Men Raping Women is Common. Can Women Rape Men?

Rapes are very common crimes around the world. Only in certain gulf countries where rapists are given death by stonning, rapes are rare. Rape is a heinous crime against women. It is an accepted notion that only men can rape and not vice-versa. In a recent case of rape in India, involving a film personality, it was argued by the wife of the accused in defence, that even women can rape men. Is this true and possible? Can women realistically rape man who is, by nature, physically more poweful than women.

I believe it's definitely "possible", the problem is that men most probably won't find it even insulting yet alone an offence if the girl is somewhat attractive. This is supposing there is no substantial "physical violence" involved (besides getting tied up or something). In the movie 40 days and 40 nights there was a scene that could pass as "a girl raping a guy".

Rape is rape and men who are raped (and yes it DOES and HAS happened) ARE insulted as you say, along with traumatized, ashamed, and everything else that comes along with being a rape victim..

Well i for one wouldn't really mind getting "raped" as in rohypnol fashion by an attractive lady but im pretty sure a girl would be traumatized no matter how attractive was the assailant. Of course the trauma could be the same for both sexes but i firmly believe this is not as often the case for men.

but i firmly believe this is not as often the case for men Have you ever actually talked to a man who's been raped??...have you ever done the research on it, gotten the facts? I've done both...believe me it IS the case.

Yea women can rape men and it happens far more than ppl care to realize partly because many ppl feel it impossible and partly because SO MANY cases go unreported by the male victim due to embarrassment and shame etc..but yes it can and does happen...

I see nothing funny about it first off and secondly a woman doesnt have to be weaker or stronger...physical strength has NOTHING to do with it when it comes to male rape..

I think women can seduce a man and cheat on him,which we can name rape too.But I doubt whether it is physically possible for a woman to rape a man under violence.Some woman are rough and tough and if they can have a weak man,then they could rape.But chances are very few as women don't like weak men.Cheers!
