The law sees rape as having occurred when a man:
- penetrates his penis or any object into the vagina, mouth, urethra, or anus of a woman or forces her to do this with him or another person,
- manipulates any part of the body of a woman in order to cause penetration into the vagina, urethra, anus or any part of the body of such woman or makes her do with him or any other person,
- applies his mouth to the vagina, anus, urethra of a woman or makes her do so with him or any other person.
The extent of penetration does not matter and any slight penetration could also lead to rape.
Sex with a woman under any of these circumstances will be considered as rape:
- Sex without her consent.
- She agrees, but only because she or someone she knows is in danger.
- She agrees, but because she thinks the accused person is her husband.
- She agrees, but she is drugged, or drunk, or mentally ill.
- She is under 18 – then it does not matter if she agreed or not.
- She is in no position to indicate whether she agreed or not – for example if she is unconscious.
A medical procedure or intervention cannot be considered as rape. For example: The doctors while examining the patients have to follow certain procedures which would require them to examine the private parts of the patient.0
