“I woke up 10 hours later naked in his tent,” she recalls of the 2014 incident. “I was definitely drugged.”

“A study by the Sexual Assault and Partner Abuse Care Program at the Ottawa Hospital found that 26 per cent of sexual assault cases involving patients who attended the institute in 2013 occurred at mass gatherings. About 40 per cent of patients believed they were drugged and only 33 per cent said they knew the assailant.”

Drinking with strangers is dangerous.

“Jodie Ortega, a Vancouver-based advocate for survivors of sexual violence, says the growing conversation around the safety of women at music festivals should be a cue to other events, concert halls and clubs that ticket buyers expect to see improvement.”

  1. Never in a million years. Why are some women so desperate for male companionship that they would take the chance? Haven’t they heard of the dildo?

  2. It is doubtful I am going to be offered a drink by a guy but on the other hand I wouldn’t offer one to a strange woman either. I seldom go to bars but was at one near the Marina Del Ray in Los Angeles and observed a woman groped by a guy and she kicked the shit out of him. That is the way I think women should deal with the issue.

    I don’t mean to be crass, but I agree with Rebecca. I don’t think its a case of wanting friends, women can make friends with other women with little or no threat of violence, so it has to do with wanting male companionship.

    I think this says it all, “About 40 per cent of patients believed they were drugged and only 33 per cent said they knew the assailant.”
