There - that grabbed your attention!
So your backpacking in Australia with your boyfriend - you get ambushed by some pyscho, your boyfriend gets murdered, his body dragged off into the bush. You then get assaulted and tied up, courageously run off and escape detection.
Through impossible odds you survive an nightmare experience..
Through some fluke your assailant is captured, justive prevails, you face your attacker in court...
The system wont allow the perpetrator of the crime to have his past revealed in case it jeopardises his trial...
Then with the eyes of the world on you.....your love affair/affairs you had while with your dead boyfriend are paraded out by the defence lawyer! What relevance is your sex life when your boyfriend is killed by a complete stranger?
It seems a return to the old days when rape victims had all their previous sexual history / gynae problems/ terminations revealed in the News of the World...Lets hope the defence gets the boot!
