Love Spells

An Explanation

Gunnar


Rape:

Unlawful sexual activity and usu. sexual intercourse carried out forcibly or under threat of injury against the will usu. of a female or with a person who is beneath a certain age or incapable of valid consent because of mental illness, mental deficiency, intoxication, unconsciousness, or deception

Note: The common-law crime of rape involved a man having carnal knowledge of a woman not his wife through force and against her will, and required at least slight penetration of the penis into the vagina. While some states maintain essentially this definition of rape, most have broadened its scope esp. in terms of the sex of the persons and the nature of the acts involved. Marital status is usu. irrelevant. Moreover, the crime is codified under various names, including first degree sexual assault sexual battery unlawful sexual intercourse, and first degree sexual abuse.

What exactly is a love spell? The possibilities are:

  • forceful conversion of one's desires
  • instilling a desire
  • heightening one's awareness of an individual

We'll take the last first.

Heightening someone's awareness, getting noticedc for short, is the least invasive, and the least likely to achieve the usually desired result. Is it any wonder very few use it in this fashion?

Instilling a desire...hmmm. You're not changing anything, just adding to someone's beliefs, right? Wrong. You are covertly changing (ie. twisting) someone. Sound like something you'd like to have done to yourself?

Forceful conversion. The first word says it all.

Now take another look at the definition above: incapable of valid consent because of mental illness, mental deficiency, intoxication, unconsciousness, or deception. Haven't you just removed their ability to consent?
