Consent in the Criminal Law: Law Commission report no. 139 (1995)

The Law Commission was perhaps the last official body in the UK to take a serious look at matters of consent, the law and sexuality. This they did back in 1995, when the spanner case (qv.) was still fresh in peoples’ minds and before New Labour arrivbed in 1997 and took a very different approach to issues of consent.

It is, however, still worth reading (espesh part 10, which focuses on issues of consent and the deliberate infliction of pain):
