Often the topic of serious debate is the fact of whether or not a man can be raped or sexually assaulted by a woman. The argument states that on one side, arousal is consent. The other side is that an erection is a physical, sometimes uncontrollable, reaction to stimulation. So I pose two questions that seem logical that you can debate or leave your thoughts on.
1. Assuming that a woman can and does over power a man, and she forces him into sexual penetration despite his very vocal refusal even though his physical response results in erection, can this still be termed as rape?
2. A grown man, however the situation occurs, finds himself being fondled by a girl who is underage (say 12 to 17), maybe he was asleep or she was sitting beside him and takes the initiative to engage him. Though he pushes her off, tells her no, says this is inappropriate and she does stop, so no further sexual act is preformed, but the initial fondling (even if only through his pants) results in an erection, does this mean that he is a pedophile? Do you feel that it was the underage girl that aroused him or the fact that his genitalia was being stimulated? Could or should he be at fault over this? Should he be held accountable (remember nothing further happened, he told her to stop and she does, but he was still aroused). This is totally hypothetical and I don't know of any real case of this happening. I am sure that it probably has at some point but I am unaware of it actually happening.
I thought of these two scenarios after watching an episode of Law and Order : SVU.
The floor is open for debate.
