I recently came across a poster that depicted a battered greek woman. She was covered in blood and the poster was about rape.
Why do rapists hit women while raping them? I don't get it.
I'm asking about this because I often fantasize about being raped, but none of my fantasies involve violence and I am handled gently.
Rape victims, male and female, are often times brutalized by the perpetrator.
That's not real rape OP.
Women will argue til they're blue in the face that rape is not sex, it's violence blah blah. But when a man get's hard and ejaculates, he just had sex- no matter if he had to hold a knife to her head to get it. Straight women can't admit this because then they'd have to accept that inside their beloved booboo is an animal who gets off on the little yelps of pain she emits during sex. Sticking things in all her holes, squirting on her face, etc. Men get off on the dirty- not Kama Sutra.
As for the slapping, it's probably just to keep the victim quiet.
Romantic love is a relatively modern adaption. When Early Man wanted sex he just took it.
A gently handled rape? Do you keep your reticule nearby so you can have access to your vinaigrette?
rape as I understand it is a Violent act, not necessarily a sexual one.
Rape is about power and control, OP.
The rapist doesn't give a damn what he has to do to get power and control over his victim. A lot of times, the more frightened she is, the better he likes it so he'll escalate his violence to get the same reaction.
Because rapists are sadists who hate women, because the rapist was trying to knock her out so she wouldn't put up a fight.
You should read Lucky by Alice Sebold for the detailed (and nauseating) account of her own rape. Before reading Lucky, I also didn't really understand how a typical rape occurs.
OP, what you've described about your fantasies is not rape rape.
For God's sake why didn't someone show R3's mother how to use a coat hanger?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
