    The episode highlights young romance and naivety on both the parts of Manny, who essentially allowed his girlfriend to be assaulted and Avery, who swears Manny was not involved in what transpired. Things are further complicated due to the fact that Avery had multiple orgasms during the assault, something she had never had with Manny who was forced to watch the assault, and the three gang members accused of the act use this as their defense that Avery had 'wanted it' because she was 'coming like a freight train' and that Manny was the one who invited them over. I thought the episode did well in exploring a very touchy subject (female orgasms during a violent assault) without being too graphic or focusing too much on the gory details. There is a lot of misunderstanding about orgasms during rape but what people need to understand and what the show tries to highlight is, rape is rape, an unwanted sexual act, and that does not change even if the victim orgasms during the assault. Well done SVU.

    A pretty disappointing episode here. Have no interest in Olivia as the sergeant, and I think that is just an excuse to give her less field work as Mariska cuts down on scenes in the show's fifteenth season.
