Let's talk about SEX...

The way we talk about sex and sexual issues has changed dramatically in the past 15 years, a new study shows.

But researchers say men and women still don’t seem to see eye to eye when it comes to sensitive sexual subjects, such as rape and orgasm.

The study shows that the term “rape” is viewed much more negatively by both men and women than it was 15 years ago. The word prompted the most negative response of any sexual term among a group of male college students, but for women the most adverse reaction was associated with the term “date rape.”

"We interpreted these differences to possibly mean that rape to a man is a crime he can be charged with,” says researcher Virginia Noland, professor in health science education at the University of Florida, in a news release, “whereas date rape in his eyes is almost like an act of passion or something he doesn’t see himself as having much control over.”

How would you explain the difference in response?

Perhaps it deals with the concept of consent and the uncertainty created by subjective standards.

Women, however, rated the following terms more positively than men:


—Erection

—Oral sex

—Pornography

Once again

evidence women are smarter than men

The comment is based on the researcher's attempt to explain the difference in men's responses to the term rape and date rape.

My guess is that men see "rape" as a clear criminal concept where the lack of consent is not in question.

My guess is that men see "date rape" as somewhat more ambiguous if it hinges on a subsequent determination of whether a couple consensually engaged in sexual activity.

i kind of agree. i think there's an implicit understanding that rape has a clearly malevolent intent, it's clearly criminal and often violent. "date rape" enters murkier waters -- where i went to college, in MA, a woman is considered unable to give legal consent if she's had even a single drink of alcohol. i think this is an area where we need more clarity, and maybe new terminology.

Rape can be such a screwy subject. I think date rapists should get the same treatment as any rapist, because it was still their intention. One thing that makes me oppose very strict sentences for rape (such as treat it as if it were a murder) is that alcohol is often involved. The woman can get very drunk, consent, and wake up without the partner, thinking she was raped. I have some doubts on the credibility of those who claim that 1/4 of all women will be raped.

Kind of contradicting don't you think? First you say date rape should be treated like rape and then you say there are ambiguous lines of consent when it comes to date rape. There doesn't even have to be alcohol involved, sometimes it's just guilt or vendictiveness that will make a woman "change her mind" and claim rape. I've seen both sides of the story.
