According to a paper published in the American Psychological Association journal Psychology of Men and Masculinity, 43% of high school and college-aged men say they have had "unwanted sexual contact," and 95% of those say a female acquaintance was the aggressor!
Researchers surveyed 284 young men and found that 18% reported sexual coercion by force, 31% said they were verbally coerced sex, while 26% said they had experienced "unwanted seduction by sexual behaviors." Half of those surveyed said they ended up having sex against their will, 10% said sex was attempted, and 40% said the coercion resulted in fondling or kissing.
Dr. Bryana French, who teaches counseling psychology and black studies at University of Missouri and co-authored the study, said that male victims are often less willing to describe sexual coercion in detail, "but when asked if it happened, they say it happened."
What the hell? Aren't men were supposed to actually get aroused in order to perform and complete the act?
French says that the study defined "sex" as oral, vaginal, or anal, so it's possible that the sex didn't involve an erection. But she also said that it's not impossible for men to have an erection even if they don't want to have sex. "Sometimes when women are experiencing sexual violence, their bodies respond in ways that don't correspond to how they feel," she said. "They can not want the experience to happen, even if their bodies said otherwise."
Yup, we're just as confused as you are. But French's survey sample was small, and she hopes her research helps upend our assumptions about sexual violence and gender. "That's an unfortunate myth, that men can't be raped by women," she said. "This is not to deny the gendered impact of sexual violence, but it's important not to ignore that men are victimized too."
On the off chance that given the decision, we're almost certain nobody would pick to be in a long distance relationship. Without a doubt, non-appearance influences the heart to become fonder, yet we're calling bullsh*t on that one: being separated from the individual you adore is hard. What's more, to influence it to work - and keep it a sound, useful and sexual, you need to invest effort, responsibility and well, get somewhat innovative. Read more
Life is a precious gift, but it’s all too easy to take it for granted. We assume we’re going to wake up each morning, and may have grievances about our work, or our neighbors, or the weather. We worry about things that we have no control over. All of these things may mean we’re not taking opportunities that are presented to us and we’re not living life to the full because we’re always looking for the negative. Read more
