Rape fantasies, oh my!

Required reading: Forced Affection, Marriage, Rank and Rape in the Tale of Genjii

If you’re not going to read at least one of the two linked articles, you’re not going to have a broader framework of what I’m about to say. At least for the first part.

The Historicity of Rape in Japan

We don’t like the act. Heck, the word itself is taboo in many societies. Or at least it’s pretending to be taboo in many societies.

Unfortunately, it’s part and parcel of Japan’s culture. Shocking? not really, if you look in the right places.

Yes people, in Japan rape does really mean hello, at least in the Heian Period. In fact it’s right there in their most famous work, The Tale Of Genjii.

Prince Genjii was a dashing, handsome, hunk of a man. He was also a high-ranking prince. And he was very very honorable. Unfortunately, he also liked women, and slept with many women, usually by force.

Disgusted? I’m not surprised.

Ever wondered why Japan has many, many problem with sex crimes? It’s because of their culture that tolerates sexual crime (in this case, rape) and in some cases, even promote it.

To drone on about the prevalance of rape in doujinshi and eroge and the like, in feudal Japan, a woman had no rights. If she was to be raped she had better well like it because the man won’t take no for an answer. And in some cases saying no could be worse.

It’s all there in The Tale Of Genjii. It does seem sexual deviancy is rife in Japan, what with it having a history of rape, sexual deviancy and all.

Wherein the Author Actually talks about Rape Fantasies

Sex was originally meant to be a physical symbol of love between a man and a woman.  There’s nothing dirty about seeing a truly loving couple enjoined in the throes of lovemaking. In fact I think it’s quite beautiful when done right.

Unfortunately, we all corrupt even the most beautiful things for for our own debased pleasure. Females develop rape fantasies simply because they cannot obtain the kind of love aforementioned.  Usually.

Why do they not find the kind of love I mentioned earlier? It’s because the woman (in most cases) simply isn’t mature enough to develop the patience and passion for a deep, meaningful relationship. To put it bluntly, she hasn’t grown up mentally.

A mentally mature adult knows how to wait. A child doesn’t. In most cases where the woman has rape fantasies, she wants the fleeting joy of being ‘attached’ to a man without wanting to develop the intellectual and emotional affection required to turn this base act into something different and beautiful. To put it really bluntly, Girl Want Sex Now. Relationship Come Later. The same applies to the man.

And that is why people have rape fantasies. Because people want the physical intimacy first without the mental, psychological and emotional attachment first. As a result of not being able to form deep, meaningful relationships with people.

Delicious sausage links:

Hinano (no Hinano, Japan does not think rape is wrong)
animemiz (Girl, go read The Tale Of Genjii)
Haruda (We actually trivialize rape in real life)
a Day without me (Japan and The West have vastly different views on sexual harrassment)
lelangir (I liek Yuu Watase)

    So…correct me if I’m wrong, but what you’re saying is that all women who have rape fantasies are simply immature and impatient?

    …That seems a little…narrow…

    Having a fuck buddy is acceped these days (for men and women), so why would anyone fantasize about rape because they want casual sex when they could have all of the casual sex they wanted without getting raped?

    I think people forget that “rape fantasy” isn’t like *real* rape, and that people who harbor rape fantasies generally don’t actually want to be raped in real life.

    Real-life rape is an act of power, anger, and violence. But in most of the rape fantasy I’ve encountered, the rape is an act of overwhelming passion; literally, the rapist just can’t contain him/herself because they are so completely attracted to the ‘victim.’

    Is it that hard to comprehend the desire to be found overwhelmingly attractive? (And why that would be a fantasy, and not something you’d want in reality?)

    I was kinda hinting at being not mature enough to form lasting, platonic relationships.

    gia: You forgot ‘not understanding females’.

    Some things to remember…

    1. You are a rapist if you get a girl drunk and have sex with her.

    2. You are a rapist if you find a drunk girl and have sex with her.

    3. You are a rapist if you get yourself drunk and have sex with her. Your drunkeness is no excuse.

    4. If you are BOTH drunk you may still be a rapist.

    5. If she’s alternating between puking her guts out and passing out in the bed then you’re a rapist.

    6. If she’s sleeping and you have sex with her you’re a rapist.

    7. If she’s unconscious and you have sex with her then you’re a rapist.

    8. If she’s taking sleeping pills and doesn’t wake up when you have sex with her then you’re a rapist.

    9. If she is incapacitated in any way and unable to say ‘Yes’ then you’re a rapist.

    10. If you drug her then you’re a rapist.

    11. If you find a drugged girl and have sex with her then you’re a rapist.

    12. If you don’t bother to ask her permission and she says neither ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ then you could be a rapist.

