London, Nov 17 (ANI): A new UK survey has revealed that nearly half of young men still think that having sex with women too drunk to know what is going on is not rape.

And 46 pc of men aged 18 to 25 also do not consider it rape if the woman changes her mind during sex.

The survey comes as a new video to raise awareness about rape was posted on YouTube by a group of specialist support centers called The Havens.

"It's not consensual sex unless both parties agree," Sky News quoted former Miss Great Britain finalist and rape victim Victoria Buglioni.

In May last yea, Buglioni's life changed suddenly after she was followed into the lavatories at a London nightclub.

"The man grabbed me by the hair and smashed my head against the toilet cubical wall.

"I fought back as best as I could but I was knocked out for 27 minutes during which he continued to rape me and get what he wanted from me," explained the 25-year-old.

Despite CCTV evidence, no one was convicted of her rape.

Astonishingly, even if a woman says "no" from the start, 23 pc of young men still believe sex after that point does not constitute rape. (ANI)
