Subject to discreet negotiation
15 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Diane Neal must have made a good impression on the SVU producers because they asked her to succeed Stephanie March as the Sex Crimes ADA. March is prosecuting her and some high powered female friends for raping a male stripper.

This is truly one of the most ridiculous episodes that Law And Order SVU or for that matter any of the Law And Order franchise ever made. They were trying to show that the male of the species can be a victim as well as a perpetrator of rape, but what they did here is ridiculous.

It's a given fact that when one enters that occupation that sexual favors are a matter of course. Now they might be subject to discreet negotiation, still it's very much implied the stripper might be available. These women would not have to do what they did in the first place.

There is a real murder here and forensics only discovers it at the last minute. But the whole point of this show is laughable.
