We need to talk about sexual abuse and violence across its wider spectrum. One form that isn’t discussed much but leaves survivors struggling with the aftermath — often without the ability to put language to their experience — is coercive rape.
Coercive rape is just that — rape. It isn’t sex because the consent is fabricated. If you manipulate someone this isn’t seduction.
It’s exploiting them for your own gain. It’s getting them to change their behavior and actions. If saying “no” isn’t respected, a “yes” cannot be valid.
