The men were not asked questions directly by a researcher. Instead, drunk men sat alone and answered questions on an iPod touch. The survey also didn't use the word rape.
The men responded to questions about whether they'd ever forced someone to have sex or whether they'd ever had intercourse with a woman who was too drunk or drugged to give her consent.
The survey was conducted in six different rape.
Rates of rape varied widely. For instance, in Bangladesh, 11 percent of men said they'd forced someone to have sex at some point in time. In Papua New Guinea, 61 percent of men confessed to having done so. James Lang, one of the authors of the report, says many other studies of sexual violence gathered information from the victims. But his team really wanted to understand what was driving the perpetrators. We asked them why they did it.
Myths about rape
And the most common answer by far was this sense of sexual entitlement; that men felt entitled to women's bodies regardless of consent. Lang says these men had, in his words, narrow views about the roles of women in society. He says the men also tended to have very narrow, rape visions of men. You know, men who believed that men must be in control; that men must be tough and able to use violence, and that men should be sexually dominant.
Myths vs realities
Those men that held those kinds of visions of manhood were much, much more likely to use violence. Another finding from the survey was that more than half of the men who said they had raped a woman, said they'd first done so while they were still teenagers.
Lang says these types of details from the survey offer hope because, combined with data that show low rates of rape in some other communities, this information can help point out where anti-violence messages should chris rock how not to get your ass kicked targeted. I think the numbers are shocking.
The prevalence is shocking because we don't like to think that this is happening. Asian, who's studied rape and domestic violence around the world, says however that people shouldn't be all that shocked by this study because its simply confirming what women have been saying for years.
She says it's now generally accepted that globally, 1 out of every 3 women will be sexually assaulted at some point in asian life. So when you consider the data that, the evidence that we have about victimization among women, the prevalence of perpetration is not at all surprising.
