A man accused raping a young woman on the grounds of a Brisbane cathedral should be acquitted because their interactions were "consensual", a jury has heard.
Mitchell Cameron Peggie, 26, has pleaded not guilty to raping and sexually assaulting the then-21-year-old when the pair met up after making contact via online dating site Oasis in August last year.
On Tuesday, his barrister Douglas Wilson told jurors the defence case was the conduct was "between consenting adults".
He said while his client was "forthright" about the events of the night, his alleged victim was "evasive" when she gave evidence.
Text message exchanges between the two before the meeting were indicative of two people flirting and showed Peggie was "direct" about how he thought the date would go, Mr Wilson said.
But he urged jurors not to infer guilt given the sexual nature of some of the messages, suggesting that type of language was used regularly by younger people.
It came after they heard crown prosecutor Brendan White outline the complainant's version of events on Monday.
The woman alleges he placed his hand around her neck, turned her body and raped her against the wall of the Cathedral of St Stephen after the pair left a CBD bar and walked into the grounds.
In his own closing, Mr White said it was understandable the woman was defensive in evidence because she was being accused of lying about a traumatic experience.
He suggested Peggie's account was a "made-up work of fictional fantasy" and text messages indicated he wasn't taking the hint when she didn't welcome his explicit comments.
Mr White told the jury her wearing lingerie on the night didn't mean she was consenting to sexual activity, quoting her testimony: "Just because I wore it doesn't mean I wanted anyone else to see it".
"(Rape) doesn't have to be a stereotype of a stranger through a window at night," he concluded.
"It happens when a woman says no, and a man keeps going."
Judge Deborah Richards is expected to address the jury on Thursday morning.
