Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I find that extremely different to answer. Firstly, you are asking about a point in time for a slow movement that took many years. Then there are different levels: the argumentation of the lawmakers and other politicians, the argumentation of courts, the argumentation of the media. They all switched to the paradigm that focuses on consent at different points in time. And a few years later they started to be embarrassed of what their respective outlets had said earlier. The relevant chapter in the German penal code used to be "Crimes and offences against morality" and was re-named to "Crimes and offences against sexual self-determination" in 1973.
