another aspect to this

Date: Thursday, May 19th, 2011 04:21 pm (UTC)
Ok, I've never been raped and don't know much about it, but another thing I keep thinking of is how likely in these various situations is murder to accompany the rape?

I tend to hear about a lot of cases of the 2 or 3 type where the attacker rapes and then murders (or attempts to murder) the victim. In those scenarios I'd not only be sexually violated, but I'd also be fearing for my life.

But I suppose it's possible that the rapists in 1 and 4 are just as likely to end up murdering their victims. It just seems less likely to me for some reason (maybe because when a woman ends up dead, her husband or boyfriend is assumed to be the prime suspect).

So I think I would view 1 and 4 as a great violation of trust, but 2 and 3 would be an "I almost died" situation on top of a rape, like being robbed at gunpoint or being in a serious car accident.

(On the other hand, I HAVE almost died before, but I haven't been raped before, so maybe that's why my mind is fixating on that.)
