Feelings of remorse, guilt, anger, and regret about a particular consensual sexual encounter have led to many accusations of sexual assault. People, whether conscious or unconscious with clear memory or not, can have bad feelings after consensual intercourse and feel that they have been violated.
If they have a poor recollection or no recollection of what happened, people occasionally fill that void in memory with thoughts that they may have been or must have been sexually assaulted.
Even women who are conscious and uncompromised can be unclear about their desire for sexual intimacy and may engage in sexual activity at times when they are not sure what they are doing is right. Later, they may have regrets or remorse about what they have done for any number of reasons. Dates that did not work out as expected, bad behavior by the man after intimacy, or misunderstandings about the feelings of the other party can lead to vindictive behaviors, which occasionally can include allegation of sexual assault when none occurred.
If you have regrets or second thoughts about a sexual encounter, carefully evaluate what occurred to determine if the other party had any indication that they were acting against consent. If there is no indication that consent had been withdrawn, then sexual assault did not take place.