    13. You are a rapist if you ‘nag’ her for sex. Because you manage to ply an eventual ‘yes’ from a weary victim doesn’t mean it’s not rape. You are a rapist.

    14. You are a rapist if you try to circumvent her “No” by talking her into it. She’s not playing hard to get, and, even if she IS it’s not YOUR responsibility to ‘get’ her. You’re still a rapist.

    15. You are a rapist if you manipulate her into sex when she doesn’t otherwise want it. If you say, “If you loved me you’d do X” then you’re a rapist. If you say, “All the other kids are doing it!” then you’re a rapist.

    16. If you threaten her, or act in a way that SHE thinks you’re threatening her then you’re a rapist. If you puff up and get loud and frustrated while trying to ‘talk’ her into sex then you’re a rapist.

    17. You are a rapist if you don’t immediately get your hands off of her when she says ‘no’. You are a rapist if you take your hands off of her and then put them back ON her after 10 minutes and she eventually ‘gives in’ to this tactic.

    18. You are a rapist if you won’t let her sleep peacefully without waking her every 15 minutes asking her for sex. Sleep depravation is a form of torture and YOU are a rapist.

    19. If you’re necking with her and you’re naked and you’ve already gone down on her and she says ‘No’ to sex with you and you have sex with her anyway then you’re a rapist.

    20. If you’re engaged in intercourse and she says ‘No’ at ANY point and you don’t immediately stop then you’re a rapist.

    21. If she said “Yes” to sex with a condom and that condom breaks and you proceed anyway then you’re a rapist.

    22. If she picked you up at a bar looking for sex and then decides that she doesn’t WANT sex and you continue then you’re a rapist.

    23. If she changes her mind at ANY point for ANY reason and you don’t immediately back off or you try to talk her into it and get sex anyway then you’re a rapist.

    24. If you don’t hit her and she says ‘No’ you’re still a rapist.

    25. If you don’t have a knife or a gun or a garrote and she says ‘No’ then you’re still a rapist.

    26. If you’re a friend of hers you can still be a rapist.

    27. If you had sex with her the night before but she doesn’t want morning sex and you pressure her for it anyway then you’re a rapist.

    28. If you’re her husband you can still be a rapist.

    29. If it’s your wedding night and she doesn’t WANT to have sex with you and you force or coerce her anyway then you’re a rapist.

    30. If she’s had sex with you hundreds of times before but doesn’t want to on the 101st time then you’re a rapist.

    31. If you penetrate her anally, orally or digitally against her will then YOU my friend, are ALSO a rapist.

    32. Women do not owe you sex.

    33. Buying her dinner does not entitle you to sex.

    34. Paying her mortgage does not entitle you to sex.

    35. Buying her clothing does not entitle you to sex.

    36. Buying her lingerie does not entitle you to sex. It also doesn’t mean that she has any obligation to wear that lingerie around you.

    37. Spending any amount of money on her does not, ever, entitle you to sex.

    38. Seeing her legs or cleavage does not entitle you to sex.

    39. If she ‘turns you on’ you’re not entitled to sex.

    40. If she has fucked every man in a 10 square mile radius and she doesn’t want to fuck you and you have sex with her anyway, then you’re a rapist.

    41. Her clothing is not a reason for you to rape her. Her LACK of clothing is no reason to rape her. If she’s wearing a thong and pasties you STILL have no right to rape her.

    42. If she’s a prostitute and she says “No” then you’re a rapist.

    43. If she’s a stripper and she says “No” then you’re a rapist. Likewise, if she’s a stripper and she’s been rubbing against your dick all night long and you follow her to her car and have sex with her against her will then you are ALSO a rapist.

    44. If you watch a woman being raped without calling the authorities then you’re as bad as a rapist and you may also be a rapist yourself.

    45. If you don’t fight rape then you accept rape.

    46. If you don’t believe a woman when she says she was raped then you’re encouraging rape.

    47. If you choose to remain friends with a man who raped a woman you are encouraging rape.

    48. If you confess to the authorities that you raped a woman it does not exonerate you. You are not suddenly a model of good behavior.

    49. If you ‘only’ raped one woman, you’re STILL a rapist.

    50. You cannot tell who is a rapist by the way they look. Rapists are your friends, your brothers, your fathers and you won’t know it.

    51. Do not get frustrated with a woman if she doesn’t trust you. SHE already knows that rapists don’t wear signs on their foreheads. Something you think is innocuous SHE may find terrifying.
