Quote:
And, because we had previously shown that nearly one million incidents of sexual victimization happen in our nation’s prisons and jails each year, we knew that no analysis of sexual victimization in the U.S. would be complete without a look at sexual abuse happening behind bars. We found that, contrary to assumptions, the biggest threat to women serving time does not come from male corrections staff. Instead, female victims are more than three times as likely to experience sexual abuse by other women inmates than by male staff.

Also surprisingly, women inmates are more likely to be abused by other inmates than are male inmates, disrupting the long held view that sexual violence in prison is mainly about men assaulting men. In juvenile corrections facilities, female staff are also a much more significant threat than male staff; more than nine in ten juveniles who reported staff sexual victimization were abused by a woman

Ditto for the thanks, and it is not surprising given the data on domestic violence now that I think about it.

This is just calling people stupid. "All you need to do".

Go ahead and explain why there are millions of people who would like to have sex but can't find someone to have it willingly with them.

Most forego sex with another person and masturbate to my likeness, both male and female.

Gary Ridgeway, Ted Bundy, etc: a lot of the greats had relationships or were married and went about raping/killing dozens of people while they carried on what their partner believed to be a normal loving relationship.

Sabrina has given lots of material on various motivations for rape, there's plenty of variety.

dann really, you have such a puerile assertion here, the very existence of rape contradicts it.

So Dann, do you have a basic idea of what you would like the Grand Unifying Theory of what Makes People Want to Have Sex with Unwilling Partners to look like? If you give us a rough schematic idea, we can probably start constructing an answer that would satisfy you (That's what she said).

I think the answer is supposed to be one of the below:

What makes some people want to have sex with unwilling 'partners?'

a.) Omg, I can't understand it either! It's beyond understanding, terrible.

b.) They don't actually enjoy it - enjoying it is impossible, something else is driving them.

c.) They are just Complete Monsters, but trying to analyze just what that means makes you an advocate of forced sex and a poopyhead!

I've narrowed it down to these possibilities by process of elimination.

Well, yes - it is incoherent. So the fascination becomes what is the poster doing. No accusation of nefarious intent here - but curiousity about what explaines the incoherency.

I accept other people work differently from me. The evidence is overwhelming.

I have a morbid fascination with Serial Killers. Although my favorite is not considered one because he was a mob hit man. Kuklinsky. But he didn't rape victims. He was an assassin. And I understand exactly what created him. He doesn't feel one way or the other about his victims, it neither thrills him nor bothers him. It's the money.

But a lot of the greats (sarcasm) were rapists. Cannibals. Sadists.

If you have difficulty "understanding" then look at people like Leonard Lake and Charles Ng. The Miranda Project: Lake wrote a book about their intentions, so there's no mistaking the horror.

and there are one-off rapists who got drunk with a woman and went too far. You have sex with barnyard animals going on, and it's been going on for thousands of years. Everything from A to Z.

The fact one does not rape barn animals should not prohibit one from acknowledging people who do are wired differently. It's self-evident to me.

Actually, I always got the feeling that this whole thread is Dann's way of saying to the world "Look! I'm so normal that I can't conceive at all how someone would do something like that in any circumstance. Can you guys help me? I really wanna try to figure it out, but me being so normal, it seems impossible to do. Maybe you happen to know a sick person who can try to relate to us why they are so sick?"

Bingo.

He seemed far more interested in finding some "sicko" to focus his rage/superiority on then any intellectually or emotionally honest answers to his question.

What I don't understand is the animosity in Dann's posts. None of us here, including him, are experts in human psychology as far as I know. We don't know the real answer (do experts even know?), but we are making some thoughtful attempts to address the question as best we can. But it seems everything we say is met with derision and dismissal. No fun.

What makes someone want to have an argument with an unwilling partner?

I have a bachelor's degree in psychology, but as that was granted nearly seventeen years ago now and I moved on to work in an entirely different line of employment (although I suppose one could argue there's a slight level of psychology applicable in analysis), I would very much hesitate to claim any miniscule level of expertise in the subject.

I'm with xjx388 and Roboramma on this one; theprestige pretty much summed up the thread.

Norwegian peer reviewed research. From the abstract:

Quote:
Results: Of the 1500 questionnaires sent out, 527 responses were received. A total of 480 had lived with the partner and were included in the study, and 5.8 per cent of these reported sexual coercion by the partner. Sexual coercion is associated with both physical and psychological violence as well as actions by the partner that make it difficult for the woman to stay in paid employment. There is a clear correlation between increasing psychological violence and sexual coercion. The more often a woman is subjected to various acts of dominance and isolation, or emotional and verbal abuse, the more sexual coercion she will experience.
Sexual coercion in marriage or cohabitating relationships is linked to other types of intimate partner violence (Sykepleien.no, June 26/28, 2018)

Any advances on finding the Universal Unifying Theory of why some people like to engage in sex with unwilling partners?
The psychology boards worldwide would surely appreciate that information.

Any advances on finding anything other than your tired old strawman?!

I'm still waiting on Dr. Shemer to weigh in.

A new article in The Atlantic has this to say about "the great majority of rapists":

Quote:
The Case Western research also showed that the great majority of rapists are generalists, or “one-man crime waves.” “They will steal your car, they will steal your watch, and they will steal sex, so to speak, if they can get away with it,” says Neil Malamuth, a psychologist at UCLA. “They are antisocial folks who will commit all sorts of antisocial behavior, including but not limited to sexual aggression.” And eventually, experts say, generalists slip up and get caught.
(…)
“These are not the Napoleons of crime,” Tim McGinty told me. He paused, reflecting on those 7,000 rape kits sitting in storage in Cleveland while the perpetrators were free on the streets. “They’re morons. We were letting morons beat us.”
An Epidemic of Disbelief – What new research reveals about sexual predators, and why police fail to catch them (The Atlantic, August 2019 Issue)

For most of you, the article is probably tl;dr, but I can recommend it to those of you who are also interested in the second half, "why police fail to catch them".

I guess that it won't be difficult to anticipate theprestige's comment:

Yes, I do have something to add. More research about rapists, as you can see in post 359.
