Eventually women relax


MYTH: Women eventually relax and enjoy it.  They secretly want to be raped


FACT: There is a widely held belief that women enjoy rape or that it is 'just sex at the wrong time, in the wrong place'.  Rape is a crime of sexual violence and humiliation which can involve being beaten, physical restraint, the use of knives and sticks, urination and defecation.  Studies have consistently shown that most rapes involve physical force to some degree.  Often when a woman is raped she is afraid that she will be killed - rapists often use the threat of killing a woman or her children to ensure her 'submission' and her silence after the attack.  Women do not enjoy sexual violence.  Victims of murder, robbery and other crimes are never portrayed as enjoying the experience.
