HLN’s Dr. Drew Asks Bristol Palin If Sex With Levi Johnston Felt ‘Like Rape’

HLN’s Dr. Drew Pinsky interviews Bristol Palin tonight, and he presses her on the question of whether she consented to the sex that left her pregnant at 17. “It was a night that I look back on with the adult eyes that I have now,” Palin says. “And I just realize, that was so stupid. That was so stupid to lie to my Mom, to have those series of bad decisions I made all in one night.”

About that night, Pinsky presses Palin on whether the sex was consensual, or, perhaps, date rape. Asking about Palin’s intoxication, he says “in California, that would be a rape. Is it the same in Alaska?” Later, he asks “did it feel like a rape?” Palin insists she consented, and points to staying with Levi Johnston as proof–something Pinsky suggests many teens do.

The interview airs tonight at 9 p.m. on HLN.
