What I don't understand about rape and violence

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.

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?
