesn't want it at that time, for any reason, then he can say no. This obviously changes if threat is employed to ensure consent, but that is where the actions of a reasonable person come into play. A reasonable person wouldn't assume that sex under threat is necessarily complicit.

Most of the times, the worst things happening to us it is us who allow them to happen.
Next time if you want something to happen differently, then say something! find a solid way to communicate it!

Could be but since you showed no signs of struggle or said no he isn't considered a rapist

[@934648,Nanori] That's what I was thinking but it's confusing

If you didn’t consent, then it’s rape. Simple.
