R v Clarence (1888)
- The defendant had sexual intercourse with his wife knowing that he had Gonorrhoea
- Did the wife consent to the intercourse?
- The Gonorrhoea was only an attribute to the sexual act, and so did not constitute a negation of consent to the act
- The infliction of Gonorrhoea may constitute a separate offence
