Stealthing Soon to Be A Crime

Posted on: Tue 20 Aug 2019

Stealthing or non-consensual condom removal is currently not fully recognised as a criminal offence in Australia, but this could be changing.

Breakfast’s Zoe Kounadis speaks with Brianna Chesser, Senior Lecturer in Criminology and Justice at RMIT University about the current uncertainty around this non-consensual act, the current case currently facing the courts and how the changes around definition will have an impact on sexual violence.

If you or someone you know is impacted by sexual assault, domestic or family violence, call 1800RESPECT on 1800 737 732 or visit In an emergency, call 000.
