‘Bigger’ woman ‘forced man saying no into sex because his d*** was saying yes’

A woman forced a man to have sex with her after telling him "you may be saying no but your d*** is saying yes", a court heard.

Imogen Brooke, 30, was allegedly ‘very drunk’ when she clambered onto the man, who can't be named for legal reasons, jurors at Southampton Crown Court were told.

The court heard that the interaction lasted for 15 minutes, after which Miss Brooke got off and fell asleep.

Jurors were told that Brooke was the bigger of the two individuals involved and that the alleged victim was left lying there in disbelief.

Prosecutor Robert Bryan told the court: "Imogen Brooke caused [the complainant] to engage in the sexual activity… and he did not consent, and she did not reasonably believe him to be consenting.

"In the public image, a sexual offender is male and the victim of a sexual offence is female. That is a misconception.”

He later added: “This case must be tried on criminal evidence and not on stereotypes."

Later in his speech, he said: "Just because you are physically aroused doesn't mean you want it."

Those in the court were told that the pair had met through an online dating site with the alleged attack taking place in Miss Brooke’s home in Southampton.

She denies one charge of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.

Mr Bryan said: "After some drinks they went up to bed, where what he wanted was to go to sleep. Miss Brooke wanted to have sex, and was pulling his arm, eventually pulling him onto his back.

"She pulled him towards her and said 'well, you may be saying no, but your d*** is saying yes'. She climbed on top of him and pulled his boxer shorts down.

"He told the police investigators she is quite a lot bigger and stronger than him and he couldn't move her. He wanted it to stop.

"He thought saying no would be enough. Eventually it came to an end and she just turned over and went to sleep.

"At the police interview, he accepted he had an erection, but he didn't want to have one.

"She was on top of him, riding him by leaning on his shoulders. It didn't finish by his ejaculation, but by him losing his erection and she gave up.”

Mr Bryan said that Miss Brooke had denied the claims because she wouldn’t assume that position.

He continued: "Miss Brooke's case is that would not, could not and did not happen.

"With sexual positioning at the forefront of your minds, if he has made all this up – why would a man make an allegation that he knows would be implausible as the one position he knew that they would not use?"

In a police interview played to the court, the complainant said: "She was very drunk,” later adding that: "She's quite a lot bigger and stronger than me and I just couldn't do anything about it.

"I can't move her when she's on top because she's a lot heavier than me. She's about twice my body weight – so I can't move.

"I wanted it to end. I just gave up because she wasn't going to listen to me. I said what I said but it was going in one ear and out the other.”

The complainant added: "I felt violated. I couldn't believe it happened. The following day she had no memory of what had happened."

The trial continues.
