->"Manís discovery that his genitalia could serve as a weapon to generate fear must rank as one of the most important discoveries of prehistoric times, along with the use of fire, and the first crude stone axe."
-->--Susan Brownmiller, ''Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape''

Rape is one of the more difficult subjects to handle in a work of fiction, not least because (unlike, say, a gruesome and violent murder) there is a higher chance that one of the work's readers has experienced this crime first-hand. For the most part, the tropes that have been collected here describe less sensitive and sometimes [[ValuesDissonance downright backwards]] depictions of rape.

[[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil For obvious reasons]], many of these tropes are considered crossing the MoralEventHorizon. Though it's sometimes used as a cheap way to make the heroes look better in comparison even if they [[DesignatedHero don't fit any definition of "Hero".]]

Contrast FlirtingAndCourtship (trying to get it on with someone ''properly'').
