Men must have a clear & # 39; yes & # 39; from their wives before they jump to bed together under sweeping new sexual consent laws that experts consider as a & # 39; waste of time & # 39; have slammed shut.

According to current laws in NSW, a person only refuses permission if he refuses sex physically or verbally.

The new laws, similar to Victoria and Tasmania, mean that a person does not agree by simply not opposing sex.

Australian Bar Alliance Greg Barns said the changes were unnecessary and a clear mood killer because & # 39; we know that sex doesn't happen like that & # 39 ;.

Services for rape and domestic violence, Australia, Karen Willis, said just because a woman on the altar & I do & # 39; says it doesn't mean it's for life.

The monumental proposal comes after a revision of rape laws by the NSW Law Reform Commission.

The assessment was fueled by a high-profile rape case involving Luke Lazarus, who was convicted and subsequently acquitted of raping the 18-year-old Virgin Saxon Mullins on her first night out at King's Cross in Sydney.

Mr Barns said that the current consent laws were already fair and clear and did not require reform.

& # 39; It's almost like you want people to have a contractual analysis, & # 39; said Mr. Barns The Daily Telegraph.

& # 39; These cases are complex in the law regarding consent and we think it is reasonably workable as it is. & # 39;

& # 39; Only because you ever & # 39; I do say & # 39; doesn't mean you have to say it for the rest of your life, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; If you are not 100 percent sure if the person agrees and do not want to ask, just stop. & # 39;

28-year-old Lazarus was convicted in 2015 of raping Mullins in an alley behind his father's nightclub two years earlier.

He was sentenced to at least three years in prison, but appealed against the verdict and was acquitted on the basis of his belief in consent was reasonable.
