The debate on consensual sex intensified after Delhi High Court said that sex on the pretext of marriage is not always rape. Justice Vibhu Bakhru said that sex on the pretext of marriage can not be considered rape if the woman continues to have intimacy over a long period of time. The HC said long term intimacy and sex after the promise of marriage are two different things and the rape angle can be discussed only in the latter case.
