A lot of people have taken up the ridiculous belief that since most men “want sex more” than women do (at least in theory), that a man can never be raped. Aside from the fact that another man might be able to rape a man, the notion that a woman can never force or manipulate a man into doing something that is degrading and disgusting to him is a painful farce. The saddest part of all is that fact that, with very rare exceptions, most people will either outright ignore or ridicule the entire notion of a man who claims that another person has sexually assaulted him. While it might sound funny to some people, there is nothing funny about anybody getting raped.
Far too many women believe that they have got the monopoly on being sexually assaulted and abused. It is true that men do tend to be physically stronger, and that many kinds of sex acts do require that the man’s penis be erect. But whether or not an erection occurs, the fact is that sexuality consists of far more than simply inserting a penis into a vagina. In a situation where a woman uses force or coercision to get a man to do anything that he is genuinely unwilling to do (with a particular emphasis on providing oral sex or other alternative activities), rape has essentially occurred.
Sadly, far too many people just assume that men always “want it,” and that it could never be rape as a consequence of that. But what too often happens when a person (whether it be a man or a woman) rapes a man is that the guy is just too ashamed to come forward in the first place. After all, why admit to being “too weak” to fight off someone, if no one is going to believe what you say in the first place? No one really knows how often a man is sexually violated.
