Abstract:     
This article defends the author's views from a challenge presented by Professor Hyman Goss. It argues that criminalising a man who uses force or deceptions to obtain his partner's consent to sex, does not infringe his human rights, but rather protects the partner's rights to sexual autonomy. It also denies claims that in seeking to criminalise cases of 'rape by fraud' or where the victim is mistaken over an essential fact that the author is being a moralist.
