Rough Sex or Rape? Say 'Velvet'

What's up with this week's weird case of 'SF Lit Dude In Court'? So basically lit scenester Justin Desmangles "stands accused of rape, sodomy by force and assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly using an extension cord to choke his victim in a rough sex session gone awry."?? And then: "Matt Gonzalez, California Poet Laureate Albert Young and San Francisco Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman have all taken the stand as character witnesses for Desmangles." The Examiner had the story first on Friday August 3rd, then SFist, followed by the juicy bits from LegalPad.

"Desmangles explained Thursday that the first time he had sex with his accuser, a week before the alleged February rape, she had grabbed his wrist, placed it right under her throat and “pushed down hard.”

According to Desmangles, this “gesture” was new to him. In fact, he said, he considered it emotionally and physically awkward.

When they had sex a week later — this time on the floor after tumbling off the bed — Desmangles said he noticed a pile of cords, grabbed one and pressed it against her neck, clutching the cord from both sides. “Velvet” would be the safety word for Stacie G. According to Desmangles, Stacie G. never showed any indication she wanted him to stop. He said he stopped the sex voluntarily once she began to slap him on the thighs. Evidently the safe word "velvet" was never spoken during the choking sex."

Was that before or after the sodomy? In other perversions, The Examiner has way too many blogs. -d2

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
