**What Woman need to know about Date Rape.

 That could never happen to me Date rape and things you need to know  

     Guard yourself now

*Did you know that Date rape drugs are odorless and tasteless?  

*Did you know that 80% of sexual assaults are committed by someone you already know?

*Did you know that Alcohol is a major factor of  rapes?

*Did you know that between 20 to 25 % of college women have been victims of rape or attempted rape.  

*Did you know Date rape drugs make it difficult or almost impossible to give consent sexual intercourse?

*Did you know that the FBI estimates that 10% of men are victims of sexual assault?

Date rape is sadly known to more women then we would like to know. A lot of assaults have never been reported. For the reason we can't remember or we blame ourselves for what happened.  Most of the time you know the rapist and you like the guy; he has always been so nice. They have been in your life for sometime, as a friend or a guy you see around.  Now you're at party or home and somewhere somehow things take a turn and you never saw coming.  

Your never remember anything about what happened last night. Your feeling sick and you have no idea where you are or how you got their. The last thing you remember is that you were having a nice time but that is even cloudy to you. Looking around you see your bra is on the other side of the room. O No that could never happen to me.  

You are the **victim if you said NO then that means NO  

It's important to not take a shower, go to the bathroom if you do put urine in a small cup so they can test it.

 I know this is so hard and you're not even clear what happened how can you tell the police. Call a friend that is what friends are for.
Date Rape is a crime you will be arrested and charged

  • Always leave contact before you go out just in case.

*Don't let alcohol be the source of having a good time, Your really can have fun without it even though you don't think so now.

*Its also a good idea to take your own car on a date its ok to say you will meet him their. Be in control of your life. Just in case you want to leave or you get a bad feeling you have your car. In today's world you need to be in control of YOU.  

*Carry a **personal alarm or pepper spray or some kind of protection with you at all times. Don't wait for something to happen before you protect yourself. They make some that no one would know that your lipstick is a pepper spray or that the ring you have on your finger is a pepper spray.

It's the time in your life where you need to make adults choices now is the time if you are old enough to drink, drive, vote, and make some adult decisions. Remember what our mother taught us. Pay Attention to everything around you.  Don't let your guard down. Look into self defense products. Its time to protect yourself now.

    • Hello Leeann
      This is something that has been going on for a very long time. I tell women in my classes that it really is a great idea to know the bartender where you go, this happens so often Date rape is not only for a 20 year old while one guy takes you on the dance floor the other guy just put something in your drink. I always take my drink with me to the bathroom but never leave on the bar unless other people are their to watch it.
      How are you doing. The great thing about this site is it takes you away from other things and you meet really great women. I love it.
      Talk soon Thinking of you & your Mom
