Lauer’s office was fashioned with a button under his desk that “allowed him to lock his door from the inside without getting up.”
Without them seeing that it was locked until they tried to escape.
But these men aren’t sexual predators, right?
What do predators do, target, provoke fear and prevent it from escaping?
It’s boys being boys, middle-aged? We can trust older men.
I’m sure all the women he used that button on were the instigators, just trying to ruin his reputation.
Who doesn’t have a sex dungeon button in their office?
And obviously women should feel safe around married men.
Predators ruin their own reputation, there is nothing to ruin.
You act like a degenerate over many years, that’ll be your rep.
It’s been established (that film sucked).
Sue for false imprisonment. It is.
“Actual physical restraint is not necessary for false imprisonment to occur.”
That or kidnapping.
“or the confining of a person to a controlled space.”
It’s tantamount to handcuffing someone to a bed.
Equal standards, poor kid.
Forcing any sexual contact (including coercion, seen here) amounts to sexual violence.
He should sue.

A lot of people are guilty of this one.
Thinking that hiding behind a screen makes it not count.
Unsolicited = unconsented.
You can only cry “it was consensual” to a judge later on if you actually, explicitly ask about the thing. You’re online, there’s no excuse.
