“The most traumatic part was the complete assumption of consent,” he tells me nearly two decades later. “I was physically revolted by the experience. It just felt so shockingly wrong.” We coin consent into a context of willing participation while assuming that because a male can become erect and ejaculate it is always consensual. An erection is a passive reaction. When female teachers rape male students the discussion often goes away from rape and into "he is one lucky kid, I would have tapped that." Or even in the instance of Shia LaBeouf's rape statements and the outright discussion of how he wasn't raped. We have this internalized assumption that an erection is an action that informs consent. Simply because a person is erect and even has an orgasm they have consented to sex. But, one of the curious things many don't discuss is the fact that some individuals can have an orgasm without their penis being touched. A transgender female can still ejaculate while being penetrated from the stimulation in her prostrate. As well as a cisgender man can because orgasm is a secondary part of sexual activity. I have no understanding of a cisgender female's body or reactions, however I would assume they are capable of having an orgasm during rape without consenting to the rape.
Approximately 30% of sexual assault cases are reported to authorities.
Men reported being “made to penetrate” at virtually the same rates as women reported rape
LGBTQ youth report a 30 percent incidence of dating violence, compared to 9 percent for heterosexual students.
Why these statistics are probably underestimates:
In asking 40,000 households about rape and sexual violence, the survey uncovered that 38 percent of incidents were against men.
One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years old
