A woman who poked holes in her partner’s condom to get pregnant has been arrested.
The 39-year-old was convicted of sexual assault in Germany after the ‘stealth‘ Incident involving her 42-year-old ‘benefits friend’.
Stealthing is when a condom is removed without consent during intercourse, but it usually involves a man doing it.
The couple is said to have been in a casual relationship and have met regularly since early 2021, German media reports.
But Bielefeld Regional Court said the woman had developed deeper feelings for her partner, which were not reciprocated as the man was happy with the loose arrangement.
Although the woman was unsuccessful in her attempt to conceive, the court heard she had sent the man a WhatsApp saying it was her and admitting to having sabotaged the condoms.
The 42-year-old then filed criminal charges against her and later admitted trying to manipulate her partner, according to the local newspaper New Westphalian.
Initially, the woman was accused of rape, later this was reduced to sexual assault. She was detained for six months.
Judge Astrid Salewski is said to have told the court: “We made legal history here today.”
The German case comes after California became the first US state to make removing a condom without partner’s consent a civil offense in October last year.
And according to a 2018 survey of patients at a sexual health clinic in Melbourne, Australia, nearly a third of women and 19% of men who have sex with men said they had experienced stealthing.
