Date Rape

also termed acquaintance-rape, it refers to non-consensual sex between two socially acquainted individuals; but wherein the consent for sex has not been there. Legally there is no distinction between rape (committed by someone unknown) and date-rape, though the standard of proof required for later is harder to meet.
