if you decide to go all the way but then don't want to anymore -for whatever reasons- but gives signals that you want to stop like crying or not relaxing or dry heaving etc but don't say anything and keep going.

i don't think that's rape, but i've heard it is and isn't. anywho, just wanted some nuetral opinions. thanks :]

If at any time one or both partners decide that they don't want to have sex anymore, it should stop - period. It doesn't matter if you audibly say no or you just don't say yes ... if you're giving some sign (even just laying there unresponsive) then it's a cue to the other party to stop. Crying is definitely another sign ... and anytime you "dry heave" is a very strong physical sign that your body is reacting to an unpleasant stimulus.

What you're describing here most certainly is a form of rape. Rape is defined as a party having sex done to or on them without consent throughout. I've attached an article that I think will help you some. The first part is just the part of the article on consent and the second part the whole article. Hope this helps.
