Date rape is a term used to describe forced or non-consensual sexual intercourse or sexual activity between two people with a pre-existing relationship, such as a couple, friends, neighbors, or acquaintances. In some instances of date rape, the offender may use alcohol or drugs to incapacitate the victim in order to gain control over them. Certain drugs, such as GHB or Rohypnol, have been nicknamed "date rape drugs" because of the effect they have on the victim. People who consume these drugs tend to lose consciousness quickly and have little to no recollection of what occurred while they were under the influence of the drugs.
