A woman was charged with rape after her boyfriend claimed that she had sex with him while he was asleep, according to court documents filed in Germany.
The 49-year-old boyfriend, identified as Thomas, told a court that his girlfriend demanded too much sex despite the fact that he is sterilized.
He claims that one night, he awoke to find his 39-year-old girlfriend on top of him. Thomas said that the experience was very painful to him and he never consented to having sex while asleep.
Thomas recalled that he had a nice warm dream before being awakened by his girlfriend. Judge Leberecht Staupe said that this was a unique case as usually, the men are charged with rape and not women.
The man’s girlfriend, identified as Cecelia, told the court that her boyfriend attacked her during their relationship by throwing her to the ground and pulling out her hair.
The judge found the woman not guilty of rape, saying that the man probably enjoyed what his girlfriend was doing. The judge also said that the boyfriend failed to prove that he was injured by the attack.
