Rape

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Radio / Writing / 2007

SFX: Pub atmosphere.<br/>MV1 (talking to mate, bragging): That girl Mandy I was chatting to last night, right, I only went and got off with her. <br/><br/>MV2: Oh yeah?<br/><br/>MV1: Yeah, I&#39;ve gone back to her place with her flatmates, had a couple of drinks, played a few CDs, everyone else has gone to bed. So we&#39;ve ended up snogging on the sofa. One thing leads to another, you know how it is, and before you know it . . .<br/><br/>SFX: Pub atmosphere drops away.<br/><br/>MV1 (more formal and nervous): . . . I was on top of her. She started struggling a bit, but I thought she was just playing hard to get your Honour. I mean, she didn&#39;t ask me to stop so I just took that as a yes. I didn&#39;t think that made me a rapist. <br/><br/>MVO: If you have sex without consent, you could end up telling your story in court, and you could go to prison for rape. If you don&#39;t get a yes, don&#39;t have sex. For information visit Homeoffice.gov.uk.<br/>
