What is consider as rape in one country may not be considered as a rape in another country. Sweden counts every single rape of a wife by her husband as a separate crime, whereas here in America a man raping his wife multiple times is generally considered just a single crime. This makes rape statistics somewhat difficult to compare, but as can be seen from the chart above, the rape rate in America, however measured, is higher than in most other developed countries.

7-25-19 Forced penetration: If a woman forces a man to have sex, is that rape?
When a man has penetrative sex with a woman without her consent, that's rape. But what if a woman makes a man have penetrative sex with her, without his consent? That's not rape under the law of England and Wales, but the author of a new study of the phenomenon says perhaps it should be. Dr Siobhan Weare of Lancaster University Law School carried out the first research into forced penetration in the UK in 2016-7, gathering information from more than 200 men via an online survey. Her latest study, published this week - based on one-to-one interviews with 30 men between May 2018 and July 2019 - explores in greater detail the context in which forced penetration occurs, its consequences, and the response of the criminal justice system. All the participants were anonymised, but I will call one of them John. John says the first sign that something was wrong was when his partner started to self-harm. After a particularly frightening incident he rushed her to A&E for treatment. The couple spent hours discussing possible psychological causes. About six months later instead of harming herself, she trained her sights on John. "I was sitting in the living room and she just came in from the kitchen, punched me very hard on the nose and ran off giggling," John says. "The violence then started happening quite regularly." She tried to get help from her GP, John says. She had some counselling, and she was referred to a psychologist - though didn't attend the appointment. She'd come home from her job "and basically demand sex", he says. "She would be violent, and it got to the stage that I dreaded her coming back from work." On one occasion John woke up to find that his partner had handcuffed his right arm to the metal bed frame. Then she started hitting him on the head with a loudspeaker from the stereo system beside the bed, tied up his other arm with some nylon rope and tried to force him to have sex. Scared and in pain, John was unable to comply with her demands - so she beat him again and left him chained up for half an hour, before returning and freeing him. Afterwards she refused to talk about what had happened. (Webmaster's comment: Any forced penetration is rape regardless whether the victim is a man, women or child!)
