: Rape is a very touchy subject, so I'd like to make it clear that this thread's purpose is to discuss the matter seriously.
Do you consider the following situations to be rape?
1. A seventeen year old girl runs away from home and while walking down the street, a man in his forties approaches her and asks her why she's outside alone late at night. She tells him that she's run away from home, so he offers her the opportunity to stay in a spare bedroom at his home. She accepts and while she's lying down in the spare bedroom trying to fall asleep, the man enters and proceeds to have sex with her. She never resists, neither physically nor verbally, and allows him to have his way. However, she's afraid and doesn't want what's happening to her to happen. Is this rape, in your opinion?
2. A nineteen year old woman signs up for a pornographic video shoot. During the shoot, she experiences pain and places her hands on the man's pelvis to minimize his thrusts and moves around a lot to distract herself from the pain. However, she never tells the male actor to stop. Is this rape, in your opinion?
