    I do not see how this can be justified even under the specious reasoning the jury used.


    Jury Decides Consent Is Not Required For Girls Gone Wild


    If you want to have some fun go to River Front Times and let them know how you feel about them naming the victim of a sexual assault as Ass Clown of the Week.

    So she has the perp. on film. Why isn't she or didn't she file sexual assault charges against him when the incident occurred if she was so upset about it?

    I wouldn't put too much stock into a Jezebel article. They're the same people who accused Jon Stewart of being sexist because only 40% of the staff was female. Despite the fact that Jezebel itself is a all-female staff.

    Better off finding the original article without all the bias.

    It might have been her husband.

    But that isn't really the point. My wife flashes me all the time (woo-hoo!), however, if I were to invite camera's into it, and then release a videotape of it for sale, it would be a whole 'nother ball of wax.

    She shoulda won. I don't think $5 million, but she shoulda won.

    My opinion on the actual verdict: If she's at the bar, dancing in front of the cameras for Girls Gone Wild, then I'm not sure what exactly she was expecting. Someone taping a video for Girls Gone Wild isn't going to be taping someone unless they're going to show skin. That's their whole thing.

    What I find interesting and what is completely overlooked here is that she's 20 and at this bar. She shouldn't of even been there in the first place probably.

    And another thing, asking for $5 million is a quick way for them to think your lawsuit is ridiculous.

    I don't know.
    Why would somebody be hanging around "girls gone wild" cameras?
    I mean, everybody knows what they do; if you don't want to be on film, why be there?

    In my opinion she knew what she was getting into. She knew who was filming. She knew the cameras were there. She knew what girls gone wild puts out for entertainment. Everyone there implies consent by participating in the event.

    Truthfully the whole "spring break" thing is bullshit.

    I agree AB, its about money. If she felt she was assaulted then the time to whine about it was then.

    Great point MB about her being underage at a bar.

    You can be 18 and get into bars, just depends on the state. In Florida, 18 to enter, 21 to drink.

    I don't buy the jury's logic. It is like saying if some woman goes with me to a restaurant and a movie, she is consenting to rape afterwards.

    She was consenting to being filmed dancing clothed. Not being filmed topless. Even the guys doing the filming agree she was not willing to have her top removed. They did it by force.
