"A senior judge has said he "cannot think of any more obviously fundamental human right" than the right of a husband to have sex with his wife in a case concerning a woman with learning difficulties."

What an insensitive comment. This may cost him his job.

Of course the real question here is Does a man have the fundamental right to sleep with his wife if she doesn't have the mental capacity to consent? Followed by, if not how can the law prevent it happening?

"We are not all as shallow an animalistic as you are painting us."

So anyone who 'needs' sex is animalistic? I see.

No, but anyone who thinks sex is as necessary as oxygen, and must have it at all costs, within marriage if available, outwith marriage if not - is animalistic in my view.

They are animalistic the sense that they are responding to a biological urge and wish to appear unable to have any control over it, which they do, but opt not to utilise in the interests of civilised behaviour

On further reflection, I think what his honour may have meant to impart is the fundamental right of a husband to have sex with his wife … without interference from the judicial system.

Either that part of his observation was edited in the interests of whipping up a story, or he omitted to include it, which was careless speaking on his part.

So is defecating, which, unlike sex, is actually essential to survival, but as a civilised society, we don't obey all our instincts as and when they come upon us.

Civilisation demands that we constrain our urges to suit situations, not simply indulge them like they are itches to be scratched.
as i said Andy, he either missed using, or it wasn't reported, the word "consensual" before the word "sex"
I think it is the wrong question all round. It should be about her rights- his haven't changed. Does this mean she is never allowed to have sex again beause others have decided her communiation isn't good enough? That seems a lot more of a fundamental right than her husband obeying an already existing law. Do we just assume she will never want to?
Exactly Pixie, it would be equally easy to argue that she has not consented to Social Services interfering in her sex life.
Sometimes a day on AB shows what it must have been like in caveman times :-)
