A new study which was released this week indicates that new and reckless sex trend alarms women. The new practice which is called stealthing consists in secretly removing the condom during sex without the consent of a partner. What is even worse, it is that there are many online communities which encourage such an impulsive practice. The new study was recently published in the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law.
More and more women complain about experiencing stealthing
The research points out that removing a condom during sexual intercourse without the consent of the partner exposes women to a high risk of illnesses and pregnancy. This is considered a severe violation of autonomy and dignity. Stealthing is understood as non-consensual sex since men decide to remove the condom without asking their partners. These persons who use such a practice do not take into consideration the danger of transmitted infections.
Alexandra Brodsky, the study author, noted that she decided to closely analyze this matter since many women complain about having terrible sexual experiences. She explains that several of her female friends claimed that they were mistreated by their partners, but not in a violent way rather their behavior had its roots in the lack of respect and misogyny.
This new sex trend consists in removing the condom during sex without the partner’s consent
Moreover, many of her friends experienced stealthing, but they did not know how to handle this new sex trend which threatens the state of health of both partners and also increases the risk of pregnancy. Nobody has the right to make their own sexual decision without asking their partner first. People who practice this should think about their own health if they are too selfish to think of their partner’s.
It is striking that there is an online community of men who gladly advise and encourage this terrible sex trend. The new study indicates that many internet forums provide victims’ accounts and promote this type of practice, providing explicit descriptions for how to trick a partner and all sorts of advice to remove the condom during sexual intercourse.
Brodsky’s study begins with Rebecca’s story, a woman who was interviewed for the new research and who said that she is not sure whether this new practice could be considered rape or not since many women complain about the fact that they did not give their consent when their partner removed the condom. The article developed by Brodsky is meant to encourage people to discuss this new sex trend and try to avoid dismissing such common problems.
