Introduction to the Symposium focusing on issues arising from determining when sex is the product of free choice, when it is the result of force, and the legal and philosophical implications arising from those issues. To introduce this Symposium, I first discuss the issues related to the crime of rape, the idea of sexual autonomy, and the concept of affirmative consent to sex. Then, I briefly summarize the symposium authors’ various approaches to these topics.
