Predictors of Sexual Coercion Against Women and Men: A Multilevel, Multinational Study of University Students

Probably one of the more important studies when we talk about raped males. More important, because it is one of the few large scale studies that ask for male victimization.
The current study is the largest and most comprehensive study to date to investigate these issues, in that there were data on sexual coercion and revictimization on both men and women from 38 sites around the world
The source is here, the results in neat table form:
Forced sex:              almost 3.0%             2.3%
-forced oral/anal sex:          2.4%             1.6%
-forced vaginal sex:            2.1%             1.6%

Verbal Coercion:               22.0%     almost 25.0%
- insisted on sex w/o condom   13.5%            11.0%
- insisted on vaginal sex      11.7%            14.7%
- insisted on oral/anal sex     7.5%             8.3%
- threatend into oral/anal sex  1.9%             1.7%
- threatend into vaginal sex    1.9%             1.8%

At least one type of CSA       30.0%            32.0%
7,667 university students on 38 sites asked about their vitimizations with their current or most recent partner. Certainly not a result a feminist would have suspected.


  1. That left me open with my mouth like a fool... And I'm used to finding out how much media twists things. This was definitely an eye-opener. Huge thanks!

  2. So when you apply the feminist definition of rape... 1 in 4 men are raped too.

  3. Well, there's a big problem with the data.

    "People with more masculine identities are more likely
    to coerce sex, whereas those with more feminine identities
    are more likely to be the victims of sexual coercion in romantic relationships (Poppen & Segal, 1988)."

    " Almost all of the classes
    were introductory level psychology, sociology, and criminal justice studies courses; thus, the majority of the sample
    consisted of female college students."

    Basically, the data from the men is data from more "feminine" and equal men, which leads them to be used in a greater extent. If they were to do the same research on hockey-players I'm fairly sure the results of abuse against men would be different.

  4. "People with more masculine identities are more likely
    to coerce sex, whereas those with more feminine identities
    are more likely to be the victims of sexual coercion in romantic relationships (Poppen & Segal, 1988)."

    That wasn't from the research in this particular study, but part of the literature review. It's a possible predictive factor; not proven.

    Also, wouldn't women who go into psychology likely be more feminine then average too?

  5. More Men are forced to have sex than women are, and now there is proof.
