A Rape Survivor's 10 Commandments For Sex* by Marcella Chester


  1. Be trustworthy and honest - with others and yourself

  2. Use sex only as a means of connection and respect

  3. Use courtesy, uprightness and prudence

  4. Be charitable and help your neighbor stay safe

  5. Sex shall not be an expression of power and domination or disdain

  6. Don't use impairment or availability as a tool or an excuse

  7. Support those harmed and don't benefit from their previous injuries

  8. Shun sexual assaulters/exploiters and those who make excuses for them

  9. Protect those more vulnerable than you even if it makes you uncomfortable

  10. Do only what you and anyone else involved will never regret

* adapted from the Vatican's 10 commandments for cars
