A proposed change to the law in New South Wales can lead to a criminal offense to lie to have sex with a potential partner.

The New South Wales Law Reform Commission recommends that if a physical relationship arises after a person is unfair about himself, sexual violence charges apply.

The proposal contains a clause regarding liars and people who fraudulently incite others to engage in sexual activity.

"We propose that the law provide that a person who is fraudulently encouraged to participate in sexual activity does not legally consent to sexual activity," the Commission said in its review of consent legislation.

Sydney University told criminologist Andrew Dyer 10 daily the proposed changes were far-reaching.

& # 39; Telling someone that you love him if you don't, pretending to be rich and well connected if you aren't, claiming you don't have educational achievements, denying a complex sexual history – for example, with partners from same sex – could all be conceivable counting as fraudulent obtaining sexual consent, & he said.

The reforms would relate to conversations about dating apps such as Tinder and lifelike encounters.

They would apply to all people of all genders, respectively, and force people to be careful what they say to potential enthusiasts.

& # 39; If the brag that you have provoked encourages someone to engage in sexual activity with you, then you are likely to spend a long time in jail, & said Dyer.

NSW Attorney General Mark Speakman asked everyone with an opinion about the proposal to submit to the Commission by Monday 18 November at the latest.
