    Quarter of men 'admit to rape in parts of Asia'

    BBC News - Almost a quarter of men 'admit to rape in parts of Asia'

    These are shocking statistics....


    Percentage of men admitting rape

    Papua New Guinea Bougainville Island - 62%
    Indonesia Papua Province - 48.6%
    Indonesia urban - 26.2%
    China urban/rural - 22.2%
    Cambodia - 20.4%
    Indonesia rural - 19.5%
    Sri Lanka - 14.5%
    Bangladesh rural - 14.1%
    Bangladesh urban - 9.5%


    Almost a quarter of men surveyed in a UN report looking at violence against women in parts of Asia have admitted to committing at least one rape.

    Rape was particularly common within relationships. However, one in 10 men admitted raping a woman who was not their partner.

    Ten thousand men from six countries took part in the survey.

    It is the first multi-country study to examine how widespread violence against women is and the reasons behind it.

    Of those who admitted rape, just under half said they had done so more than once.

    The prevalence of rape varied between countries.

    In Papua New Guinea, more than six out of 10 men surveyed admitted forcing a woman to have sex.

    It was least common in urban areas of Bangladesh, where it was just under one in 10 and Sri Lanka where it was just over one in 10.

    In Cambodia, China and Indonesia it ranged from one in five to almost half of all men surveyed.




    The authors said that the findings do not represent the whole Asia and Pacific region - but the survey respondents do provide a good demographic match for the countries studied.

    Men were asked questions like:

    Have you ever had sex with your partner when you knew she didn't want to but you thought she should agree because she's your wife/ partner?
    Have you ever had sex with a woman or girl when she was too drunk or drugged to say whether she wanted it or not?
    They recorded their answers on hand-held computers while the interviewer left the room.

    'Sexual entitlement'
    Nearly three quarters of those who committed rape said they did so for reasons of "sexual entitlement".

    Report author Dr Emma Fulu said: "They believed they had the right to have sex with the woman regardless of consent.

    "The second most common motivation reported was to rape as a form of entertainment, so for fun or because they were bored."

    That was followed by using rape as a form of punishment or because the man was angry.

    "Perhaps surprisingly, the least common motivation was alcohol." said Dr Fulu.

    Men who had themselves suffered violence as children, especially childhood sexual abuse were more likely to have committed rape.

    "These data justifiably create global outrage, accentuated by horrific recent high-profile cases, including the brutal gang rape of a student in New Delhi," said Dr Michele Decker from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore

    "More than half of non-partner rape perpetrators first did so as adolescents, which affirms that young people are a crucial target population for prevention of rape.

    "The challenge now is to turn evidence into action, to create a safer future for the next generation of women and girls."

    Professor Rachel Jewkes, who led the research in Papua New Guinea, said the area they surveyed - Bougainville - had a particularly turbulent history, with an extraordinarily destructive civil conflict extending from the late 1980s to beyond 2005.

    "It's an area where the conflict hasn't been absolutely resolved," she said.

    "When we looked at mental health we saw particularly high prevalence of post traumatic stress disorder including uncontrollable aggression, the disruption of normal social relations and relations in the family."

    But take a look at the six countries they selected. None are female-friendly. PNG is rape-central - almost all decent houses there are outfitted with rape cages to keep rapists out. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have the normal West Asian attitude towards women. China - toss female kids out in a snowbank. Indonesia - Muslim. Cambodia - also a rough place for women. Why not S.Korea, Japan, or a few other Asian countries that weren't selected to give them the result they were looking for - surveys are all bullshit.

    If that's the definition of rape then the numbers make sense; I'd expect pretty large numbers of men worldwide would answer yes to that one.

    Looks like the Thais didn't make the cut.

    Relieved, I'm sure.

    They did - but the article was blacked out.

    One can hardly expect the asian male to behave in a manner other than that of a snorting rutting quadruped.

    Its cultural, and westerners must be taught to accept the fascinating cultural diversity that nature, geography and inbreeding has given us.

    Tits out for the lads !!!!!

    What a surprise that the few Christian regions of Asia are at the top of the list, and a Muslim country at the bottom.

    Zeeheekock's correct, the questions are loaded, and while they do add up to a sense of male sexual entitlement that probably does lead towards the horrific gang rapes recently publicised in India I think defining them as rapes is a bit of a stretch and likely to be unhelpful to the cause in the long run. Mind you perhaps it was just the news article that used the headline and not the study authors...

    The Koreans paid handsomely to be left out of this list.

    I wouldn't say they were loaded (and yes, if you look at the original paper, it's not quite as sensational as the BBC report) but when people bleat on about how it's all so obvious that Asians are busy raping their way across the continent, they might like to consider how many men on this forum would answer yes to the same question. A quarter? A half?

    Yes. This is fucking ridiculous. Absolutely fucking ridiculous.

    You have bought and paid for pussy in your bed and just because she doesn't "feel like it" it is considered rape ?

    Ah, because Socal equates wifes and partners with prostitutes? Sadly, I would expect no better from him.

    I think Davis and Zoo pretty much hit the nail on the head. A lot of men do feel a sense of sexual entitlement towards their partner - and in some men that feeling extends towards all women. I know that I think no human being "owes" sex to their partner, of whatever gender and sex should be mutually consensual. It shouldn't be used as a weapon or a bartering piece, either.

    Violence is violence, sexualizing it doesn't diminish it. Guys get raped plenty, too.
    If there was an ethnic group instigating 90 % of criminal violence cases, what would most societies do?
    Then apply it.
