EQUALITY 4 MEN

Are men really recording sex in case they have to prove it wasn’t rape….?

Recording Sex to Prove Consent

Men wrongly accused of rape have been able to prove their innocence after producing mobile phone footage showing that they had consensual sex. Men who have been wrongly accused of rape by women they didn’t have sex with have also been saved by their mobile phones, according to a report on false allegations by the Crown Prosecution Service.

In one case three men  tried to give a woman a lift home from a nightclub but physically removed her from the car when she failed to give them meaningful directions.

One of the men filmed what happened on his mobile telephone, because he had an instinct that a false allegation might be made against them. The footage showed the suspect being lifted from the car and the car driving off. On the footage the men can be heard asking her, and the suspect is heard accepting, that the men had not done anything to her.

The woman later admitted to the police that the rape allegation was false and she had made it up because she was angry at being left by the side of the road.

In another recent case a cab driver wrongfully accused of raping a passenger was able to prove his innocence thanks to a recording he made of the journey on his phone.

The judge in this case said: “This was outrageous behaviour by the defendant against a wholly innocent man who had been saved by the recording on his phone.”

If you think we need to take more action to protect men from false allegations then join our campaign to #StopFalseAllegations today.
