In some settings, it is taken as a given not only that AllMenArePerverts who think about sex constantly, but that the average man will immediately attempt to force himself upon any woman who isn't sufficiently protected. Simply ''not raping'' a woman is therefore in itself a sign that a man is a pure and noble hero.
Particularly common in LowFantasy settings whose writers are trying too hard to avert PoliticallyCorrectHistory or Anvilicious StrawFeminist works. Also often goes hand-in-hand with a SweetPollyOliver heroine, as this is the only way a woman can leave her home in one of these stories without being set upon. Strangely, ''men'' are rarely seen as targets for this rampaging rape culture, except in [[PrisonRape prison movies]] where it's likely to be used as [[DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale comic relief]].
Also shows up in old-fashioned [[RomanceNovel romance novels]], perhaps as an attempt to demonstrate the desirability of the heroine. In some of these, the only one who will ''succeed'' in raping the heroine will be the hero!
