Is there a date rape drug that cause the people who take it to act like a child, in the sense that the super obedient and do everything someone tells them to? IOW, they consent, but because the drug has altered their behaviour?

I don't know if this is a rumour or not, as I've heard it from a few people now.

There are so many substances out there to abuse, I don't know how we'd cross-reference that to find out.

That said, any great number of drugs could have that impact on someone, and I'd say all the drugs we know have often been used for drug-facilitated assault could potentially result in that kind of behaviour. Anyone in a stupor could act that way.

When I was drugged (I don't know what with) I was totally not in control of my body - my assailant led me around and I followed him and did everytng he asked. Inside I was freaking out, but I couldn't seem to control my body (despite being able to walk with him). I was also having strange delusions. I definitely wouldn't call it "consenting" because I had no control of myself, despite doing what he asked.

I had assumed at the time that I was drugged ith GHB, but I've learned since then there are a few date-rape drugs it could have been. I think they are used by rapists BECAUSE of this effect it has, it's perfect for getting their victim to leave with them, and then not be able to move.
