The Swedish Parliament is going to oblige citizens to obtain explicit consent for sex

In Sweden the Parliament will consider a bill requiring citizens to obtain explicit consent of a partner before the sexual act. On December 21, reported the Associated Press.

If the bill passes, the law will come into force in July 2018. It will spread not only in casual relationships, but couples in a relationship or marriage.

Under current Swedish law, the responsibility for rape can be attracted only if it is proved that the victim had used threats or violence.

According to the proposal, the rape can be proved, if there was the explicit oral consent or explicitly demonstrated a desire to have sex.
