Sexual behavior of assailants during reported rapes



Sexual behavior of assailants during reported rapes



Archives of Sexual Behavior 9(5): 427-440



The forced sexual, excretory and sadistic acts that occur during rape were reported. The main sample consisted of 115 adult, adolescent and child rape victims that were admitted during a 1 yr period to the emergency wards of a large municipal hospital. Forced vaginal intercourse was the most frequent act reported, but many other acts also occurred, ranging from fellatio and cunnilingus to urinating on the victim. Various social-psychological meanings are attached to forced sexual acts, most notably power, anger and male camaraderie. Pair/group rape differs from single-assailant rape in the emphasis placed on watching and taking turns. Analyzing the social meanings attached to forced sex makes a contribution to knowledge about the use of sex to express nonsexual issues.
