That's not the point, it's not about how they view sex. It's about the view of the victims and the rapists know damn well what they are taking away from the victim, and that's why they do it.

Not to mention the incredible power of taking away from a person for the rest of their life their trust of men and their feeling of safety. That might return in some small and different form, but it will never ever be what it was before a rape.

The point is that the motives behind rape have nothing to do with desire for sex. Sex is the weapon, and that has nothing to do with pregnancy or anything else.

By dissociating rape from sex completely it invalidates the arguments that it was because of the way she looked or behaved absolutely. Now this is good because in the violation of another human being like that fault lies exclusively with the perpetrator; but at the same time it may remove a component that could be useful in preventing rapes or punishing (thinking along the lines of chemical castration).
