A new criminal offence of intentionally deceiving a person into engaging in sexual activity should be created to address confusion in the law around consent, legal experts and lawyers have said.
The new offence of inducing sexual activity by deception would cover both making of false representations as well as failing to disclose information.
As such, it would potentially apply in future to cases such as those involving “spy cops”, in which undercover police officers adopted fake personas and conducted sexual affairs with female activists.
Hmmm. Isn't it also going to apply to transgender people who aren't forthcoming about their real sex?
I'm going to need two of these!
