  • Start with men are more a visual gender than women and work from there.

    Also I believe adult men are more likely to rape other adult men than adult women rape adult guys.

    In society do many guys get cat calls and whistles as they walk down the street?

    In a pub or club do many guys get their ass felt or hand on their cocks?

    Are there many jokes about women raping guys, or are the jokes mainly Guys raping girls ( or other guys).

    Do movies and video games casually sexualise guys?

    There is no denying guys in likely 90% (or more) are the dominant partner in a relationship.

    It’s also deep routed in the culture, look at Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, a lot of Africa.

    If you add in a country to the Question. Why in India…

    Then you have this thing where male rape is glossed over, in this case it’s male on male rape, which if you read the article is not covered by the UN.

    it’s often viewed as a way guys outside of society can get sex, however then you look at the number of high level sports people, celebs etc that get arrested for it.

    Also it’s not just because a girl looks hot.

    there is also the mental physical thing of it, if you hold a gun to a guy or terrorise him, chances of him getting a hard on are slim.

    hold a gun or knife to a girl and terrorise her, chances are the guy is going to be hard.

    yes granted the law here covers for fact you can be raped with an object, that’s going to be even less.

    no stats to cover this other than how I see it, but female on male rapes are more likely going to be where consent without violence is used, sex while he sleeps, or is drunk, you don’t get many girls walking around with strap on dildos raping guys, I would put money on it happening but not going to be many.

    whereas male rape of women can also include without consent using violence and non violent methods.

    I have read about numerous female pensioners being raped but never read about a male pensioner being raped by a woman.

  • It's certainly not as easy for a woman to rape a man, I mean physically. Most men are ashamed of being raped and the fact is very few are ever believed. I never reported mine back when I was a young man, because even my friends didn't believe me or didn't believe it was rape or sexual assault. I don't even know if I could have reported it back then if the law would even have been in place unless it was male on male rape. They assumed that because I went along with it, it was because I wanted her to, the truth of the matter was I didn't want it at all, and she was blackmailing me. QI had no choice at the time and was trapped in the situation.. People always assume men can't be raped because all men want sex right? Yeah well not with anyone, especially not with someone 30 years your senior.
    I do think men rape more than women because some men are more animalistic than women, and also have more trouble controlling their urges. But I also think the number of female on males rape is a much greater figure than is known about.

    • A lot of that I agree with for sure.

  • I think it's because of physical force. Most men are physically stronger than women so it's easier for a man to harass a woman than the reverse, also women are usually told to deal with it rather than defend themselves while men are told to defend themselves (of not they're seen as wimp). At least in my country it's like this.

    • Yep! 100% Bingo! “Jake, Tell her what she’s won”! “Thaaaats right Alice, you’ve just won a years supply of Rice-a-Roni. Rice-a-Roni, the San Francisco Treat! That’s not all, you also get a five year subscription to Readers Digest! “‘Readers Digest, Hey! It’s not JUST for dental waiting rooms” aaand…. A NEW CAR 🚗! This Brand New 1983 Chevrolet Chevette, should not even exist, we just found in the back of an old warehouse we’d forgotten we own!,”

  • They’re both equally bad but the second one is much rarer

    • I feel like it’s not quite easy talking to you. You like to mince words and go around topics. Perhaps someone getting to know you well means you being more direct/honest during talk.

    • Not really lol

    • Evidence says otherwise

  • If you think about it, most crime is about someone wanting something that someone else has, and being unable or unwilling to earn it the legal way, and so they take it illegally.

    I'd guess that 2/3 of rapes are someone feeling entitled to sex and taking it because they can. The other third is mostly people using rape as an act of terror, either to assert power and control (usually by people who have little power or control) or by pure psychopaths.

    I would guess that most female rapists fall in the second group, because few women have trouble getting sex - that whole group hardly exists among women.

  • Men hardly report it out of fear of being less manly. Those that do are hardly ever believed.

    • So, you believe it’s equal or women are actually raping and sexually assaulting men more than vice versa, but men are just not reporting it?

  • Typo? What is the question?

    • Oh, I didn’t even notice. Correcting now

    • I think men are biologically disposed to violence at a much greater level than women.

  • You should answer this.

  • Because men are by default attracted to the majority of women while the reverse is true and because men are physically superior.

  • Probably also to do with males being more likely to commit crime or violent crime then women

    • Yeah, I’m sure there’s some connection with that.

  • Because women don't have to rape men. If a woman wants a man, she just asks him for sex and he gives it to her.

    Also, a woman wouldn't be able to rape a man if she tried. She isn't strong enough.

  • Seriously

  • Because on average men are more violent than women there are more male criminals than female criminals
