‘Stealthing’ Is Probably The Most Dangerous New Sex Trend And It’s NOT Sexy At All

The latest sex trend has nothing to do with certain technique or a new position. Contrary, it is a disturbing and disgusting one.

‘Stealthing’ is a nonconsensual trend that occurs when the man removes his condom during sex without the knowledge of their partner. It is one form of sexual assault and it should be treated like that.

Moreover, the fact that some men are actually encouraging other men to practice this trick in order to “spread their seed” as the online community Brodsky found is utterly horrible.

“One of my goals with the article, and in proposing a new statute, is to provide a vocabulary and create ways for people to talk about what is a really common experience that just is too often dismissed as just ‘bad sex’ instead of ‘violence,’” Brodsky told the Huffington Post.

The study opens with Rebecca who is a doctoral student and she works at a rape crisis hotline. She had experienced ‘stealthing’ with her ex-boyfriend but she didn’t know what was happening at the time. She says there are more and more women out there calling and saying they have been ‘stealthed.’

“Their stories often start the same way,” says Rebecca. “’I’m not sure if this is rape, but…’” 

These women all feel violated but they don’t have the proper vocabulary to express their experience and figure out what has happened in the first place.

This violent act does not only make the victim vulnerable to STIs, STDs, or pregnancy, but it also causes financial, physical, and emotional damage that is very similar to that of experiencing rape or other acts that are clearly violent.

Brodsky says that since there are no laws that cover the topic of ‘stealthing’ and protect the victims, there is a need for a new statute in order to address something that is happening more and more often to people, but they don’t know how they can talk about it.

“At its best, such a law would clearly respond to and affirm the harm victims report by making clear that ‘stealthing’ doesn’t just ‘feel violent’ — it is,” Brodsky writes.
