the question of rape is complicated. was she raped of her innocence, of her childhood? absolutely. but i'm not so sure i can say that she was physically raped. it's an interesting discussion, though. unfortunately, we only get a one-sided narrative, and hum's perception of things is a bit flawed, to say the least.
That brings into mind the other big theme in Lolita, that we are all solipsistic to some degree. Who knows, Lo might tell a completely different story, one that isn't a story of exploitation. Note that it's not Lo in the end who utters those memorable lines "He broke my heart. You merely broke my life." Instead it's Hum's assumption of how she feels.

You mentioned Lo being raped of innocence/childhood, I think this reflects society's tendency to regard children as completely separate beings, even more so today, and our romantic ideals of childhood innocence. A topic I am greatly interested in.
