Consent does not mean the failure by the alleged victim to offer physical resistance to the offender. Evidence of the victims mental incapacity or defect, if any, may be considered in determining whether there was an intelligent, knowing and voluntary consent. "Mentally incapacitated" means that a person is rendered temporarily incapable of appraising or controlling his or her conduct due to the influence of a narcotic, anesthetic or intoxicating substance administered to that person without his or her consent, or due to any other act committed upon that person without his or her consent. "Mentally defective" means that a person suffers from a mental disease or defect that renders that person temporarily or permanently inof appraising the nature of capable his or her conduct. "Union" means contact. "Physically helpless" means that a person is unconscious, asleep or for any other reason physically unable to communicate unwillingness to act. "Serious personal injury" means great bodily harm or pain, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement. "Physically incapacitated" means that a person is bodily impaired or handicapped and substantially limited in his or her ability to resist or flee an act. However, any act done for bona fide mdical purposes is not a sexual battery. e NOTES TO JUDGE : In the event of multiple perpetrators, give instruction on enhancement, F.S. 794.023.
