    Whenever there is a case of a woman raping a man all you hear is ''oh but woman can't rape men'' or '' the law says woman legally can't rape men''

    I'm fairly certain that if a woman inserts a penetrative object into a man without his consent this is legally rape.

    More to the point this article although three years old shows that it is perfectly possible for a woman to rape a man:

    What do you think?

    If you were the man would you feel violated?

    That example's a bit awkward because technically it's not her penetrating him unwantedly, it's her forcing him to penetrate her unwantedly. Which, granted, is still forced sex. I'm not sure where this post is going, just wanted to point out that technicality.

    I suppose a woman raping a man (up the botty) would be classed as sodomy rather than rape, which is all kinds of messed up as if the roles were reversed it would definitely count as anal rape and not sodomy.

    She uses drugs to keep him sustained however. I believe this a really freak example and you would never see this happen again.

    I'm fairly certain the law classifies any phallic shape object used on a man without consent is illegal?

    I want to know whether they think the man should feel violated

    I read about it at the time with a very "wtf?" expression on my face.

    Indeed, and so it should be. But it's the technicality I'm interested in. Should it be considered rape, or sodomy? Personally, I'm in favour of the former (being that rape is unwanted penetration).

    However, in the article she wasn't using a phallic object on him so much as using him or herself. Splitting hairs, you understand. But I think it's an important distinction to make. Which begs the question, is it rape?

    I dunno about you, but if someone forced me to have sex I'd certainly feel violated! At the very least it'd be a violation of my (very) personal space, and an exploitation of my anatomy (if someone was to do to me what the salon worker did). In that example, I'd say that it's definitely forced sex, but whether it's rape or not is a grey area as nothing is penetrating him.

    tbh, I was spiked by a girl in a club and apparently I got off with her without my consent... so I class that as rape.

    Mhmm, I think sodomy would have to be consented, say if a man penetrated a woman anally it would be rape.

    I know, that's what I find interesting about the situation, it's technically not illegal but the man couldn't do anything about it as he was tied up. It would be even worse if she was really fat or something :laugh:

    I'd say the same, unless she was really fit or something but imagine having a boner for three days straight :ashamed2:

    Not legally. You can be put inside for sodomising someone. This poor guys tale springs immediately to mind.

    I wouldn't say that it wasn't technically not illegal so much as it wasn't technically rape. Was she done for sexual assault or rape?The article doesn't say.

    I don't think it's possible for a woman to rape a real man, if you aren't stronger than a woman (if you're both adults) then you're not a real man.

    Hate it when people say 'b-b-but a man can't be raped because if he has an erection that means he wants it.' Imagine the response from feminists if someone said 'if the girl gets wet, it can't be rape, she wants it.'

    My lord the poor guy, interesting the word sodimised is used. Maybe it doesn't count as rape? Although this is the US law not UK law. Only in America would you get this kind of police brutality :naughty:

    I don't actually know because there isn't much information on the story, all I know is that she was arrested. :hmmmm2:

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the law say rape is the act of putting a "penis" somewhere ?

    Hence legally, only men can rape.
    I think you're right, I thought I read somewhere about it also being a phallic object.

    However I did some reading and in some states in the US rape laws have been amended so that women can be charged with rape

    1-(1) A person (A) commits an offence if—

    (a) he intentionally penetrates the vagina, anus or mouth of another person (B) with his penis,
    (b) B does not consent to the penetration, and
    (c) A does not reasonably believe that B consents.
    So in English law, not rape.

    This should be changed, however.

    Exactly.

    Not only that, but the law explicitly refers to a "he", whereas the victim is referred to as a "person".

    Here is the actual line from the law:

    he intentionally penetrates the vagina, anus or mouth of another person (B) with his penis,
