No, I don't think it is - if he REALLY didn't want to, he wouldn't. Unless she physically forced him to, it's not rape. Exerting peer pressure isn't the same as forcing someone to do something.

No. I don't think it's fair to use the word 'rape' for that situation, because it's kind of insulting to people who have been actual victims of rape attacks.

Quite apart from anything else, owing to the mechanics of the male anatomy it would be impossible if he didn't want to!

No.. that is a called the boy being a pansy for not being able to say no.

It's deplorable coertion, and is very wrong, but not rape, there's no phsyical force, or any type of mind altering drug being given without consent.

*Man*ipulation into sex is not right, but I wouldn't call it rape.

What Bon said.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/23/03 - 12:01:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, because rape involves force.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/23/03 - 12:03:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Date Rape does not necessarily involve force.

It's not rape unless she physically forces him or gives him a roofie to make him have sex with her. If she didn't drug him, she would have to tie him down, get him erect, and then have sex with him while he either just laid there or struggled against her...

Also, what woman would want to have sex with someone who didn't want it? Jesus.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/23/03 - 1:47:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, because if she coerced him into having sex with her, it means he eventually gave his consent. I agree whole heartedly with unhailey.

Not if she didn't physically make him.

No, it's the use of social pressure and coercion. The boy has sex of his own accord, albeit reluctantly, as I'm sure many people have when they're tired and their partner wants it. Rape, on the other hand, requires an unwilling participant.

Estella has nailed this one!!!!
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 4/1/04 - 9:07:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
girls don't even get charged with rape.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 4/1/04 - 9:10:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
how could a girl get charged with rape?? well unless the guy was drugged or drunk or something... but without that, even if a guy doesnt consent in his mind or with his words, he consents somewhere else...
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 4/1/04 - 10:28:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
"but without that, even if a guy doesnt consent in his mind or with his words, he consents somewhere else..."

But he doesn't have control over that.

Although in said case of the question, it's deplorable, but not rape.
16 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Thursday 4/1/04 - 11:07:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
The only legal way to consider it rape would be if he were a minor, but I agree with estella.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 4/17/04 - 12:12:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, just like it's not rape if a guy pesters the girl until she consents.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 4/18/04 - 6:52:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Supreme Court (Sorry Europe and Canada, but I don't care about your legal systems) has already made the ruling that a woman cannot rape.

So even if she put a knife to his throat and told him to, it wouldn't be rape. Just assault.

I am so sad...I just found out I made a guy have sex with me unwillingly. He didn't tell me he didn't want to have sex until after the fact. I feel bad now.

"Quite apart from anything else, owing to the mechanics of the male anatomy it would be impossible if he didn't want to!"

Speaking from experience that is complete and utter bullsh*t!
