Anatomy- Sexual arousal during rape or sexual assault

Anatomy- Sexual arousal during rape or sexual assault

(gender inclusive)

I’ve seen quite a few comments on threads about rape and sexual assault in which the arousal of the victim is discussed as a reason to believe that the person wasn’t misused. That they “enjoyed” the assault because they were aroused. It leads me to believe they need a brushup on their anatomy.

It’s also used against men who come forward to say they were used by a woman and some people can’t imagine how a woman could rape a man. If he had a hard-on, was he raped? Yes he was.If he didn’t consent!

So how does this happen? Because our bodies are designed to be aroused by stimulation. Esp when we’re pubescent, during our monthly hormonal flux and in peri-menopause. Then our skin is hypersensitive and our clothes can get us half way there. It’s as easy as breathing.

It’s far more likely we’ll be aroused than not. Because someone is rubbing our last nerve.

It has next to nothing to do with whether we want sex with this person or not. Now or not. So try to be more sensitive.
