Beginning of intimacy

May Savard recalls that over the summer the complainant and the singer exchanged messages of a sexual nature that clearly showed a desire to sleep together after they began a romantic relationship 5 months after a concert.

I probably expressed my desire to have sex with him, but that had nothing to do with the plan to have sex in the hotel that day.Explains the complainant.
